Positive Outlook

I have been working at Fiksu full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Smart, smart, smart people. This is the #1 reason I went to work there and the #1 reason I stay. I want to work with people I learn from every day.

Cons

Its a startup, so it comes with a bit of the unpolished edges, but on-par everything is going in the right direction.

    Pros

    Fiksu provides excellent opportunities for advancement and creative input. As a rapidly growing start-up company in the red hot mobile advertising space, Fiksu is an exciting place to work.

    Cons

    Starting compensation for entry level employees is somewhat on the low side. A 401K plan is provided but without a company match.

    I worked at Fiksu full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Paycheck at most. Company owned by a corrupt PE firm that views sales and engineering as an ordinary function of business and assumes the same Ukrainian business practices, standards and compensation should be applied to US employees. Compensation plans are a moving target so good luck anticipating any benefit from providing value to a company that has extremely shady entities scattered throughout eastern Europe. Only source of generating revenue is through the sale of office furniture and various assets to cover their losses. There are amazing people that have kept this popsicle stand afloat and yet big brother Sputnik wants to collect his coins like Ebineezer Scrooge and go for the quick flip. If you are a US entity stay away from these shady investors who view the good day to day people as nothing more than ants. Take a deeper look at the dating site they operate throughout Europe if you truly want to get a sense for how this place is structured. As Liam Neeson said in "Taken," Good Luck.

    Cons

    Everything. Should be illegal for a company to accept customer investments to run marketing campaigns that are proven to NOT work. The product and service has completely flat lined and yet the company is being asked to do even more with a flat tire, blown engine and no steering wheel.

    Advice to Management

    Make America Great Again and do not join Fiksu or Noosphere which has some interesting dating sites associated with their operating entities.
