    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    I could have stared out the window for hours.

    Cons

    I couldn't wait to jump out that window.

    It's amazing that you can find some of the most despicable people in the industry, lump them together, and put them at the helm of a software company. There is absolutely no upside working for blinkx. The CTO is inept and has no management skills. The CMO keeps the fake hype floating, the COO isn't afraid to show preference certain folks, and don't get me started on the CEO. Wow, he needs to go to therapy to fix his feelings of inadequacy.

    Advice to Management

    Take some business and management courses at the local community college.
