    I have been working at TokBox full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Tokbox cares about it's people. The company understands work-life balance and when people are happy, they produce good work and products. The nature of Tokbox culture is caring about what you create and do, having a strong moral compass, being intelligent and making sound decisions. With that said, Tokbox hires intelligent, team oriented, and goal driven people that fit the mold. I give Tokbox 125% because they invest in and care about me in return. There is room for creativity, hard work, humor, humanity, success, and failures in order to grow and succeed. Also, lunch is included, we like to hang out together, the pay is competitive, and benefits are great.

    Cons

    Growing pains are present, best to go with the flow.

    I worked at TokBox full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been Tokbox for over 3 years. Tokbox is a great place to work and the office environment is really family based. Everyone is like a family member. As an individual contributor, we have flexibility to choose our own project. We also got free snacks, fruits, milk and free lunch. I will definitely my friends to work for Tokbox and we have great leading edge technology so people can learn more stuff too.

    Cons

    Not too much meat dishes for lunch. But its free so no complains.

    Advice to Management

    I personally has a good relationship with our CEO, he is hard working, and visionary. Tokbox will be a top company with the management teams leadership.

    Pros

    Great perks. Purchased by a huge company. Decisions are made in an effort to make a good business, not to affect the next round.

    Cons

    WebRTC is very inexpensive for the end customers. Difficult to ramp up huge revenues. Newer technology. Big companies like to run pilots and POC's.

    Advice to Management

    Press on. Spend a little more on marketing and SEO. Expect a little more out of each employee. Be more transparent about the direction of the company.

    I have been working at TokBox (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Very relaxed environment. Micromanaging is not a thing here.
    - Career growth opportunities are possible. Management cares about where you want to go in your career, not only what TokBox needs from you. Very supportive in that way.
    - People are respectful and care about one another like a family.
    - Low on politics. There are some, but it's not like I've seen at other companies.
    - Ability to choose the types of projects you are most interested in. Things aren't just assigned to you. You preference matters.
    - Engineering driven, which is good if you're an engineer.
    - Very smart passionate coworkers.
    - Free lunch and it's delicious.
    - Free work phone
    - Nice health benefits and perks

    Cons

    - Communication between departments could be improved.
    - Collaboration could be better between teams who are one their own islands working on their own projects. Some missed opportunities occur when people work siloed. This is being worked on though.
    - Company future is a bit ambiguous. In tech things are always changing.
    - Owned by Telefonica so a bit of big brother stuff, but not terrible.
    - Engineering driven, which can be challenging for less technical employees.

    Advice to Management

    - Could be a little more transparent about direction of the company.
    - CEO could spend more time building relationships with employees.
    - As the company evolves work hard not to lose the culture employees love so much.

    It's part of Telefonica and nobody knows what the future holds.

    Not much to say here... Sometimes work could be slow. Selling the business can be a challenge at times.
