    Pros

    Line managers really care about their team members. There is a real family feel in the DC-HQ and Arizona offices. Flexible work schedules for a good balance with personal responsibilities. Creative freedom. Relaxed culture.

    Cons

    Leadership. As LSI has changed leadership the culture which made the company great is quickly vanishing and being replaced with nepotism and the good ol' boy network. Beyond the obvious lack of vision and direction the CLEC team has lost touch with the people that made LSI great.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the people that matter. Hold executives accountable. Dump Truck Center.

    Pros

    Offers excellent benefits and pay. Multiple opportunities in multiple locations throughout the U.S. and other countries. Great products and services that appeal to both buyers and sellers

    Cons

    The company grew very quickly and had a lot of great success stories. This I believe to led to the eye being taken off the ball. With some recent mis-steps we are all now feeling the effects of management making decisions that take from the people who helped get the company to the top of it's game. Also, there are several marketplaces that make up LSI that are run separately and cause distractions.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the basics and let us do what we used to be able to do. Merge all marketplaces into one and become the next ebay, Amazon, etc.

    Pros

    I enjoy operating warehouse equipment (forklifts, reach trucks) so the job was familiar and I had fun doing it. The benefits were pretty good and my coworkers were cool.

    Cons

    Lousy pay, no room for advancement, micromanaging general manager who didn't know how to treat employees. Goals that were not attainable and regularly forced us to work our weekend. I can't speak for any other location, but I worked in Cranbury, NJ and it would have been a decent place if not for the poor management style and degrading nature of the management.

    Advice to Management

    Show your subordinates some respect and we'll go above and beyond for you. Disrespect us and, well we don't get paid enough to put up with being talked to like children so... you'll have a lot of turnover.

    Pros

    Benefits are decent, they do offer fun benefits and activities like Christmas parties, summer activities, weight loss competitions. Located in a good location downtown and metro accessible with parking discounts if you drive. 401k with percentage to match.

    Cons

    There isn't much flexibility with schedules and work life balance, sometimes a hassle only a few have work from home options. Have not seen room to advance or many career opportunities. The same people get promoted or acknowledged, hard to be able to be rewarded for a job well done.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more training and better work to life balance. Give career opportunities and advancement based on experience and not just eduction.

    Pros

    I absolutely LOVED this company up until March 2013. The people were just great...folks you're happy to work with as well as ok to grab a beer with when the work day was over. Trust me, many beers were grabbed several nights per week. It didn't matter which department you were in. The base salary, bonus plan, and equity package made this place super attractive as well. Unfortunately many of these "pros" are no longer applicable at this company.

    Cons

    If I had done this review a year ago, it would have been 5 stars all the way. However, the company changed for the worse in Spring '13 and has not come close to recovering ever since. Led by an arrogant CIO, many "legacy" employees who were in IT, Product Mgmt, Corporate Marketing, etc. suffered greatly during this transition. Anyone with a brain knows that change is a part of any organization but when the changes are perpetuated by lies, deceit, and a general lack of caring for the employees that drive the business - that's a sure sign that it's time to roll out! The incentive plans and equity package are no longer a carrots to draw in and/or retain top talent. This ship is sinking faster than anyone will admit too.

    Advice to Management

    People are your best asset - treat them as such.

    Pros

    When I first started working at Liquidity Services they had just bought out Network International. The work culture was great, small business flexibility with the capital of a large company. The work was hard and intense but after achieving great results they were very generous.

    Cons

    Once Liquidity Services started to really take over more and more perks were diminished. The office politics was at a ridiculous level, I spent half my time performing CYA task then actually getting work done. They would change policies at the drop of a hat, leadership was greatly undermined by lesser management.

    Advice to Management

    Trust but verify, a great deal of time and money is spent to train personnel but not everyone is held to the same standard. Small mistakes are going to happen, learn from them and move on. Large mistakes are overlooked according to seniority and should be further examined. Stop expecting everyone to play the same game when you keep changing the rules.
