Pros

Hot space
Interesting technology
Good buzz in industry

Cons

Poor execution on products
Terrible treatment of employees
Poor communication- starting at management
Bogus PR: papering the industry with meaningless press releases
Lack of support, yet all the obligations on accomplishing things

Advice to Management

It's time to clean house at the management level at blinkx, I don't think any reputable person who can contact people via sites like this or social networks will take a job at blinkx unless they are desperate.

    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.
