Positive Outlook

I worked at Ooyala full-time (More than a year)

Pros

+ Engineers are super smart.
+ Work with top open source technologies
+ Easy to do impact and to propose something new and get it going.
+ Really good Massive Datasets team. Great data mining infrastructure and machine learning.
+ Almost every engineer get to work on the entire stack (UI all the way to the backend and storing data on distributed file systems)
+ Applies scrum very effectively, making engineers highly exposed to every project executed by the team.

Cons

+ Management gets employee reviews one way (only cares about what higher people of the people underneath them, never the other way around).
+ Some teams keep beautiful code, others have hard-to-follow and understand code.
+ No dedicated team providing good infrastructure. Engineers have to do tedious work a good chunk of the time

    Pros

    Food catering and sushi on Thursdays. Transparency between management and lack of egos going around. Hardworking and fun atmosphere.

    Cons

    Team is still growing and positions often filled by others to do the role they are not best suited for.
