    I worked at Lifesize full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Very transparent about financials, growth, etc.
    - Fun company culture and a cool product.
    - Making lots of the right changes, but still a long way to go when I left.
    - SaaS is a fun space to work in, but not for everyone. Need to love fast-paced and not be scared about putting in hours.
    - Generous PTO policy and salary.
    - Analytical approach to business is highly appreciated.
    - CEO is a good visionary.
    - Lots of smart/fun people work there.

    Cons

    - Video conferencing is becoming a commodity, the product is expensive, and most people don't like being on video, which makes it a tough sell.
    - Several poor hires in upper management made me question the company direction.
    - There were several instances where promises were made regarding compensation that were later broken.
    - Not enough opportunities for career growth for top performers, which is eventually why I left. I had several bosses during my tenure and only my first one asked about my career aspirations at Lifesize.
    - Product needed a lot of work to be a truly upper-echelon performer in the space.
    - Fairly high turnover. A lot of that was due to shedding the legacy business and under-performers, so not always a bad thing, but there were certainly some great folks lost in the shuffle.

    Advice to Management

    On the right path, but upper management needs to be reviewed more closely. Create more opportunities for your high performers to retain them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Lifesize (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    I applied online and had an interview with a recruiter. They later sent me an email saying that they were going with someone else. I then got an email from a very senior person there who interviewed me, with no mention of my rejection. I then never heard from them again.
