    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.

    There's growth within the company. Everyone here are really friendly and willing to help one another. Since this is a start-up environment, you will have many opportunities to work with different team in this company

    Cons

    check in weekly with the employee would be nice

    Advice to Management

    keep up the monthly meeting to let employees know what this company have achieved the past month

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Everyone is extremely nice, and more than willing to walk me through their areas of expertise or give me a hand in an area i am unsure in. . The general attitude of all the employees is very positive and everyone seems very energetic. Management is very intelligent and seems committed to expanding the company. The company is also expanding rapidly.

    They also provide free snacks/beverages and do a staff lunch every Thursday which is generous of them.

    Cons

    Other than having to do the occasional intern duties (running basic errands, faxing, etc.), and some occasional connectivity problems with wifi nothing really comes to mind.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the VGA cable in the conference room.

    Not Great, but Not Bad

    I have been working at blinkx

    Pros

    There was a flexible schedule and independence. Vacation wasn't too bad either and you do learn a lot.

    Cons

    Not great people to work with, not very professional and the staff is very green and junior. Many have bad attitude and there's a lot of racial discrimination. Not a good environment to work in.

    Advice to Management

    Look into your Montreal office...Lot of shady business dealings there.
