    I have been working at Brightedge Technologies full-time (more than an year)


    I came to BrightEdge to get myself into tech sales. Knew there were some unhappy posts about the past, but it seemed like somewhere to could get into, get trained and learn a ton. I've heard plenty of stories about the recent past, but was pleasantly shocked by how intellegent my peers were and the training, both boot camp and third-party is awesome. I know without the shadow of a doubt that my experience here has prepared me for anything I will see moving forward. I definitely was not coming for easy and it has paid off.
    Once I got ramped up, which took about 3 months, the money is awesome for a first year role. Also, it's a tough stretch, but the fact that I can legitimately get into a closing role capable of making a ton more money within a year and a half is well above anywhere else that I know of.


    There is pressure to perform here because we work on such a fast pace (weekly and monthly metrics/KPIs). If you're looking to clock in and out every day with little thought to in between, it's not going to be enjoyable for you. If you believe that it's worthwhile to push yourself on a daily basis, then absolutely worthwhile. It will probably be one of the tougher places you'll work, but you'll learn at the same rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management definitely doesn't value perks like some of the other valley shops do. This would help during the rougher hours or days (when people just don't seem to be picking up the phone, etc), but i'll trade free lunch for knowing exactly what I have to do to move myself up any day.

    3 stages. First round was a quick 15 min screen asking why sales and why Brightedge. Second round was a 30 min call asking similar questions. Final round they asked me to put on a 30 min presentation about a technology of my choosing. They really want you to approach it with a sales mindset and be trying to close the hiring manager the entire time.
