    I have been working at LiveTV for more than a year

    Pros

    Really great people to work with. Management listens to you, and makes you feel like your input is needed. The tasks given to engineers are challenging and are things that haven't been done before so it's very interesting. Good pay for an internship.

    Cons

    I've been working here for over a year and I can't find anything terrible about the place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    I worked at LiveTV

    Pros

    Good benefits, some decent staff. BUT, be careful with the good old boys!

    Cons

    No strategy or vision Horrible leadership Terrible communication!

    Advice to Management

    Not much point in giving advice to the self-serving narcissist in charge, or the lackeys who call themselves senior management. The people you think you can't afford to lose are preventing you from building the team you need.

  4. "Hot and Cold place to work"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Melbourne, FL

    I worked at LiveTV full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Interesting work, great people, competitive salaries, competitive benefits. The work is very interesting and 98% of the people are fantastic. The salary and benefits are (at least used to be) on the high side for the area. (Disclaimer: Now that it is Thales, unknown if still the same)

    Cons

    If you are one of the "golden" people you are good to go - but if you're not...look out. Favoritism abounds here. If you are lucky you can keep your head down do your work and enjoy your job and the good people that are there.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of top management that don't know how to manage and all the favoritism. Nearly of the original people from Harris don't know how to manage. They started the company and they're in the top positions by default, not skill. Now that it is Thales, hopefully it's being fixed.

    I worked at LiveTV

    Pros

    Work is interesting and it's fun working on something in the consumer market.

    Cons

    Management at this company is poor at best. Directors are treated like they are technical experts, when in fact they are lacking in knowledge of modern technologies. Management is barely capable of understanding the technology that they are managing and very little attempt is made to foster good engineering skills. There is little to no work-life balance and the pay is average at the very best. Yearly bonus is up to 15%, but watch that go away with the new owners.

    Advice to Management

    Try to have more integrity. Be truthful and take care of your employees, rather than take advantage of them.

    I worked at LiveTV for less than a year

    Pros

    LiveTV is a powerful catalyst for both personal and career introspection. Such as "Why didn't I listen to my gut and NOT take this job?" Lots of free coffee. There are a "couple" good managers there (but I didn't work for any of them.)

    Cons

    Horrible work spaces, unreasonable schedules, absolutely horrible mid-level management and leadership. They treat the employees very poorly and in many cases are really cheap with providing the adequate workstations to get the job done.

    Advice to Management

    Try treating your engineers with some respect and not like a commodity. Get rid of many of your worthless mid-level "office politicians". Stop acting like a bunch of dicks!

    I worked at LiveTV full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Not making weapons or living off Government contracts like most local employers They employ up to date technology like C++, UML They take good care of their employees Lots of very smart people to work with

    Cons

    Leadership feels like a good old boy network. Suspicion of favoritism based upon religion/culture Too much authority given the technically deficient Project Engineering team, resulting in unreasonable schedules. Horrible unproductive open office environment They hire contractors for the fun new work, give the less challenging maintenance to employees They don't promote well from within, most managers are hired in vs being grown. Pointless random drug testing.

    Advice to Management

    Fire some of the worst VPs Promote from within Use employees for the new development work vs contractors Ditch the drug testing

    Pros

    Loss of flight benefits but a gain of tuition reimbursement. Every dollar counts education is not cheap.

    Cons

    Unprofessional, incompetent, no integrity!

    Advice to Management

    Your supervisors are a joke, never send a boy to do a man's job.
