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

    Pros

    * google culture from the founders down through the rank. everyone gives 110% and it shows.
    * massive company success in the market.

    Cons

    * boys club. after a decade of silicon valley, now i know what hostility to women looks like, from execs and founders to vps and leads to individual contributors.
    * ooyala loves to fire people. one a month.
    * too many managers. it's like office space - 2 or 3 managers is the norm.
    * there is absolutely no support for career growth or for working reasonable hours.

    Advice to Management

    the culture of fear isn't worth it.
