    I worked at ooVoo

    Pros

    Good people to work with. CxO's are honorable and professional. Well funded. Good technology that does work well. Might have changed since I was there but same CEO so assume corporate culture is the same.

    Cons

    Tend to have a fuzzy vision or clouded strategies. A bit of a separation of communication between marketing and sales versus engineering and development.

    I worked at ooVoo full-time

    Pros

    There were a few good people there but they've all either been let go or voluntarily left.

    Cons

    They've changed management several times - 3 different CEOS, 3 different marketing teams. They fire full teams all in one single sweep. They just keep changing the people but continue to have the same problems. The product is and will always be full of bugs. There is no cohesion between US/Israel offices, it's always "us vs. them." It's a miracle this place is still in business and the only reason they are is because one man owns the company and throws money into it. There is absolutely no sense of culture there. It was seriously one of the worst places I've ever worked and I don't miss it for a second.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask yourselves why you are still in business? Nobody has ever heard of ooVoo, nobody cares about it and nobody ever will. It's a sinking ship and you're on it.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay for work load

    Cons

    Company has no idea what to do with product, countless of changes in upper management, application/product is not reliable, poor developers and product management, a US and Israeli company that works like two independent companies. Preference given for Jewish employees. Just a confusing place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop paying all these high dollar salaries and consultants. Start with Israel and get some decent programmers and a better product team because your app has a boatload of design issues. You can't place new UI over a bunch of crap. Your product needs to work!!

    I worked at ooVoo full-time

    Pros

    Salary and people. Some career opportunities

    Cons

    Bad management... for years. The management has no direction. Cutting losses by cutting manpower - and wrong one - there are much better candidates to lose then those who left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace yourself. Don't try to fix your mistakes on the expense of others. STOP flying overseas every other week! This is a video conferencing company! Use your own product and stop wasting money!
