    Pros

    LiveOps is a growing and evolving company that has been around for 13-years. Sounds weird to describe it as growing and evolving after so much time but it still is. Regimes of management have changed and alternated the direction and focus of the company over time. The new CEO, Vasili Triant, is about uniting both parts of the business - the BPO and the SaaS side - and bringing us together as one LiveOps. One culture. One goal. It's great. There is a lot of opportunity to affect change here and help the company get better and better.

    Cons

    LiveOps has a great product but has lacked focus and execution over the past few years. There hasn't been a lot of structure around critical functions such as Product Management and Engineering. The teams have been left to forge for themselves as the previous culture bread a lack of accountability and responsibility. All of that is changing for the better but that change takes time. It's not easy to change a company's culture but I believe the current leadership team has the right ideas and paths forward outlined. Now it's time to execute.

    Pros

    The company has overnight transformed itself back into what made it great - employees & customers being #1. The shift from the past CEO(and his band of merry men), who almost destroyed the company, to the new Executive Team has been a complete 180 and nothing short of amazing. The future looks bright and I am excited to see the results of what we are doing. The balance of work and life has started and the company's core values are starting to be lived day to day.

    Cons

    Many people get confused if LiveOps is an BPO of a Saas company, whereas it is a Customer Service & Sales solutions business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drive the vision more aggressively, continue with the changes and direction, and leave the past regime to destroy another company!

    Pros

    Caring Management and great work environment makes LiveOps a great employment choice. LiveOps will help you grow as an individual.

    Cons

    LiveOps is not a giant company so in some roles you may not have 24 hour mentoring to help get up to speed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    I have been working at LiveOps as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I like LiveOps because of the flexibility. I have contracted for 7 years and it has been very steady and dependable. Generally, if you follow what their system requires, you can make a decent income.

    Cons

    I don't care for the way that the sales metrics are administered. You are very little more than just a warm body.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to first be clear on their policies . Then improve communication to and with agents. There needs to be more of a human touch and not canned responses to agents questions. People realize that nothing is guaranteed but transparency and honesty is appreciated. Making/changing rules midstream without them being fully understood is not. Treat your agents with respect not lip service!

    I have been working at LiveOps part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Seems legit until you have to pay 65 bucks. And wait, wait, wait.....it's been 4 weeks and there's NOTHING on my credit report and background check so they basically stole from me. I'm thinking if filing a complaint with the bbb on them and that shady background company they use called first advantage.

    Cons

    It is a scam, 65 bucks for what?? A con and a scam

    Pros

    Living in an area that has tough winters, working at home is priceless. Grabbing a cup of coffee and going to work while others are outside scraping off windshields is very rewarding, not to mention more lucrative. Setting hours as an independent contractor allows flexibility otherwise not available in the corporate job market. Be your own boss and set the bar as high as you'd like!

    Cons

    Too many to count and would be happy to share if the opportunity ever presents itself and the management staff really comes across in a way that makes me think they really want to know, rather than just listening to pacify.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As an agent who is working very hard to be a success with Liveops, you simply cannot deny human beings the right to a vacation, time off due to a death in their family or a medical leave. And to have any sort of penalty associated with those times is really stretching the boundary line of the independent contractor/company contract. While you cannot dictate hours worked, you also should not be afforded a way around it either. To me, the metric system is nothing more than a way of dictating time worked without actually coming right out and doing it. It's a fine line and one that is being stretched further and further. Also, because the "metric rules" have been determined and communicated, they haven't always been in place and to give some agents a line back and deny others is a bad managerial call.

    Pros

    The company offers unlimited income with opportunity to make money on several line groups. 24/7 flexibility, and no taxes taken out of your checks!

    Cons

    The only downside is the company strictly operates based on conversion and performance. You have to be a sale maker and not just a call taker. Otherwise you will suffer by getting very low call volume and make very little money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even though we are the peons in the company, we are still hard workers and we are human. Offer increased per minute rates and special bonuses. It helps us and makes us feel appreciated. We have families to take care of. Give us a shift premium for slow lines for dedicated agents. We dont want to sit on the phones all day and make very little money.

Our CEO paying back a bet. We crushed a company goal!
We built a new engineering rec room, including MAME (Multi Arcade Machine Emulator); many a disagreement is settled with Street Fighter
No rec room is complete without XBox One, Apple TV, and plenty of couch space
