I worked at blinkx

Pros

I could have stared out the window for hours.

Cons

I couldn't wait to jump out that window.

It's amazing that you can find some of the most despicable people in the industry, lump them together, and put them at the helm of a software company. There is absolutely no upside working for blinkx. The CTO is inept and has no management skills. The CMO keeps the fake hype floating, the COO isn't afraid to show preference certain folks, and don't get me started on the CEO. Wow, he needs to go to therapy to fix his feelings of inadequacy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take some business and management courses at the local community college.

    I have been working at blinkx

    Pros

    Excellent remuneration
    Opportunity to work at the cutting edge of technology
    A great bunch of people
    Good career development and a sense of progression

    Cons

    Bitter ex-employees posting whacked out reviews (see anywhere on this page)
    The free Friday lunch (nice idea but could be better!)
    Long hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency as to long term plans would be nice and better PR. The product we are building is awesome but it's a bit demoralizing when few people I meet even know what Blinkx is.

    I worked at blinkx

    Pros

    Hot space
    Interesting technology
    Good buzz in industry

    Cons

    Poor execution on products
    Terrible treatment of employees
    Poor communication- starting at management
    Bogus PR: papering the industry with meaningless press releases
    Lack of support, yet all the obligations on accomplishing things

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's time to clean house at the management level at blinkx, I don't think any reputable person who can contact people via sites like this or social networks will take a job at blinkx unless they are desperate.
