    Pros

    LifeSize offers a good work/life balance with a competitive atmosphere, which encourages professional growth. The people at LifeSize are for the most part extremely competent and friendly, which makes the vibe in the office very enjoyable. Everyone has something to contribute to the team and something to learn from one another. Social and team building events within the company and with families are also routinely encouraged to strengthen work relationships and bonds.

    Cons

    Since merging with Logitech, LifeSize is growing at a fast rate. This has brought about changes a little too fast for employees' taste. Also, sometimes it feels like the two companies are a little disconnected between what each does. Nonetheless, it is nothing that will not be resolved given time.

    Advice to Management

    For those who do not do so already, just to take the time to meet with each of the individuals in your group, no matter how high or low their status in the company. Understandably, time is an issue with the immense amount of meetings and engagements that upper management needs to attend, but sometimes weeks go by and it feels like no one has heard from you. Even a small appearance and acknowledgment can make a person feel recognized.


  2. "Once a great place to work but the place went downhill fast after the acquisition by Logitech"

    Pros

    This is great technology to work with. Before the acquisition this was a good place to work. Exciting growth and lot's of flexibility.

    Cons

    In all of my years of work I have never worked for such an unethical and brutal management structure. As the company grew past 100 employees and the need to make the growth targets set my Logitech it became a brutal place to work. 2010 was a brutal year at LifeSIze and there has been a steady exodus out of there in 2011.

    Advice to Management

    I actually like Craig and in general he is a good manager. He has surrounded himself with people who do will do just about anything to their employees to attain their goals.
