      Pros

      The people that Castlight hire are generally dedicated to a fault, but eventually all wear out and move on.

      Cons

      ***Beware --- Mass exodus happening*** The Senior and Executive leaders are inexperienced and cannot seem to agree on a solid business plan. The company has been in a "turn-around" for many years.

      Horrible leadership in recruiting

      Pros

      Lots of great people work here. Many have been here for years and are passionate about the company product.

      Cons

      The leadership in their recruiting team was the absolute worst. She did not allow for work life balance, demanding that recruiters answer emails within 2 hours even on the weekends. Not supportive. Very tyrant-like management style. Leadership throughout the company took a lot of time off, as there is unlimited vacation, which made it hard to close out positions. But recruiters were never allowed to take off. Threatened to be replace even if asked off weeks in advance.
