Benefits, pay and ability to contribute to a thriving start up are all great parts of working at BrightEdge. Awesome environment!Cons
Lead, follow or get out of the way. If you aren't prepared to contribute and pull your weight, BrightEdge isn't for you. There is no room for those looking to sit back and just earn a paycheck. Work life balance is a bit off, but it's going to be that way for any fast moving startup.Advice to ManagementAdvice
A few kinks to be worked out operationally being a startup focused on growth, more efficient processes could be developed but I"m sure those are in the works and will only get better.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
