    Pros

    solid team, very international, unique product

    Cons

    needs more product and business focus, better internal communication

    Advice to Management

    I think common issues at most companies are magnified at Viki because it's a small team in four different offices. I can see that things have been moving in the right direction, especially over the last six months, with more rigorous decision making and some great recent hires. Last year there were some people who were fired for under-performance. It looks like the first negative review was made by someone in this group.

    I have been working at Viki full-time

    Pros

    Very smart product with a super active community.

    Cons

    Biggest con in one word: Management.

    No strong leadership or vision leads to poor communication across all teams and a terrible company culture. Focus seems to be on hiring cheaper staff in Singapore office rather than quality staff in the US.

    Difficult to have a good work/life balance with teams and offices 16 hours apart.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on stronger communication with employees, but particularly within management itself.
