    Pros

    In a landscape of crazy tech boom schemes, TokBox stands out as a uniquely solid sensible technology with useful universal application. This sensibility is reflected in the people, the culture, and the feel of the company. It's great. One of the best work situations I've ever had.

    Cons

    There is no options package to plant your dreams in. There are technology risks (WebRTC is still fledgling) and competitive risks (lots of players in the field).

    Advice to Management

    As we grow, I would love to see us stay true to the basic values that make this group excellent. We should become sharper, and more effective without resorting to the usual revenue-oriented craziness of the startup world. Creating and supporting a good useful product is a very worthy achievement.

    Pros

    - Great team of motivated individuals - Growing business and constantly developing platform - Excellent benefits and flexible work culture - Committed leadership - Backed up by a huge company like Telefonica creates a nice cushion

    Cons

    - Uncertainty of future direction. Telefonica owns our future and things can change directions even if results are good. - Excessive deal driven development.

    Pros

    Really fun, collaborative people. People are really friendly and always ready to help out. Ping Pong table is a great place for people to build relations. Great perks (catered lunches, free snacks, subsidized iPhones, 20 days of PTO, 9 sick days..etc)

    Cons

    It's part of Telefonica and nobody knows what the future holds.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and maintain the awesome company culture.

    No negatives come to mind at the moment, though there were some complaints about how new ideas and collaboration was hard to come by.
