    Extremely rewarding internship experience

    I have been working at LiveCareer as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The people that work here are awesome! All the people I interact with here on a daily basis are such friendly and easygoing people. I've never had so much fun at work! The great people make up only one aspect of the chill company culture. LiveCareer wants people to be comfortable and happy at work (check out the stocked kitchen!). Everyone has a great work-life balance as well. People get their work done (and produce amazing work) but never seem to take themselves too seriously.

    I've been given a lot of ownership on some awesome projects as an intern. Never once have I been given plain busy work -- all of my intern projects have directly influenced the website or company in some way, making my time here feel really valuable.

    Cons

    The building is old and could use a little revamping but it's not enough of an issue to dampen my time here. The building's great location makes up for it -- it's right across from the Westfield Mall with plenty of shops and restaurants for lunch break entertainment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have had no issues with management! I thoroughly enjoyed working with and getting to know all the upper management I interacted with.

    I have been working at LiveCareer full-time

    Pros

    Tons of projects going on, there's always something to be worked at. Getting to the office is easy and there are plenty of food options. Free lunch Fridays, happy hours, and random events are always fun. Also doesn't hurt that I really enjoy working with my team.

    Cons

    More vacation days are always a plus. Plan for nighttime calls to sync up with the overseas engineering team. Work events can start late, it would be ideal if we could get them started earlier.

    Good people, good atmosphere, good opportunity.

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

    Pros

    I work with smart, fun people in a casual atmosphere in the heart of downtown San Francisco. It's busy and fast-paced, but not overwhelming so--pretty good work-life balance for most folks here, it seems. There's flexibility for people to work remotely sometimes, etc. Start-up type environment, a lot of room to grow & help define the company's direction. Salaries & benefits are competitive. We have company events that are actually fun. As an SF resident, this is my first Bay Area job where I didn't have to commute to the South or East Bay, which is sweet.

    Cons

    The building itself is kind of funky & old, and the elevators need some attending to. Communication with overseas offices sometimes is tricky & at odd hours.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

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

    Pros

    The team is smart and entrepreneurial. Each individual has a lot of ownership of their products and projects. The company has a ton of opportunity within, is keen to help people try different things, and has a great attitude of "let's test it and see."

    The office if very convenient to Bart. It's also in Union Square, with a lot of good lunch places nearby.

    Cons

    The building itself isn't that great. Slow elevators, not great bathrooms. The team is also spread out in different time zones so it can be challenging to get meetings that fit everyone's schedule.
