      I have been working at TokBox full-time (Less than a year)

      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.
