    I worked at Viki full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, atmosphere, friendly people

    Cons

    Some managers were great, but it felt like some of the other people in management were B or C list people who didn't know what they were doing but were just bluffing their way through everything.

    I have been working at Viki

    Pros

    People are friendly, work hours are flexible (have to be - everyone there need to work in Singapore/Korea hours as well as US Pacific time). Very relaxed, fun and loving culture. Good for new graduates.

    Cons

    Friendly, but weak leadership. Makes everyone wonder if the executives have a direction.

    Pros

    Viki has some of the smartest and passionate people I've ever met. Even though the company is lean, people are willing to roll up their sleeves to help one another out. People are friendly and open to sharing their wealth of knowledge with you so you'll have the opportunity to learn alot. The challenge that Viki is tackling is challenging and unique. At times, it's not easy to see where everything is headed. Viki is still in the midst of defining a strong culture and identity and it still feels like a startup with a culture distinct from it's parent company - Rakuten. There is generally a positive attitude towards failure and learning from it. The company is growing and growing pains are inevitable. The problems faced are not insurmountable but will require the team to work through it together. Keep trying and we'll get there.

    Cons

    Distributed offices across different countries and timezones means it's challenging to work closely and align all the time.

    I worked at Viki for less than a year

    Pros

    Good environment as the people are friendly. The pantry is nice filled with lota of food. The engineers are talented people from across the globe, it's quite insightful when talking with them.

    Cons

    More structured program for the interns, rather than jumping straight to production level.
