    I have been working at blinkx full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues. Great vision. A good, professional vibe. Right now I think I have a feeling that the stars are beginning to align and we're becoming a "normal" company.

    Cons

    A increasing feeling of disconnect from the product. I know the site is being redone, but it's taken forever to even acknowledge that it needed to happen. There is also silo-ization of the group by acquisition and product set. True, this could be overcome by the upcoming intranet, but it's a late and an internet was available through the Zango acquisition. It was sneered at.

    Advice to Management

    It seems like most of the things that I think should happen are in the works. So I guess it's all about execution at this point.
