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

    Pros

    You get to own projects Your work goes to make a real difference to the company (unlike other places i've worked - where it gets lost in the system) Pay and benefits are pretty good Good locations Interesting tech Generally a good bunch of people to work with

    Cons

    Hard work and long hours Lack of communication from management Recent high turn around of staff Some good projects turn into dead ends

    Advice to Management

    Dont let good people go More (any) advance warning of projects Work with the tech team instead of driving them

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good location Free lunch on Fridays Some good people (management excluded) Helps you understand how not to run a business.

    Cons

    Really boring, lifeless, uninspiring management team. Totally overhyped PR. Most is completely fictional. Rubbish product. Lets face it, who in the real world has ever heard of blinkx!! Where are these users? If you take out the porn there is no one left... Useless management team with no idea about the media industry. Culture of aggression, secrecy and leadership through fear. Do not work for this company. They don't promote people... period...

    Advice to Management

    Get some management training asap or resign Start behaving like humans Sort out the content on the site. Its rubbish..
