    I worked at OnLive full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the greatest talent I have ever seen. Some open to new ideas, others stuck in their ways.

    Cons

    Company was run into the ground with multiple, idiotic management decisions. In fact a good portion of the Ops team came as a group and then left as a group to move to another company when we needed them most. They all ditched to go work for a company that makes fancy thermostats.

    Advice to Management

    Some management were rude and disrespectful to their employees. One person in particular would be Mr. M, we'll call him. Often shushing people mid sentences like they were dogs and ignoring co workers when they would even say hello. However the largest problem was at the top of the food chain. CEO made selfish, poor, egotistical and poor business decisions.

    The product was great and with the right management it would have exploded. However that didn't happen.
