Unique industry, intense work culture
Director (Current Employee), Washington, DCFebruary 7, 2014
Pros: fast paced, employees are engaged, lots of opportunities for those who seek it
Cons: cutthroat, less structured, compensation
- innovator in the industry
- management team consists of seasoned veterans with close connections to its clients.
- the company is segmented by the industries they serve with minimal overlap between the divisions.
- the life cycle of products flowing through LSI is relatively short so almost everyone interacts with a significant portion of the business.
- – more... You'll learn a ton more than going to a larger company due to each individual's ability to impact the bottom line.
- the company is fairly cutthroat given the sizable impact each employee could influence daily. – less

Job required me to do the work of 3 people, slow at hiring
Channel Optimization Specialist (Current Employee), Washington, DCDecember 26, 2013
Pros: monthly get togethers, pto
Cons: average 50 hour woork weeks, poor work-life balance
I have been working for this company for the past two years. When I started, I was told that two people would be hired in the coming weeks since this was a new department-it took them 15 months for them to hire someone to help me out and thus I was working 60 hour work weeks until that happened. They are very slow to hire and they dont mind giving you – more... more tasks to do if it looks like you have down time.

I enjoyed the monthly get togethers that they had each month. The health benefits are also good but the pay is average for the work they require. – less

Impotent Management
Analyst/Associate (Current Employee), Washington, DCNovember 12, 2013
There is a large possibility you may get boxed into the role you started in despite previous promises. Numerous VP's care far more about covering for themselves than taking logical actions to improve things around the office and often require way too much intervention in individual business decisions that they should have basic faith in their employees – more... to execute. They are also hesitant to develop their employees under them because it means they will have to spend more money or lose people under them, even though those people typically end up walking.

Great groups of talented people exist within this company and they will not be able to succeed due to incompetence in the layer above them causing interdepartmental squabbles instead of implementing the best available solutions. – less

Fast growing small company
Channel Optimization Specialist (Current Employee), Washington, DCNovember 8, 2013
Not very clear organization structure. So if you are entry level, you usually end up doing extra work other than in your job responsibility.

The Channel Optimization is one of the core groups. We manage company client accounts from the inbound till selling through. The work requires much immediate problem-solving because anything can happen at any – more... warehouse or selling channel. – less

Pros: excellent benefits, high growth, collaborative environment, great people
Cons: get ready to work hard...but don't worry it all pays off in both short/long term success
I've been with Liquidity Services, Inc. for 2 years now and it has been a very successful experience. I enjoy the work I do day to day while also experiencing long term growth in my career. Our company has been profitable for over 10 years now, which creates a feeling of both confidence and security.

C Level management is unaware of the culture
manager (Current Employee), DCSeptember 16, 2013
The upper management has no clue and the environment is incredibly negative. RSUs have dried up, so there is no reason for people to stay.

The facility in DC is extremely dirty. There are stains on the carpet and the walls need to be painted.

Great place to work.
Senior Server Administrator (Former Employee), Montgomery, ALMay 13, 2013
I will say that LSI was a great place to work. I was able to grow significantly as an employee. I would work there again should an opening become available.

Good Company, solid benefits, low pay...
Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Cranbury, NJMarch 5, 2013
Pros: good benefits, good amount of time off.
Cons: low pay, very strict, very easy to get fired for minor transgressions
I drove a forklift (reach truck) and they paid about $1/hr lower than average going rate in the area. I was ok with it because the benefits and vacation days were pretty good considering most companies aren't offering any these days. The company has a good business model that makes you feel you're with a stable company. I don't really have too many – more... negative things to say about the company itself; my issue was with the management team in the Cranbury, NJ location. Without saying too much, the amount of stress and headache they put their underpaid workers through was absolutely not worth the money. With a different management team and better pay I probably could've stayed for a long long time. – less

Not a fun place to work.
OPERATIONS MANAGER (Former Employee), Fullerton, CAJanuary 20, 2013
Pros: interesting business
Cons: no work life balance, average salary range.
Too much politics and no real direction for most of the employees. Some good co workers, but corporate and upper management are untrustworthy.

Work was easy, but lots of back stabbing
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee), Plainfield, INNovember 28, 2012
Pros: benefits were good.
Cons: very little support from management
Management sweeps MANY issues under the rug to make themselves look better. Some of the upper managers that travel were okay to work with.

Customer Support Representative (Current Employee), Garland TxOctober 30, 2012
Pros: no dress code
A typical day is to stay focused on your duties,be prompt and and detailed. There is no real training class however, when you first start it's like they show you a few times and then you are on your own.

Few rotten Apples spoil the bunch
LAN Technician (Former Employee), North Las Vegas, NVAugust 24, 2012
Pros: pay, benefits, hours
Cons: management, people skills
At first everything seemed great, but in the end it was a nightmare. After being given inadequate working conditions, such as having only a 6 foot folding table as my office in the conference room, I had been reported as having a messy desk even though the table was all I had and I had to work on defective equipment as well as keep any other necessary – more... items on this exact same folding table. When I had issues with the management at my location taking advantage of me and having me work outside my scope I still went above and beyond and instead of the LAN Technician I shortly became the Warehouse Engineer also. One of the warehouse supervisors had some serious attitude issues and even yelled at another employee in front of me for something she was not responsible for and on another day yelled at me and scolded me like I was child when he could have addressed me in a proper manor. Even though these items were reported to management, nothing was ever done to my knowledge. I had even reported an employee for cussing at me over the phone and nothing was done about that either. If you are good at brown nosing it's a great job. – less

Good company, interesting work
Administrative Office Assistant (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAJuly 16, 2012
Pros: worked with some great people, fast paced, each day was different
Cons: turned into a hostile work place
This was a warehouse that handled online auctions much like Amazon or eBay. We would have clients come in daily to pick up their merchandise from the auctions, some would pay online, other would pay 'in-house.' Some merchandise was sold by the pallet, and available for purchase at the warehouse. Scheduled clients in for pick up, as well as major shipping – more... lines, both for drop off and pick up of merchandise. – less
