      Pros

      Great people who somehow keep being tricked into working here

      Cons

      Pros

      - Flexible working hours - Opportunity to get promoted - Free food, drinks etc - Good colleagues

      Cons

      - Too many changes. Sold OVP and ad tech business and there is not much left of the company - They are living of what they did 10 years ago - Approximately fired 50% of their employees the last two years - Wouldn't be surprised to see the remainder of Ooyala being sold cheaply so the management team can get out - Not a good top-down mindset - People are afraid to speak up in case they get fired

      More cons than pros

      Pros

      - Talented and friendly co-workers - Nice friendly atmosphere amongst the ordinary staff

      Cons

      - Lack of vision or direction for the product - Lack of transparency from management about company performance or what is coming down the pipeline - Constant reorganisations and restructuring creates a chaotic and stressful work environment - Decision makers say one thing and then do the opposite - The people doing the all the hard work never get the recognition
