    I worked at Voxox full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing you can't find at any other badly run sweatshop.

    Cons

    On more than one occasion, upper management decided they didn't have enough money to pay everyone their full salaries for 3 months, but still somehow found the money to send themselves on a 3 week vacation to Bali at the same time.

    Advice to Management

    Stop milking unsuspecting investors, and try running a legitimate business for once in your lives- it's not like there isn't a market for the products you purport to care about.

    I worked at Voxox full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are genuinely people who care about what they do. The technology is exciting.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. Horrible financials. Late pay. Awful benefits. Lots of people who are overpaid, redundant and get in the way of progress. Too many people who are friends and have been in business together too long. Worst of all, ownership is really shady.

    Advice to Management

    You need to fire 1/2 of the remaining employees, stop taking investment money, and focus on a path to profitability with Cloud Phone.

    Pros

    Employees of the company are nice, as is usually the case.

    Cons

    Poor management with little experience running a technology company, particularly the CEO and CTO.

    Advice to Management

    Yes this is your business, but what's best for the employees must coincide with what's best for the company.

    Pros

    Free beer in the office.

    Cons

    I have worked for many different companies of all sizes and in different stages of their life cycle. Voxox has to take the cake for being the most unprofessional and demoralizing company I have ever set foot in. I am not sure if it was just my group or others, but what I felt as an employee at Voxox was that there was nothing but disrespect. I felt that there was no communication, that expectations constantly shifted, and leadership openly practiced nepotism.

    The company comes off as being like a respectful and fun company, but once you walk through through the door you realize that was not mud you just stepped in.

    Advice to Management

    I would restructure your leadership. I would also set some goals that can be used by the various departments so that the teams could craft their own expectations.

    I have been working at Voxox full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hard at work / Hard at Play - flexible schedule, telecommuting options when things at home need tending, ping pong, pool table, tv, netflix, xbox, bagels on Monday, donuts on Wednesday, fruit on Friday, beer on tap, pot lucks, picnics, parties. All the medical, dental & health benefits of a large company! Terrific products that just keep winning awards. Best of all - AWESOME people.

    Cons

    They are growing so fast, it's getting crowded and they are running out of cubicle real estate.

    I worked at Voxox full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice people, friendly environment, flexible

    Cons

    The openly stated long-term goal is to sell the company, unpredictable layoffs, management team (Manager and above) bigger than the core work force. No prospects beyond the existing product which has no significant revenue and financially depends on investors.

    Advice to Management

    More focus towards revenue generation

    I worked at Voxox full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free donuts, free bagels, free coffee, free beer.

    Cons

    The openly stated long-term business plan is to try and sell the company, thus making those stock options you're provided at the start worth something.
    Every few months there are mass layoffs & mandatory steep pay-cuts as funding dries up.
    Only a tiny handful of employees have been present for over a year, and the vast majority of them are director level and above.
    Huge amounts of unpaid overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Stop neglecting your main revenue sources, and help prevent the constant turnover.
