    I have been working at Viki full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pros include: a fun and unique tool, a sleek and beautiful website, and a big community of users.

    Cons

    Cons include: very, very weak and inexperienced leadership at the top. Lack of direction and focus means constantly chasing new targets and playing fire drill every week with some new crisis of some sort. Exec team was very much into employee gossip and generally harassing and unprofessional behavior. Lack of accountability for weak performers -- there's really very little you can do that will actually result in termination here, which unfortunately, means a lot of egregiously bad behavior goes unnoticed/unpunished.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most, if not all of the C level should be replaced. Take some time for self-reflection and take accountability for your own actions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think common issues at most companies are magnified at Viki because it's a small team in four different offices. I can see that things have been moving in the right direction, especially over the last six months, with more rigorous decision making and some great recent hires. Last year there were some people who were fired for under-performance. It looks like the first negative review was made by someone in this group.
