    I have been working at Liferay full-time (Less than a year)


    Company Culture: Liferay believes that people are more important than the Job. They strive to help better each employee as a person and this bleeds through the teams lower level as well.

    Company Growth: The company is continuing to grow which creates new opportunities. The trick is the creativeness and drive of the employee. There are lots of places to grow and if you do your job well enough, they are typically willing to allow you to grow and build out a need you see that may not be looked at.

    Employee Perks: Liferay during work hours has free beverages (Soda, Gatorade and such.) Liferay Diamond Bar also does a Friday Happy Hour that allows everyone to hang out and do happy hour type activities.


    Liferay is growing and will have growing pains. This is true for any young company. This can be hard if you are use to a Corporate or a company that has long established structure.

    Liferay Management has been homegrown in a lot of ways. They are learning from other industries and competitors but again as they grow lower level employees will need to be patient or help the process to assist in leadership success. Feedback is always welcomed and needed when done with tact.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to the efforts you are making. Also, make sure to go to conferences and take counsel from other successful leaders in multiple industries to avoid unneeded growing pains.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience


    Phone interview, project given, then heard nothing back. Multiple emails sent to recruiter who claimed they did not see my email after not responding multiple times, said I made it to onsite.

    Then, recruiter did not provide details for going to onsite interview. Recruiter inexperienced and unprofessional, unable to keep up with emails and respond in a timely manner.

    Wonder how many good candidates are missed due to recruiter and what it might say about the company as a whole, considering the other reviews here. Felt my time was wasted.
