Started off very promisingly but management ineptitude contributed to a rapid downward spiral.

Manager (Former Employee)

ProsGood brand recognition within the industry, and therefore good ability to develop professional network.
Nice office space and competitive benefits packages offered to staff.

ConsIncredibly poor management and leadership. Very little (if any) interest taken by senior management to help grow, develop and reward staff.
Regular misinformation communicated by management to staff re: state of company's financially and business-wise.
Consistent downsizing across the company throughout Q1 2011 done over a number of months, rather than coordinated and all at once.
Staff morale across the board very low.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to you staff, reward the achievers, and be candid with your employees about the state of the business, the company mission, etc.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

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


    Pros: Benefits and perks are SF standard / slightly above. Location is A+ for me… Cons: I arrived in the middle of a pivot and quite a few folks (including VPs)… Advice to Senior Management: Building a real business is equally as important as changing… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Customer Success (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

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


    Pros: Super impressive technology and product, big vision, amazing office space in the heart… Cons: I'd like to see more training opportunities for employees to set us up for greater career growth. There are still a few bad apples… Advice to Senior Management: Put together some cool new training programs for us to expand our skills. … Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
