Making a Difference
Marketing (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXDecember 19, 2018
Livingtree is a great place to work! It's fun to come to work everyday knowing we are making a difference in the K-12 education space.

It's a small company with a start-up culture and mentality. Everyone here is close, and works hard to meet company goals.

The company sells two products that make a difference in the K-12 education space. The Engage product is helping school districts sustain their family engagement practices by providing a platform that creates educator - family relationships and promotes family efficacy. The Give product provides school districts with a fundraising management solution where they can provide every member of the district a place to fundraise online, while overseeing, tracking and reporting on the entire process.

It's an exciting time to be working with the company, and I can't wait to see where it goes.
Pros
Small company, start-up culture, hardworking and motivated team, meaningful work
Cons
We go through snacks and coffee very quickly

Exciting and impactful place to work!
Customer Support (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJuly 13, 2018
Livingtree is a great company, with a wonderful product, in an exciting market space.

Not your typical startup and I love the fact that we get to work to increase Parent Engagement in the K-12 space one district and school at a time. The impact of that company goal makes coming to work everyday meaningful and fulfilling.
Pros
Meaningful work in a fast paced environment. Experienced staff.

Terrible Company
Marketing Strategist (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXMarch 15, 2018
Company is a mess, there is no budget for marketing, CTO is the real owner, company has no future prospects, head of company doesn't even work in the office, most people sit around and waste company time.

There are no formal sales process, they do not know how cultivate a pipeline, drive leads, or have any formal training. Competitors have majority of market share and LivingTree will be squeezed out within 3 years due to not being able to close deals.

Their top salesperson who built the grass roots marketing program, created a referral program, and then used these referrals to leverage district accounts was fired. Definitely was a terrible decision from management because their acquisitions will be low causing a major loss in potential future revenues.

In short, the company is a complete, absolute mess with no real prospects because management does not know how to see value, delegate work, hire seasoned executives, nor does it have the budget or time for a proper marketing channels. The company is broke.
Pros
You get to help kids, although management doesn't care about the kids as much as the districts.
Cons
Listen more, raise capital for a marketing budget, be honest when you hire a person to do a job, instead of lying just to get them in the door.
