    I have been working at Pixability full-time

    Pros

    - You get to work on things you are interested in
    - Management seems generally interested in your growth and development
    - Great colleagues: eager to succeed, help you and push you to be better, and go out for drinks
    - Super laid-back work environment
    - Lots of room for growth

    Cons

    - Pay is likely not as high as other companies, largely due to start-up, but still worth it
    - Industry interest is just developing, so company is still trying to find its identity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Keep doing what you are doing, but keep your eye on the future - the Youtube ecosystem is very unpredictable.

    Excellent company

    I have been working at Pixability as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    CEO has tremendous passion, and is driven to make PIxability a success. They care for their employees and treat them well. Constant communication of objectives. Very positive work environment. Huge market opportunity as a marketing platform for content marketing on YouTube and still no real competitors. Company is starting to gain substantial traction with big brands. CTO is brilliant, soft spoken, steady and capable of leading any part of the company.

    Cons

    Market has been slow to develop. Company has not been recognized as a hot property by venture community.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep driving.

    I worked at Pixability

    Pros

    Innovative, fast paced, analytical, science driven, next generation company... unbelievably connected to the IT and Marketing world. This is a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Lots of hours (they are a startup) and you have to pay to play (salary will be minimal but the upside is huge)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for the absolute best talent available for each position and find a way to hire them. We spent so much time coddling inferior talent that it cost us much more than if we went the extra yard.

    I have been working at Pixability

    Pros

    Pixability is a company with a very diverse team. People are from very diverse backgrounds, so it is not your typical East coast startup. Be prepared to hear several languages during the day. It is truly a global team. Everyone in the company of 10 (and growing) is a very independent individual willing and able to "move mountains". Organization is run using Agile methodology, so there is a daily review of progress and corrections are made right away. Executives of the company are very easy to talk with and are always open to new ideas, no matter who brings them up. Heck, it is very likely you will be sitting next to one of them. Organization is very heavily metrics-driven. Don't expect to be able to coast.

    Cons

    No matter how heavy of the effort executives are putting into trying to put in work/life balance, some members of the team do end up pulling some heavy hours. Such is start-up life.
    Compensation is also on the lower end, but again, that is the reality of Angel-investor funded companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clearer direction on who is responsible for what in the organization to avoid people stepping on each others toes at times.
