Featured Review

Current Employee - Regional Director

I have been working at Castlight full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great team focused on continuing to develop an incredible product, while supporting a diverse group of customers. Thoughtful approach of aligning best talents with appropriate functions in order to... excel in a team environment.

Cons

The Benefits Navigation space is heating up with many realizing that delivering this powerful solution to employers is very rewarding; however, Castlight started the space and continues to stay in... the lead.

Advice to Management

Keep hiring the best, stay focused on the priorities of driving the business, and never lose sight of the importance of taking care of our client base.
