    Pros

    Some great people, exposure to a rich technology platform. They deal with all pieces of advertising, including display, video, mobile, programmatic, and SOE.

    Cons

    Poor communication across business units makes it hard to see the Big Picture. Company seems to change direction frequently, but not decisively.

    Advice to Management

    Give more autonomy to mid-level management. Focus on communicating effectively, and getting buy-in from employees.

    Pros

    It's nice for working your straight eight hours and going home. There isn't much motivation to work extra or contribute more. Your coworkers you work with on a day to day basis are nice.

    Cons

    Blinkx doesn't create anything truly innovative or ground breaking on the tech side. There aren't many perks if at all for working there. This isn't an environment for you if you're looking to learn and grow. There isn't many areas to advance to.

    Advice to Management

    Please talk to your employees and care about them more.

    Pros

    laid back atmosphere, good benefits, competitive salary

    Cons

    Confusion on what exactly the products are and how they work (if they work?). With recent acquirement of Burst, there is various new roles that need to be played for your position which is aggravating/confusing. It will take time for this to smooth out.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more flexible with employees work hours. Should be allowed to work from home as long as job is getting done and there should be summer hours on Fridays (like most companies of this type in SF).
