    Pros

    You have the possibility of meeting some wonderful colleagues and making life long friends.

    Cons

    The IT Department is a joke. From hiring the wrong low level employees all the way up through management. This Department stays alive on the backs of few people that are practically chained to their desks to work 60+ hours a week to get it all done, simply because upper management/Directors can't seem to hire the right people to help their current associates out. CIO and VP of IT left the company in the last 3 months, so there are a lot of changes happening. But some of the executives in this company are just a complete joke. When they do manage to hire someone that knows what they're doing, the Directors will take all the credit for their work when its done correctly and when it's not they will immediately throw them under the bus. There is no sense of team work here, a lot of "ideas" with nothing ever getting done. Oh and if you aren't obsessed with ServiceNow, walk away because this company is starting to use ServiceNow for everything, and I mean everything. This company will literally suck out your soul and make you hate your life.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so focused on numbers. Start paying attention to people. Start actually trying to manage your employee's careers instead of just caring about the metrics. There is a difference between being "written up" and being coached. You need to invest in your associates futures and help guide them to where they need to be, teach them, motivate them, inspire them. Don't bark orders and when someone gets it wrong immediately write them up or fire them, it sets the worst precedent.

    I worked at Liquidity Services full-time

    Pros

    Liquidity Services is a great starting point for ones career.
    Great opportunity for growth and nice company environment.
    Great diverse group, with tons of surrounding experience.
    Great location to work right in the heart of DC.

    Cons

    Poor communication skills from management.
    You really have to come in and be the aggressor, job instructions and training are given poorly and failure to quickly grasp concepts will result in employee moral resentment.
    "They want great players to join their team, but grow frustrated when learning doesn't happen as quickly as they would like."

    Advice to Management

    Take time to invest in new employee especially with training.
    Establish the level of communication. Demand it!
    Break away from old fashion job habits and don't be afraid to take on new ideas.
    Understand that learning new things takes time.

    Pros

    Worked with a lot of awesome people and learned a ton. Great exposure and experience to upper level management. Your ideas and creativity is definitely appreciated.

    Cons

    Salary tends to be low, lay offs tend to be a common theme, there isn't a ton of room for growth or internal movement. The company does do a lot of team building events though, which is nice.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to employees and promote creativity. Keep promoting team building events and increase salaries. Try to reduce turnover and hold on to employees who contribute and know the business.

    I have been working at Liquidity Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been able to gain direct business experience and work closely with industry pro's.
    Very busy day to day but HR and management will still check in with you on your career goals.
    Exciting stuff going on in the company - new business ventures and system overhauls.
    Lots of opportunities to get experience.
    Regular office events and charity drives.
    Nice upscale office building in good location with free covered parking.
    Benefits and 401k match.

    Cons

    One of the pros of working for this company is the entrepreneurial environment and the exciting ventures that are frequently in the works. However with the fast paced nature that comes with this it's not always clear what the current overall direction of the company is. There are some bumps along the way with this but everyone knows what they (individually) are supposed to do.

    Advice to Management

    Seems like the focus is in the right direction. As you know a lot of people have worked hard this year and we've seen the business succeed. Keep on recognizing and rewarding. And let's make next year even more fun!
