Awesome company, amazing opportunities, great career growth

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Liazon Corp full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI am a current employee, having been at Liazon for 3+ years. During that short time, I have seen growth and experienced opportunities that are very, very rare at other companies. Being able to see my division unfold in front of my eyes, as well as having the opportunity to grow my own career and take on more responsibility has been a wonderfully fulfilling experience. Liazon is a company that allows its employees to control their own destiny and further their careers as much as they desire.

ConsThis really isn't a "con" of working at Liazon, but it's important to realize that the company and one's own career is entirely what you make of it - employees who don't realize this fact are the ones who have a negative experience and fail to realize that they need to take the initiative and have the drive to succeed. Liazon fosters entrepreneurial spirit, self-starters and personal passion - if an employee has that, the sky is the limit at Liazon.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement at Liazon is a strong, intelligent, driving force and consciously cares for the employees' personal success, as well as the overall success of the company itself and realizes that one cannot be achieved without the other.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great Place to Work!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Buffalo, NY

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

ProsI have been working here for two months and really enjoy it! The climate is positive, people are friendly, and it is growing! I'm looking forward to moving into new offices next month.

ConsThe HR Dept is really cool but would like some structure around pay grades.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

Pre and post acquisition

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Buffalo, NY

I worked at Liazon Corp full-time for more than a year

ProsPre acquisition: Team driven collaborative environment focused on efficiency and problem solving.
Flexible schedule.
Free Snacks.

ConsFar below average pay for same titles elsewhere.
Impossible expectations.
Horrible benefits for a benefits company.
Clueless "Managers by default" .

Post Acquisition: Focus is on collecting invalid data to make flawed decisions on. Dividing previously cohesive teams, laying off most people for the non busy season then hiring tons of temps for the busy time of the year.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop selling shady fake products like 5 different versions id theft insurance.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Liazon does not advertise its compensation package. Salaries posted on this site are not an accurate reflection.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Liazon Corp

ProsWe have few rules here. Community service is important to us and we like to have fun! Our vacation “policy” is: Take vacation time when you need to refresh. Free snacks are always around. We use Bright Choices® for our benefits, of course! As an employee, you’ll have the freedom to choose which plans best meet you and your family’s needs.

ConsThere isn't anything that comes to mind!

We all work really hard. The results this year and on the horizon will be rewarding as we define a new space.

Account Executive (Current Employee)

I have been working at Liazon Corp full-time for more than a year

ProsLiazon's leadership is passionate, energetic, progressive and dedicated, among other things. Their attitude is infectious and runs throughout the organization. It’s resulted in creation of a superb culture of hard-working, smart, fun people of which I feel fortunate to be a part of. The Bright Choices product set the standard for an industry it's created, one that grows every day. Liazon is an innovative company that for employees provides a tremendous learning experience, self-improvement opportunity and substantial career growth. I’ve really enjoyed my time at the company and truly believe there is great success in store for everyone here in the immediate and long-term future.

ConsLiazon is a pioneer in a new, undeveloped space. Our work continues to pave the way for others in an industry that was badly in need of innovation. The private exchange model is an explosive business opportunity, one which Liazon is taking advantage of every day. That said, as a company and as employees, we are forced to work our tail off, be flexible and receptive to change, and to trust each other as we deliver on our lofty goals and maintain our place ahead of competition. If consistent change, dedication to company vision and patience are not strengths, this can be a challenging environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep us on this path of constant self-examination and innovation. If we can maintain our energy level and continue to adapt and change when needed, I feel great about our future.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Liazon - A Better Way to Buy Benefits

Account Executive (Current Employee)
Waltham, MA

I have been working at Liazon Corp full-time for more than a year

ProsEnergetic, young, revolutionary group of employees. Everyone has bought in to the model and knows they are helping to contribute to a true change in the way Employee Benefits are bought and utilized.

ConsAs with any new concept, it can take some time for the decision makers at the buying level to "get it" but once they do, they realize they have done the right thing by their employees - Giving them tools and resources to help make key decisions around their employee benefit selections.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to focus on the long term strategy; Empowering the consumer to make value based, sustainable benefit selections that are appropriate for them

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Sales Management a compnay that is at best dishonest, at worse devious.

Sales Executive (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Liazon Corp

ProsCo-founders very knowledgeable, bright, and articulate.

Solution though limited could be a good option if the company does not force the one size fits all solution that they re pushing prospective clients to now due to lack of back end support

ConsSales Management team is at best dishonest, at worse devious. They preach a " deal cures all" but then when you sell something the attitude is "anyone could have sold that." Extreme micro managing down to every call, how long each call lasted, how many conversations, how much information..never happy with results

Advice to Senior ManagementAdvice goes to Co-Founders. The sales management team you put in place needs to be reassessed and replaced.

You get out of it what you put into it.

Sales (Current Employee)

I have been working at Liazon Corp

ProsLiazon is a good place to work for a variety of reasons. There’s a lot of room to grow and build your career and everyone in the company is extremely pleasant to work with. As a sales person, I’m always pleased with the support we get internally. Management is very receptive to our ideas and actually takes the time to listen. You gain a lot of experience at Liazon that you normally wouldn’t get at an older/mature company. Overall, it’s a great opportunity if you’re looking to be a part of building something and not just showing up to a 9-5 job.

ConsWe're all dealing with the growing pains together, it's a new organization so if you're not capable of dealing with change this isn't the place for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementWe're on the right track.

A great company with a compelling concept & model to change the way group insurance products are distributed.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Liazon Corp

ProsManagement folks are true visionaries with a passion to make monumental changes in the way group insurance products are purchased by employers and their employees. I was glad to find kindred spirits that agreed that the industry needed to change. I was even happier when I met the rest of the employees and saw their passion and remarkable skills firsthand. This team is going to make it happen. What you will learn from these folks in this environment will be invaluable to you and your career.

ConsWorking at Liazon is an adventure.....not a job. If floating on the placid waters of a 9 to 5 job is your gig then this is not your pool. However, if white water rafting and white knuckled insurance excitement sounds like fun then check Liazon out. As you will be working with a team that is driven to disrupt an entrenched distribution model, you will need to bring all you have on day one and beyond. The first few weeks is like drinking from a fire hose at the bottom of the Marianas Trench. Much complexity exists in their infrastructure but once acclimated it's onward and upward. Compare it to Special Operations tryouts but for group insurance ;-)

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing but take the time to look for folks with a passion to make a difference in the industry.
