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

Pros

Amazing dynamic company culture, which really fosters the self-motivation to get things done. Team-oriented everything and everyone's very respectful and fun. Everyone's super excited about it and no one's ever bored.

Cons

Some weeks can get really hectic and stressful. There's quite a bit of work and always a lot of planning todo that can get overrun by laziness which means more work for other people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I really like the way that they don't have to micromanage everyone yet they foster such an amazing work-culture that makes everyone excited to build something innovative and cool.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Provides a lot of room for career growth. Has a very structured Human Resource team and operates like a big company. Free food and unlimited PTO.

    Cons

    The company is experiencing a high turn over. Has a hard time retaining talent. Smart but inexperience managers who does not know how to lead a team and tends to make things more stressful and complicated than it should be. Although the company is overly generous with gifts and compensations, they have a hard time tackling the root of the issues which is why employees are leaving.

    I have been working at Ooyala full-time

    Pros

    The culture is fantastic! Employees are very passionate about their work and always willing to share knowledge. There are always new projects to tackle and interesting challenges to overcome. I love working in this fast-paced environment where I can have a direct impact on recruiting efforts. There are fun team off-site events for every team and after hour events a few times per week (movie nights, game nights, and wine nights). Definitely a great place to work where you can learn from very smart people!

    Cons

    Some people have a hard time adjusting to the fast-paced environment but other than that, there aren't any cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing!
