    I have been working at Liveops full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work when you can. Self paced learning. NO one looking over your shoulder.

    Cons

    Training is not long enough and very unorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Smaller training classes. Facilitators need more training.

    I have been working at Liveops part-time

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, ability to obtain one-on-one support if scheduled ahead of time, decent pay

    Cons

    Unpaid LENGTHY training but still not sufficient to equip you to do a proper job, no telephone number to call for assistance. It takes a good long while to help customers when you're new, which KILLS your average handling time. When your AHT is affected, you get fewer calls. With fewer calls, you can't gain the experience to be more efficient. It's frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    It would have made a world of difference if I had been given an opportunity to shadow an experienced agent on calls during the time I was in training. Instead, the customers have to pay the price for the inexperience of a new agent.

    I worked at Liveops part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, flexible hours if you get to the schedule in time

    Cons

    Horrible training, most of it is just skipping over required sections because "you won't need this."
    When you have a problem with a customer, which you will on every call, you are taught to escalate it to Tier 2, which is a bunch of people with as little training as you. They will not be able to help you and the wait time is terrible. You will be on a call with a customer for an hour waiting on a response from Tier 2 and in the end, they won't help you either.
    Every part of the Intuit software falls apart or just generally doesn't work from the start. You will find yourself running into errors on your own software at least once per call, with no help from Tier 2 or your supervisors.
    If you try to transfer the call to a higher up, good luck. Most of the time, the software screws up and sends them right back to your line so you can get yelled at a second time.
    They tell you in training that calls should last between five and twenty minutes for you to get a good score when you're reviewed, but be prepared for every call to last at least a half hour unless it's a simple problem that you can fix on your own. The TurboTax software is horrible for customers and extremely confusing even to support techs that have been "trained" on it, so be prepared for pissed off customers that you won't be able to help outside of taking a shot in the dark.
    They will push for you to use the screen share software on as many calls as you can, but be warned. They don't tell you that for this to work, the customer has to download the software via a website and not every customer will be willing or able to do this. It's a hassle that you don't need for a simple password reset.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to provide better training. It's terrifying to be on the receiving end of an enraged customer and having to tell them you don't know how to fix their issue. Tier 2 is absolutely horrible and shouldn't be the first line of defense when confronting serious problems and their chat is usually bogged down with new employees asking the most basic questions that don't require Tier 2 assistance. Having your employees rely on Tier 2 is the worst thing you could possibly do for customer service.

    Pros

    Working from home every Friday

    Cons

    Ops leaders are not right for the job. They lack vision and strategy.

    Advice to Management

    HR should be fair and objective. HR always sides with Ops leaders and targets employees if Ops leaders want them out. We lost so many good people. Employees lost hope and are discouraged.

    Pros

    Amazing place to work! Flexible scheduling, fair compensation, and what I personally like the most is how friendly and inviting the executives were.

    Cons

    Truley not applicable, and I'd be the first to say so if that was indeed the case.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be as warm and inviting as you all where when I had the opportunity to meet with you guys.

    I worked at Liveops full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility was the only real pro. No set hours, work from home option on Fridays, and many employees are remote full-time.

    There were some good people at the company who I'm glad I had the chance to meet and work with.

    The business model has the potential to be really cool and relevant.

    Cons

    Liveops has been struggling to find direction and purpose for a long time. Constant severe leadership changes made it impossible to commit to a plan. The lack of clarity hurt all levels of the organization during my time there.

    There was always too much happening behind the scenes for me to feel safe or comfortable at Liveops. Other employees felt this too as we watched key people get strategically fired or laid off and replaced.

    I wasn't treated badly at Liveops, but the constant stress and frustration of convoluted goals and nonstop shuffling of teams wasn't worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Get the vision straight and stick to it for at least 12 months. Change is inevitable, but when it's relentless it becomes impossible to focus.

    I understand that employees have to be let go for any number of reasons, but arranging layoffs and replacements behind everyone's backs is shady and breeds the bad culture that drives good people away.
