Not Great, but Not Bad

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at blinkx

Pros

There was a flexible schedule and independence. Vacation wasn't too bad either and you do learn a lot.

Cons

Not great people to work with, not very professional and the staff is very green and junior. Many have bad attitude and there's a lot of racial discrimination. Not a good environment to work in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look into your Montreal office...Lot of shady business dealings there.

    I have been working at blinkx full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've been with the company for a little over 4 years and have nothing but good things to say. The work is challenging, but rewarding and management makes sure that the entire team feels part of the company's success. The company has been increasingly taking strides to make sure that blinkx is not only a great company, but a great company to work for. I look forward to going to work every day which I know isn't the case for a lot of people at other jobs.

    Also, free bagels and snacks are a big plus :).

    Cons

    Really haven't been too many, if at all. This isn't a "9-5 job" (as is the case with most Internet jobs) so if that's your thing blinkx probably isn't the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to tap into the entire team for ideas on how to grow the company.

    I worked at blinkx full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Smart coworkers.
    Opportunity to learn/grow
    Free food on Fridays and nice office
    When the share price was right-high value options

    Cons

    When the share price is low options were NOT valuable!
    Chaotic management style in engineering
    lots of projects and changes to projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to let engineers work on their projects for longer so the product can be better
    Keep letting people learn new technologies
