I worked at OnLive full-time

Pros

Brilliant, helpful, and gracious technical staff; fun culture; great perks and benefits. The underlying technology really is innovative and exciting.

Cons

Business model obviously wasn't viable; no reason to believe that restructuring will fix this. Frequent breakneck pushes to implement major new features with unclear, ever-changing requirements. The mass layoff was handled poorly.

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

    Pros

    OnLive's atomsphere created a family within the company. After all the layoffs, we all still keep in touch and are helping

    Cons

    Everything seemed a little sloppy in terms of organization, and a lot of employees were left in the dark about what was going on.
