Employees first!

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Mountain View, CA

I worked at Meebo full-time for more than a year

ProsMeebo attracted some of the best talent by fostering an employees-first culture. The company's founders saw to it that employees were always interested, engaged and happy. Beyond the usual perks of food and drink, they provided adequate time for education, vacation and enjoyment–often inviting employees to explore new technologies, experiment with new projects and even take part in fun and educational scavenger hunts.

ConsUnfortunately, they are now Google.

Great for developers and kingdom-builders, not so good for others.

I worked at Meebo full-time

ProsSome of the most brilliant programmers/developers I've worked with were at Meebo. Their location in downtown Mountain View was great, and most of the co-founders were great to work with.

ConsSome departments were big on turf-defending and drama. The company decided long ago to scrap their most popular product (Messenger) and its associated goodwill, focusing on an ad toolbar that most ad blockers were very happy to get rid of.

Should go down in the hall of fame for close-knit families

Engineer (Former Employee)
Mountain View, CA

I worked at Meebo full-time for more than 3 years

ProsWorking day-to-day with the smartest people I've met inspired me daily. Working across teams was always a pleasure because everybody was very empathetic and could see all sides of discussions.

ConsThe kitchen was all the way upstairs! Very few people were eager for happy hour after a long week, which kinda sucked but I guess is healthy :)

Opportunities for advancement were slim-to-none. Some teams grew, some teams did not, so I never leveled up.

Also, the company no longer exists, so... that's sort of a con, right?

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote from within next time.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Meebo was great

Web Developer (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Meebo full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat people! I am sad to no longer be a part of such a dynamic team. Working out of NY was basically working remotely as the majority of the development team was in Mountain View.

ConsThe company no longer exists as a separate entity, so no one can work at Meebo as it was anymore.

ProsThe coworkers are a fun bunch that like to go to happy hour together. People work hard and are very collaborative.

ConsWhen finger rocket wars get started, it can sound like a stampede and make it harder to concentrate on phone calls.
