Pros

I found the company a challenging and fast paced environment to work in. With new projects constantly coming up and very much at the leading edge of what technology can offer in this space.

Cons

Being a fast paced industry means that on the down side the place can be a little caotic or manic, some days crazy. You also have to scream to be heard and sometimes your voice drowns.

Advice to Management

Listen to the troops and be less quick in dismissing their thoughts. some great material comes from us and can make the company more successful. Also communicate more.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    an interesting techonology that has a lot of promise opportunity to get in early in the online video search space

    Cons

    paranoid executives micromanage ineffectively no recognition of talent childish vindictive and manipulative actions lacking self-confidence, management projects their own shortcomings onto their employees

    Advice to Management

    respect and reward your talent or they will walk away have a business strategy and plan accordingly establish core values and communicate them communicate with your employees don't think that you are above QA, documentation, and thoughtful planning treat employees fairly instead of blaming your employees, take a self-inventory
