I worked at LiveText full-time

Pros

Salary is OK, but not that competitive

Cons

Cliche management team who is over controlling and authoritative toward its employees. Benefits are minimal and certainly not industry standard

Advice to Management

This company has a very high attrition rate because they treat their employees poorly, they have an overinflated sense of themselves and can't accept perspectives or suggestions that are different than their own. Hire managers who know how to cultivate the strenghts of the employees and that allow for indepedent thinking and engage in true strategic planning (rather than being so recationary) and this company could do well.

    - Lack of Respect and Professionalism from leadership
    - Clout, Style, and Credentials matters more than actual skill set and applied knowledge
    - Innercircle politics presentable in Office Dynamics

    Advice to Management

    - Direction needs to be adjusted from one director and shared across leadership and higher management of other departments
