    I worked at Meebo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Meebo 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.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, they are now Google.

    I have been working at Meebo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Complete transparency from the top down with very few "layers" of middle management. Feel like you are moving the needle with your work on daily basis. Great collaborative atmosphere with an even better team bond.

    Cons

    Could have been quicker to deploy some product features.

    I worked at Meebo full-time

    Pros

    Some 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.

    Cons

    Some 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.


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

    I worked at Meebo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working 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.

    Cons

    The 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 Management

    Promote from within next time.

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

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

    I worked at Meebo full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

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