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

    Pros

    Great working environment with flexible work life balance, which is good for my family life. Good pay and benefits. I really feel part of the team, and it was clear my work is appreciated and my hard efforts do go rewarded.

    I have found my team leaders/management to be both responsive and helpful. So am not sure why so many reviews here are so negative.

    Blinkx has many exciting products and is being well lead by senior management (even if the current mood of investors is very negative towards the company, it is not so for those of us working here).

    Cons

    Expect employees to work hard. So if this is not you then you may find life hard.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. I expect our hard work will bear fruit shortly.

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

    Pros

    Great near future possibilities for us employees. There is a certain buzz around the office with Yahoo in takeover discussions with our parent company Blinkx PLC. The possibilities will be endless if as expected Yahoo buys Blinkx.

    Cons

    Long hours work life balance are a little tricky sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Share more with staff and more regular updates. Stock options for Blinkx would be nice.

    I have been working at blinkx full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A very fast and growing company with very clear focus and targets. Amazing product line and colleagues watch this space grab media is going to be huge and I am exited to be a part of it's future.

    Cons

    Because grab is growing so fast we may be taken over by someone like yahoo or WPP which can provide some uncertainty.

    Advice to Management

    Continue providing staff clear targets

    Pros

    there's a lot of ears open when you voice your opinion. You have the freedom to really branch out and take on whatever role you'd like to take. If you have initiative, you can pull in other employees from other departments or divisions to really make a difference..

    Cons

    The industry is very fast face and ever changing. Sometimes it's difficult to keep up with all the changes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking out for the A players who are looking to take on more, and make sure they're recognized and noticed for their contributions.

    Great place to work! Everyone really has a sense of ownership and direction, and the company embraces this work ethic. Lots of opportunity if one has the drive.

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

    Pros

    I have worked at blinkx for almost three years now. I have learned so much and really advanced in my career. You can make the position your own and take on new projects, as the company has grown a lot in the past few years. You work with people from multiple offices and continue to learn new things every day.

    Cons

    The challenge of working at blinkx is keeping self-motivated. You are not micro-managed and you must be proactive at all times.

    Advice to Management

    I trust the senior leadership team is continuously working to make blinkx a better business ! I love working with a team that challenges me and helps me grow.

    Pros

    Good compensation, good benefits, flexible hours and good opportunities for advancement. Overall a very good place to work.

    Cons

    More collaboration between divisions would be helpful.

    Advice to Management

    One of Blinkx's great strength is the diversity of its divisions, we should try to leverage that more and take advantage of each others skills and technologies.
