    Great game changing company, good leadership and communication, fun and nice colleagues

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLeadership open door and very approachable, fast and nimble, no office politics

    ConsNow owned by Amazon - which is great for growth however not a lot of fun, very process driven and much more corporate than expected.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust because we are part of Amazon don't forget to praise people - we seem to have lost that. We did a lot of things better than Amazon - don't always bow to them.

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

    Shortsighted and could do so much better

    Manager (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsIf you love movies, great perks, salary

    ConsThey keep doing the same things over and over again and haven't really addressed the fact that there is so much competition and customers now have so much choice. Everything seems to be a last minute thought. Poor location. No support from senior management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRealise that you're no longer the only game in town. Take more chances.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Very positive, good people to work with good sense of fun in the culture

    Recruitment Manager (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsThis is the place for people who enjoy films, don't need to be an expert just enjoying film is enough.

    ConsNot based in an attractive part of London, but would say the office make up for it.

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

    Working on the edge, with no safety line

    Senior Software Developer (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsWorking in a start up, the people are great and there was a sense of everyone pulling together.

    ConsVision is lacking from the execs. Focused on new customers. Will launch products for no reason.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the guys that know the code, they understand more about the business and customer than the disjointed figures you receive.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Thrived in a dynamic fast moving environment.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsThe people, leadership team, fun environment, changes, great popular brand, passion to do the best. Flexible, Successful.

    ConsIt won't suit everyone. Tight small teams with lots of new work, and constant changes. Can't relax and be complacent. Quite Intense. Have to like change and move with the business.
