The dips of the roller coaster are evening out.

ProsGreat colleagues. Great vision. A good, professional vibe. Right now I think I have a feeling that the stars are beginning to align and we're becoming a "normal" company.

ConsA increasing feeling of disconnect from the product. I know the site is being redone, but it's taken forever to even acknowledge that it needed to happen. There is also silo-ization of the group by acquisition and product set. True, this could be overcome by the upcoming intranet, but it's a late and an internet was available through the Zango acquisition. It was sneered at.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt seems like most of the things that I think should happen are in the works. So I guess it's all about execution at this point.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Lack of Direction

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    I worked at blinkx full-time for more than a year


    Pros: 1. San Francisco Office next to Ferry Building 2. Catered lunch (but only once a week) 3.… Cons: 1. They don't know who to hire for what positions. A couple of recent hires have just disappeared and I'm scared to ask why. 2.… Advice to Senior Management: There is no communication to employees except for really big announcements (like the C.O.O leaving). No one knows what direction… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
