    Lot's of autonomy and perfect job for the self-starter who doesn't need a lot of supervision

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosthere's a lot of ears open when you voice your opinion. You have the freedom to really branch out and take on whatever role you'd like to take. If you have initiative, you can pull in other employees from other departments or divisions to really make a difference..

    ConsThe industry is very fast face and ever changing. Sometimes it's difficult to keep up with all the changes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep looking out for the A players who are looking to take on more, and make sure they're recognized and noticed for their contributions.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A growing company with great opportunities

    Employee (Current Employee) Tempe, AZ

    ProsI have worked at blinkx for almost three years now. I have learned so much and really advanced in my career. You can make the position your own and take on new projects, as the company has grown a lot in the past few years. You work with people from multiple offices and continue to learn new things every day.

    ConsThe challenge of working at blinkx is keeping self-motivated. You are not micro-managed and you must be proactive at all times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI trust the senior leadership team is continuously working to make blinkx a better business ! I love working with a team that challenges me and helps me grow.

    - Good company outlook
    - Free breakfast
    - 1-2 times per week we get catered lunch
    - Awesome location in SF - All of the offices are in prime locations with great looking offices

    Great Company, Loads of Opportunity and Potential

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Tempe, AZ

    ProsHave been with Blinkx since they acquired us back in 2011, and in that time, the company has expanded, hired, and increased revenue exponentially. I've had the pleasure of working with many others across the other departments/Offices, and there's really a sense of teamwork in most areas here.

    ConsThere are some minor "corporate" issues that come along with being a publicly traded company, sometimes there could be lack of communication on what may be going on, outside of monthly meetings.
