Pros

Not much micro- managing, which is good because you're in charge of your own responsibilities, so if you get them done when you're supposed to, you wont have any problems. Good compensation/bonus program.

Cons

At times, it can be easy to get bored, you need to keep yourself fresh and engaged in the task at hand.

    Pros

    The company provides good industry experience. Entry level positions offer pretty good pay. Some room for promotions and personal growth.

    Cons

    Very little attention from senior management. However, direct supervisors tend to micromanage. Old business models are translating into clients leaving rapidly.

    Pros

    Burst has a very friendly open environment, and the people in this office are all very friendly, communicative, and understanding. There is a lot of flexibility in balancing work with life and personal needs that come up. Burst provides free coffee, tea, cocoa, and fresh fruit daily, and caters lunch for longer meetings.

    Cons

    Since Burst was acquired by Blinkx Media, some of the benefits have been retracted. The biggest loss was the 401(k) match. We have also lost some of our holiday time, and the cap for vacation for longer tenured employees has gone down. The company has become meeting crazy also as a result of the acquisition, and the multitude of offices in various locations. There have been a few rounds of layoffs to hide revenue issues during some tough times. There are many places where this money could have come from than letting good employees go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, the management team here at Burst is pretty solid.
