I worked at LiveText full-time

Pros

Salary is OK, but not that competitive

Cons

Cliche management team who is over controlling and authoritative toward its employees. Benefits are minimal and certainly not industry standard

Advice to ManagementAdvice

This company has a very high attrition rate because they treat their employees poorly, they have an overinflated sense of themselves and can't accept perspectives or suggestions that are different than their own. Hire managers who know how to cultivate the strenghts of the employees and that allow for indepedent thinking and engage in true strategic planning (rather than being so recationary) and this company could do well.

    I worked at LiveText full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Was able to work mostly telecommute so I didn't have to be in a cubicle farm every day. The code base, written in Perl, wasn't bad.

    Cons

    The biggest problem I had with LiveText was nobody seemed to be the final word on a decision that needed to be made.

    Pros

    Higher Ed is a great industry to learn and work in. The core technology is probably the best in the industry. The company and product have tremendous potential to grow and a solid, but vulnerable user base.

    Cons

    Management is a disaster. It pains me to say this because the CEO/Founder is a successful business person who really means well. However, he has chosen to surround himself with narrow-minded, short-sighted, passive/aggressive albatrosses. The lack of professionalism, tact and basic team-building/management skills are stunning. Read the previous reviews. They are spot on. As long as this team is in place, there is no hope for growth. None. Zero. The smart move would be to sell out so that at least the core tech and client base can be salvaged before it all disappears. It's surprising that competitors have not seized upon LiveText's inability to grow. They might be even more clueless. Anyone thinking about joining this company in any capacity should seriously reconsider.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell now while you can. There's not chance for a management upgrade, so there's not hope for growth. Take the money and run before it's too late.
