Pros

Faced paced, high reward work environment. Co-workers are no nonsense, smart and hard working. Company is growing fast, creating lots of opportunity for advancement.

Cons

blinkx is growing so fast that the support infrastructure is having trouble keeping pace. The company needs to focus on how to make the transition from a small organization to a mid-size company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve companywide communication channels. With the hyper growth that's taken place over the last year management needs to do a better job of communicating to the various business units. Improved communication will help the various business units understand what each other are doing and provide more opportunity for collaboration.

    A decent place to start, but not to grow.

    Pros

    There is a fair amount of flexibility with working hours and I've had a good balance with my work/personal life. I've received promotions and have learned a lot.

    Cons

    Information is not provided very openly. Senior management is not supportive of employees sharing ideas or making suggestions about the progress of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fear based management doesn't produce results and it doesn't make your employees respect you. Don't expect people to have trust in you when you make decisions that don't seem to be well thought out.

    Pros

    My peers were top quality. Everyone was competent and good at their jobs. They all left and got better jobs elsewhere.

    Cons

    Terrible management. They yell and cuss at others in the office. They have no direction other than to do what they can to make good press releases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to relax and let people do their jobs properly. Try to actually develop a real product rather than "do deals" that sound good in press releases.
