    I worked at Quixey

    Pros

    Coworkers are very intelligent, helpful and fun to work with. There were a lot of perks too; Food in the cafeteria, gym access and even time with a personal trainer and much more

    Cons

    Not anything that will apply to everyone. However the open office approach is not for everyone, especially if you are easily distracted

    I worked at Quixey full-time

    Pros

    Quixey has taken on a big problem with mobile search. There is a big market for their product and substantial revenue potential

    Cons

    The product has been late to market and Google (among other competitors) have closed the product gap that Quixey hoped to fill

    I worked at Quixey full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Grand company picnic, lots of free food, hordes of t-shirts, insanely high compensation and a very very nice office build in the heart of mountain view

    Cons

    If what you mean by Con is the same as I am thinking then Yes this company is DEFINITELY a 'con' for everyone who put their money into it. Otherwise, the biggest con of working here is that you would never be able to spin any positive story in future job interviews.

    Some free food left, but everything had been cut. Good T-Shirt

    "Nepotism"

    I have been working at Quixey

    Pros

    Free lunch and benefits. Good location - close to public transportation and Mountain View downtown.

    Cons

    Nepotism - you have to be a personal friend of the founder to get anywhere. The company is bloated (250+ employees) and low yearly revenue (<$25 million). Too many executives and excess fat in people operations. The company is in it’s 7th year, burnt $130 million of funding and zero major customers for their core product.

    Pros

    Intelligent and enthusiastic coworkers. Solid learning opportunities. A lot of self management. Great location for commuters.

    Cons

    Lack of general management. Vision seems blurred. Too much pivoting. Eventually going in circles. Nepotism is real here, while its not terrible, its noticeable.
