Managers push employees only to make themselves look good.
Don't believe the image.

Not a good place to work.

They will suck you dry.

To them, the workforce is disposable.

Not worth the trouble. Save yourself. Management is non-existant. CEO is volatile. No HR department. Harassment is rampant. Poor morale. Frequent turnover.

The culture is authoritarian. Tons of mental abuse and manipulation. All top clients gave “bailed” and left the company. You will never “win”. Stay far far far away from this company ........

Worst job I've ever had. The owner is a complete loser. His daughter goes around spreading gossip and drama all day. Then someone gets fired for it. No Advancement, No raises, You work will be thrown into your face and you will have trasdh talked about you infront of the entire company during meetings. Its the most unprofessional, sexist, dead end job Ive ever had. Every day away from that place has been a blessing. FIND SOMEWHERE ELSE TO WORK, Trust me!
Pros
None, swear
Cons
Condscending Owner, Endless Drama and Gossip, no credit for work, no advancement.

A lot of work and poor pay. Not much room to advance career. It is a good stepping stone to gain experience and move on.

Managers show favoritism and don't rewards employees for hard work. Pay increases are a joke and company is headed in the wrong direction due to poor management.
Pros
days off
Cons
workload, management, pay, direction of company

Very strange environment. Management has no idea how to support or grow employee abilities, which is ironic since they do overpriced training videos for corporate clients with too much money.
Pros
Free lunch on Friday
Cons
They manage by whatever trendy whim is in the air.

Lightspeed is a great starting place for anyone just graduating high school who wants to learn first-hand about Market Research in an expedited timeline. The company has gone through much change in the last few years which is not unusual when you look at the marketplace however the consistency of significant changes year over year leads one to not be able to get behind the company goals.
There is unfortunately not much room for growth as open positions in management are very unusual to find. Also, salaries do not reflect the amount of time that you need to work. Lightspeed expectations on work/life balance and actual needs from clients are vastly different, leading to staff working longer hours without any monetary gain.
Pros
Cafeteria, Benefits
Cons
Salary, Stressful Environment, Long Hours

LightSpeed is a hit or miss job. Management only prefers favoritism over hard working employees. They are cut throat. If you’re not kissing the managers butts your most likely to not advance in higher positions. I wouldn’t recommend this job if you are trying to secure yourself in a good psoition. They sort of treat you like you don’t matter.
Pros
Free lunch Friday’s.
Cons
Lack of good management, too many changes in teams, positions changes frequently.

LightSpeed is a solid company with good management. It is a small company so that influences some things. I would recommend this company to someone needing their services or looking for a job in the industry.

Culture, leadership
Cons
Pay structure not ideal

It is a Monday thru Friday job from the hours of 8-5. Working here was a pleasure and you didn't have the feeling of someone on your throat in the day. Of course there were times when you had to buckle down and work against to clock to get things out to clients.

The management changed a few times but we were looked mostly over by the CTO and basically would give you the feeling of working as a team.


The hardest part of the job is the position of "Content Configuration Specialist" was that it filled a lot of gray areas. Since the clients all had different content or different types of PDFs or HTML files to edit. Sometimes it would go smooth like butter, yet sometimes it would go super rocky and mistakes were made.


Awesome things about this job was the Free lunch Fridays and basically you had the freedom to go anywhere in the building when need be. The CEO would come around at times to see how you're doing and knew your name and made you know you were part of the team


Most of the team members for this company are great people.
Pros
Great coworkers, Free Lunch Fridays, Pool Table, Beer Kegs, Free coffee, Learning new things
Cons
At times unorganized, Management changed frequently

The team at LightSpeed VT is Top Notch. They’ve been able to help a lot of highly influential people over the years and you might get to meet and hear from some of them when they visit the studio to do a podcast or film content for their online, on-demand training courses.

LightSpeed VT's work environment is not for everyone, a true pay for performance company. If your searching to raise the bar and always play at the top level in the industry. Highly recommend LSVT for anyone ready to excel.

The development of employees is the best you could get with any company. They had unlimited access to some of the experts of the world so that you could improve the quality of your life. I learned a ton from being there, the people we work with are phenomenal and extraordinary.

This is the place to be if you're looking to be around winners.
