Pros

Can take ownership of projects. Interesting products and technology. Laid back corporate culture with free snacks, private offices and good compensation.

Cons

Starting to get too many meetings. Too much blame shifting when things go wrong instead of just owning up and correcting the problem.

Advice to Management

Make the sales team more accountable. Get our name and technology out there. Nobody knows who we are.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The best reasons are the talented, intelligent employees, the great products, and a dynamic environment with opportunity to work with cutting edge products. Also, located in a great building with perks (parking for ACL festival) and good benefits.

    Cons

    There are many including weak, arrogant management more interested their own ego trips and making their next 5 million than in creating and maintaining an environment where all can succeed. Communication is difficult with management and between departments. Employee support from HR is all lip service and no action - highly ineffectual. There is little respect for individual contributor employees-both time and knowledge, lots of overtime while senior management leaves at 5

    Advice to Management

    Be competent and care - dont pay lip service to being a "Best Place to Work" -actually walk the walk! Listen to the experts in each department. You hired them for their knowledge and then choose a solution contrary to their knowledge and advice and force them through intimidation to follow.


  2. "Great Culture and People"

    I worked at Lifesize as an intern

    Pros

    Nice facilities, open and transparent workplace, and a company that places a lot of emphasis on culture and treating its employees well. Innovative and full of smart people!

    Cons

    Mopac traffic! But the central location and views make up for it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you are doing
