How are senior leaders perceived at Live Smart Solutions?

Pros

Worked from home. That's all.

Cons

Working at BB was one of the strangest experiences in my life. Like the time I was told not to contact anyone that had auto payments but never used the product because if we made them aware they were still getting billed, they may cancel. They make big promises when they hire you, but they don't come true. They really don't care about people. They will hire top notch people, get their advice on what needs to be done, praise them for being "amazing", then fire them because they can't afford them. Of course they don't tell you they are only using you to try and find out how to save this sinking ship. The CEO is clueless as to how businesses run. When the company started they took off, but they don't have a clue as to why. And when the revenues started to dry up, they had no clue how to adjust the company to make it profitable again. CEO is checked out and spend all of his time building his 19,000 sq ft house in the mountains. You have to read his blog post about flying his airplane around the world to big events. All while the long time staff are starving. They don't have a clue so they just cut back to to the amount of staff they can pay from the revenue of those people that are unaware they are still being billed.

Advice to Management

Be honest. Don't take money from people that are unaware you are still auto-drafting their credit card accounts. The problem isn't the staff, it's the sacred cow programs that no longer work.

How are promotions handled at Live Smart Solutions?

Pros

None aside from working from home.

Cons

This company is purposely missclassifying employees as contractors to avoid being responsible for legal protections, paying benefits or unemployment. The never offer promotions and the pay is awful. They are supposedly a Christian based company but mislead their customers and treat their employees and contractors terribly. They pay late which is illegal, fire anyone who has an opinion against theirs. Morale is low but they pretend to be hunky dori. From the lips of other current and past employees it’s a toxic environment and the company appears to be in financial trouble.

Advice to Management

Get rid of yourselves. Advice to the owner, realize everyone is unhappy and looking for other jobs. You are putting your company at risk of lawsuits and fines by the IRS.

How is management perceived at Live Smart Solutions?

Pros

My position was fully remote and the pay was good

Cons

My time with Beyond Diet was the most bizarre work experience of my life. I was recruited by a talent agency while at a full-time position with great benefits. Being that I wasn't actively looking for a new position, I was hesitant to even interview for the job, but ultimately did. The Beyond Diet employee I interviewed with was incredibly excited about how I could contribute to the company and offered a contract position immediately. I was told it would be full-time contract for a couple months (through the talent agency), and then I would be brought on as a Beyond Diet employee with great benefits and flexibility. I was given enough assurance to quit my full-time job with benefits. On my first day working with Beyond Diet, my boss (who I interviewed with) quit. I was contacted by his replacement (who was actually keeping his current job AND taking my would have been boss' position) and told everything would be okay. For the first couple of months, I was given plenty of work, knocked it all out, and received great feedback. Communication was very limited (only email - no phone), but it seemed like all expectations were being exceeded. After those couple of months, I completed all projects on my plate. I emailed my boss to ask what I should work on next. After two emails and not receiving a response, I emailed his boss to understand what was going on. After no response from either of them, I contacted the talent agency who I was still contracted under. Thoroughly confused, the talent agent was finally able to get in contact with my Beyond Diet boss who had denied ever agreeing to me being a 40 hour/week contractor OR to the intent of bringing me on as a Beyond Diet employee AND was refuting my weekly timecard. To make matters even more bizarre, my talent agent let me know he had talked to my Beyond Diet boss a month into my contract and was given praise for me and my work and received reiterated intentions of bringing me on as a Beyond Diet employee soon. I never heard anything from my Beyond Diet boss or his boss to culminate my experience. No "thank you for the work but we've changed our needs" or even a response to my emails—pure ghosting that baffled both me and the talent recruiter. Our best guess is that it's a sign the company is tanking.

Advice to Management

Don't play with peoples' lives. You lured me into a job with false promises, taking me from a stable position with great benefits that I could still be working at. Suddenly removing a person's income and changing your intentions with no notice is inhumane, especially when the work went above and beyond. I'm not quite sure how you can sleep at night having such terrible business practices and not caring how you affect a person's life.
