Good Company - Good Management - Good Culture

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at blinkx

Pros- Awesome benefits
- Competitive compensation
- Reasonable management
- 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
- If you want it, you have a ton of opportunity for career growth

Cons- Growing incredibly fast, and sometimes unorganized as a result (will get better)
- Poor press displays false messages about blinkx, and who we are.
- Sometimes teams are understaffed, so hiring to ensure that employees havethe proper workload

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to transform the culture as you have over the last 2 years. Continue to leverage the blinkx team worldwide to develop the company into a world class name in the advertising industry. Continue to practice an open door policy. Keep doing what you are doing.

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

Great Company, Loads of Opportunity and Potential

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Tempe, AZ

I have been working at blinkx full-time for more than 8 years

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.

Internship Review

Corp Dev Intern (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at blinkx as an intern for less than a year

ProsEveryone is extremely nice, and more than willing to walk me through their areas of expertise or give me a hand in an area i am unsure in. . The general attitude of all the employees is very positive and everyone seems very energetic. Management is very intelligent and seems committed to expanding the company. The company is also expanding rapidly.

They also provide free snacks/beverages and do a staff lunch every Thursday which is generous of them.

ConsOther than having to do the occasional intern duties (running basic errands, faxing, etc.), and some occasional connectivity problems with wifi nothing really comes to mind.

Advice to Senior ManagementFix the VGA cable in the conference room.

Corporate

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at blinkx full-time for less than a year

ProsSmall office with a blend of start-up and tech corporate culture emerging. Think flexible with sustainable resources. Plenty of opportunity to have a career and have some fun. Lots of career oriented people at the Company.

ConsThere have been growing pains of acquisitions and also growing so quickly over the last two years. Those seem to be behind us and we are recruiting and retaining lots of talented people with ideas and the skill sets to grow blinkx to $1.0 B of revenue annually.

Advice to Senior ManagementSet up a one on one mentoring program. Hire more recent college graduates. Start an internship program.

Fun place to work in an evolving industry. Great people, excellent location!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at blinkx full-time for more than a year

ProsVery welcoming, friendly group. Company is expanding quickly so every day is very exciting. TONS of perks - kitchen snacks, random bagel deliveries, organic fruit every week, catered Thursday lunches, Giants games & happy hours. Adjacent to Embarcadero Bart/Muni station & close to lots of great restaurants & shopping. Great health benefits - this company cares about your health!

ConsSince the company is expanding and changing so quickly, information sometimes does not make it around to all the appropriate people, so that creates room for employee speculation & confusion.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more transparent. I know upper management is busy but try to make sure your employees understand what is changing. I don't know if monthly company meetings satisfy this need as not all branches are included in all information exchanges.

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