    I have been working at Livestream full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I could not ask for a better group of colleagues. Livestreamers are smart, hard-working, funny, but really down-to-earth. I've had the opportunity to learn tremendously in my time here, and they made me feel like I belonged, which is something I never really experienced in school or in any other job.

    Cons

    Live video isn't really the most exciting space to be in.

    Pros

    Everyone is super understanding and really wants to make sure you're comfortable when working. Also, fun environment, free snacks and breakfast and in house restaurant!

    Cons

    It's a start up so fast paced. Varying schedule. The area is a little out of the way in Brooklyn, can be a problem for grabbing lunch.

    I have been working at Livestream full-time

    Pros

    Young company, easy to make friends. Large open office. HR is trying to improve the company culture. Hours are reasonable.

    Cons

    The company has been around for 10 years and still hasn't found its market fit. Product roadmap does not align with sales and account management strategy. Many top executives have left over concerns about business and the company generally struggles to retain talent. There is little opportunity to move up in the company or learn new skills. Many of the teams are understaffed. Compensation is low by industry standards....

    I have been working at Livestream full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    As an employee who started with Livestream shortly after graduation, I was given a lot of opportunity to learn and grow. I started in an SDR role that allowed to become highly educated on Livestream's products, learn about the technology of the industry and the importance of live video as a communications tool. In less than a year, I moved to a full-cycle Account Executive role. As I matured in my role, I was trained...

    Cons

    Before moving to Brooklyn, I commuted from New Jersey and this wasn't the easiest. There aren't many food options outside of Roberta's and our in-house restaurant.

    I worked at Livestream full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    In-house cheap lunch. They reward employees with alcohol. Jesse Hertzberg is a great dude.

    Cons

    The product is obsolete and overpriced (Facebook Live). They think they are a big player in the market but they aren't. 12+ hour workdays. L-train to Bushwick. Low base salary compared to other SaaS companies. Culture is meh and morale is low. Sales management is jumping ship.

    Advice to Management

    Are you a streaming platform, a production company, or a camera manufacturer? Figure it out.

    I have been working at Livestream full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I have worked at a couple of SaaS organizations and the biggest difference with Livestream is the transparency from upper management. Your monthly tasks are set, so you know what is expected from you and how to achieve success. Everyone in the office is very helpful, Livestream is great environment to work in, and I genuinely can say that I enjoy going to work everyday.

    Cons

    Location is not ideal. Training is a work in progress and consistently changing workflow, but that is expected from a growing organization.

    Advice to Management

    Love the transparency and excited for my next steps within the organization.

    Cons

    Location. Traveling to and from NYC can be an inconvenience. Not being surrounded by good restaurants, coffee shops etc, is a shortcoming.

      I worked at Livestream for more than 3 years

      Pros

      They have some free snacks. They have a game console, a pool table and a ping pong table.

      Cons

      They have an open floor layout. The workload is heavy. Amount of work never ends. The vacation policy sucked.

      Advice to Management

      More vacation days. More flexible hours.
