    Pros

    Good place for those who don't want to do anything, and happy with industry mediocre paycheck.

    Cons

    Double check everything they tell you on interview. Unbelievably incompetent management. Zero task delegation. No product vision whatsoever. New software and improvements have flatline adoption curve. Heavy rotation, people run like hell from this festering pit, and management is even ashamed to report employees gone. There are some good people that trapped there with acquisitions, but they leave as soon as they can. I couldn't tolerate it anymore and decided to quit.

    Advice to Management

    Company needs a hard reboot.

    I have been working at blinkx full-time

    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.

    Pros

    Great people, start up vibe with corporate resources. As we grow we continue to take on new and challenging projects. Its been an awesome work experience ! Always learning new things and never bored.

    Cons

    You are expected to be "on" and available at all times. However this is rewarded with great company events and outings. Work hard , play hard attitude !

    Advice to Management

    I appreciate our All Hand Meetings keeping all employee's up to date with the business.

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

    Pros

    A few very nice people there, people I respected and wanted to work with.

    Cons

    Worst senior management team (at least from engineering perspective) I've ever worked with. No product vision or direction, tons of micro management. IMO, most of company is made up of C and D players. Very few high performers. My sentiments were not alone, this is a feeling at least some employees I worked with have themselves. Most telling fact, my contact at the company quit the same week I joined. This should have tipped me off that it was not a great place.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes to what's really going on and who is making decisions.

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

    Pros

    It's nice for working your straight eight hours and going home. There isn't much motivation to work extra or contribute more. Your coworkers you work with on a day to day basis are nice.

    Cons

    Blinkx doesn't create anything truly innovative or ground breaking on the tech side. There aren't many perks if at all for working there. This isn't an environment for you if you're looking to learn and grow. There isn't many areas to advance to.

    Advice to Management

    Please talk to your employees and care about them more.

    I have been working at blinkx full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Have been with Blinkx since they acquired us back in 2011, and in that time, the company has expanded, hired, and increased revenue exponentially. I've had the pleasure of working with many others across the other departments/Offices, and there's really a sense of teamwork in most areas here.

    Cons

    There are some minor "corporate" issues that come along with being a publicly traded company, sometimes there could be lack of communication on what may be going on, outside of monthly meetings.

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Small office with a blend of start-up and tech corporate culture emerging. Think flexible with sustainable resources. Plenty of opportunity to have a career and have some fun. Lots of career oriented people at the Company.

    Cons

    There have been growing pains of acquisitions and also growing so quickly over the last two years. Those seem to be behind us and we are recruiting and retaining lots of talented people with ideas and the skill sets to grow blinkx to $1.0 B of revenue annually.

    Advice to Management

    Set up a one on one mentoring program. Hire more recent college graduates. Start an internship program.
