    Pros

    they pay you regularly, novel in that they were among the 1st to do video streaming for mobile devices.

    Cons

    much of the company was propped up by H1's who couldn't wait to get out. Some good people there but sr mgnt in serious need of a proctologist. Sweatshop environment. CEO rarely made it into the office. Three or so big customers kept the place solvent.

    try not to be so full of yourselves
