Pros

Interesting product, always intriguing to potential clients. Fairly good benefits as well as good technology and hardware provided to employees.

Cons

Management is totally clueless. They are unresponsive unless they need something. There is a total lack of respect for employees, who are frequently verbally chewed out and insulted in the presence of everyone else. There is no sales strategy and very little support. Management is unwilling to accept feedback because it's apparent that any suggestions are viewed as a judgement on their performance. Instead of offering positive support or suggestion, management responds to questions and feedback with the "you're not doing your job properly" response. Unwilling to accept that products are priced in a totally unrealistic manner with respect to the rest of the industry.

Advice to Management

Give people a chance to be successful. Respect your employees, as they're people. not drones to be controlled. Accept feedback and criticism from salespeople and use it to better the company instead of replying with insults clearly based on insecurity. Hire management with sales experience that also live in this continent...not South America.

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

    Pros

    The people were great, the offices in Montreal were very nice.

    Cons

    Very unorganized, the IT department had no clear goals so it was a little messy to work there.

    "Waste Management"

    Pros

    Whilst the company appeared to have a solid team that worked hard, the underlying waste management situation was always in jeopardy. Lower level management supported their employees for the most part, however, senior management were clueless to the massive pitfalls of the technology and the dangers to waste management. Great snacks were available at all times, as was access to Marketplace which was good for team morale. I believe this is what kept the ship sailing for so long, as well as the ample amounts of my fellow waste management compatriots.

    Cons

    I will always remember that fateful day, it was where everything changed in a instant. The underlying tech issues caused a campaign to fail and produce outburst that will never be forgotten. The waste management situation was destroyed.

    Advice to Management

    Bins are for life, you hit, we hurt.
