    Worst job I ever had

    Senior Management (Current Employee) Fort Lauderdale, FL

    ProsCompensation is above average. Ranks (staff) below Senior Management are good people. Company growing and should not be impacted by current economic trends

    ConsWork/Life balance forgetaboutit! Comments of COO, “You sleep at home a least 8 hours a day.... so work life balance will always be slanted towards time at home”. All employees (including VP's) must use software to track their time minute by minute. Nano-Management (100 x Micro Management) by CEO to all, including most senior level VPs. If pay is the only thing that concerns you, Liberty Power is right up your alley. But if you think you have experience and can contribute to the corporation, you will be squashed every time

    Advice to Senior Management9 out of 12 VPs left in last year.... what else can be said. If you try to stand up for your right, I guess you would be the next to go.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Serious talent hired in last 12 months - this company is about to blow up

    Sales Manager (Current Employee)

    Pros1.) If you work hard, you will get more opportunity than any South Florida Fortune 500 company could possibly offer.
    2.) If you stand up, defend your argument with data, and build an analytical case for action, you will win. Not only will you win, you'll get rewarded with leading the initiative and with driving results.
    3.) Leaders are recognized and rewarded. How many times a year do you interact with your Board of Directors? Liberty Power offers the opportunity to sell the CEO on your ideas whenever you are ready to present them.
    4.) If you want to work hard and you want to gain responsibilities quickly, this is the place for you.

    Cons1.) Cushy, satisfied worker-bees need-not-apply. Seriously. If you like the traditional, boring corporate environment, this is NOT the right place for you. Please, strongly consider this advice. If you're not on-board with growing and developing rapidly, then you should not consider Liberty Power, because your ideas will be tested and stretched on a consistent basis.
    2.) Management does not want to hear why you can't be successful; rather, they want to hear what obstacles you are facing so they can be cleared. Many people are uncomfortable with this philosophy. You will be very unhappy at Liberty Power if you're not able to recommend articulate, actionable tasks.
    3.) If you're not willing to sacrifice a 9-5 mentality in replace of growing professionally, you won't excel here. If you've never been described as "a little intense", this may not be the best employer for you.
    4.) Growth oriented companies are different than non-growth oriented companies. Non-growth oriented workers generally have a hard time reconciling their ideals with Liberty Power ideals, so it's something to consider.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe employee engagement surveys are helping to build a culture that is satisfied, engaged, and forward-looking... don't underestimate the importance of this initiative. The new targeted selection process for selecting top talent for each role seems to be working. Make sure that every candidate is up for the challenge of working at the company; otherwise, the long-term employee retention rate won't be optimized.

    The company was about the low point to my career thus far.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDue to the utter lack of direction by management, you can be exposed to new and different responsibilities that could expand your skill set.

    ConsThe company places absolutely no value on work life balance. You are expected to place all other priorities in your life (relationship, children) below the company. If you are a well qualified candidate thinking about joining Liberty, it would definitely be in your best interest to look elsewhere, especially if you have options.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe company has the word humble as part of it's core values. It would be nice if they actually meant it, instead of being absolute hypocrites.

    Can be a good job depending which department you are in, and who happens to be the manager at the time.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsStill a young growing company. If you are patient, persistent and wise, you can probably find a lot of opportunities and find a nice nitche role for yourself.

    The company is slow to recognize its faults... but at least it does recognize them; which more than I can say for every other job I've had. For example, the work hours have gotten much more sane in the past year. Sure, you may still leave at 8pm 2 or 3 times a week, but it used to be 10pm every day. So its going in the right direction.

    Very kind, talented and driven people in the company. They put a lot of effort into hiring the right kind of person, and for the most part, it seems to be effective.

    ConsHands down the worst problem is the stress the CEO puts on the VPs. He scares the hell out of them. He blows up at anyone who has anything ugly to report. His attitude is only receptive of yes-men personalities. It's very sad seeing experienced and professional VPs reduced to cowering do-boys with forced smiles on their faces. "oh yes sir, thats a great idea sir, right away sir"

    Another issue is metrics. The motto is "anything that gets measured, gets improved". The truth is, "anything thats get measured, gets lied about". One of tragedies of these metrics is that the worst people tend to look the best and the best people look the worst. The ones who are really doing a quality job, will probably get less work done. I am so impressed when, time and time again, I see people try extra hard to help out a customer or fellow co-workers even though they know they will be punished for it when the numbers come out.
    But the ones who just care about how they look to their manager, will crank out sloppy work and shamelessly LIE and fudge any numbers they can get away with. The humble ones have to stay quiet and watch as these shady people get all the recognition.

    With the company growing so much, there are a lot of new hires. Often times this leads to unfairness either toward the newer or older employees.
    If there is an older manager, they tend to be comfortable with the good-ol-boys they've known for years. The new people in this case are viewed as simply a resource to help with the grunt work and nothing more. There is little respect for the multitude of years of experience they have, if you are new a Liberty, you are simply a newbie.
    However, if its the manager who is new, they tend to form a clique with other new people, especially those they were able to hand pick. The older people are viewed as a burden or maybe just someone to maintain the legacy processes while the new team can "finally do it right" and "fix" all that messed up stuff the old timers did. There is little respect for the years of experience the person already has with the company and the ideas they have to improve it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSlow Down! Gaining 1000 customers a week just to lose 900 is not as good as gaining 500 and losing just 10.

    The company is an awful sloppy mess because its trying to do too much too quickly. Pace yourself. You are making all the employees and customer furious. And for what! To make less profit and be able to boast about your growth
