I have been working at blinkx full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Being able to speak to anyone at anytime is great. If there is ever a problem everybody is available to solve the problem quickly. The office is like my extended family and most employes have been here for over 5 years. We have a fully stocked kitchen and great insurance.

Cons

401k could be improved with Blinkx matching a certain percentage.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More comfortable chairs and a dishwasher would be great.

    I have been working at blinkx full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are very few companies where you never have to worry about bureaucracy. The new hire who is just learning the space has a voice at the same table as the CEO. There is never a dull moment and you are constantly challenged by your peers, your superiors, and internally. There is a reason why most of the employees have been here for years. At Blinkx we are more like a family and each of us take pride in adding to the success of this great company.

    Cons

    This job requires you to always be on top of your job. The internet never shuts down and neither do we.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More comfortable chairs.

    Opportunity to learn/grow
    Free food on Fridays and nice office
    When the share price was right-high value options

    Cons

    When the share price is low options were NOT valuable!
    Chaotic management style in engineering
    lots of projects and changes to projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to let engineers work on their projects for longer so the product can be better
