    I worked at Lifesize

    Pros

    Lifesize still has some decent people there but they are leaving as other opportunities present themselves.

    Benefits are fair at best.

    They still do enough business to keep some folks employed.

    Lifesize's bonus formula's are flawed.

    Cons

    One of the biggest problems Lifesize faces is that the industry is changing past them and the company's relevance is starting to come in question. Cheaper and more reliable solutions are available to the problems that Lifesize addressed. The parent company Logitech is releasing cheaper and easier to use products that diminish Lifesize's relevance under the Logitech brand.

    Lifesize continues to spend a tremendous amount of money in ineffective marketing because others are gaining traction with cheaper and easier to implement products.

    Lifesize has become a very stressful environment because of this. They expect their employees to have no personal life and channel any personal time within the company to save the company while management sticks their head in the sand. They don't ever come up with a new strategy, their answer is to get people on the bottom to work even harder.

    Customers that have had bad experiences with Lifesize are ignored by management. Lifesize has put out products on a consistent basis that fall short of their hype, and in recent cases are releasing inoperable products. Whenever these issues were brought to their attention with suggestions on improvements that could be made, upper management becomes confrontational.

    Lifesize continuously violates laws and regulations when ever they see fit, and the management oversight is lacking in that regard. Example, sales management pressures their resellers to book business a quarter ahead of when they actually receive orders from the end users. Lifesize is also avoiding paying employee taxes to the state.

    Lifesize is not a long term relationship company, and can't see past each individual quarter.

    Misinformation is not beyond the scope of Lifesize in dealing with its employees.

    Don't count on their health insurance to pay for covered surgeries. Don't count on their HR benefits people to do anything to help you either.

    Lifesize offers no professional development training, or incentives.

    In short Lifesize's management acts like they are going out of business and don't know new things to do. Logitech doesn't want to dig into their pockets to do anything to save Lifesize. Logitech is irritated that they bought a loser for so much money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in some folks from the Logitech side to let you know what they are doing.
