Blinkx is a terrible place to work. Poor leadership and communication from management.

Senior Manager (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsCool technology and hot industry. It's also a good location in downtown San Francisco near the Ferry building.

ConsThe management is very poor leaders and just puppets to the primary investors. Also a very competitive industry so not a lot of upside. They structure your salary as such: 70% base salary and 30% bonus salary. That's true for all their employees! So for example say you agree to $100k salary in your offer. You'll only get a guaranteed 70k!

Advice to Senior ManagementGet some management training and understand why the company has such a high turnover rate. All your employees are unhappy but you have no idea.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
