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

    Pros

    Exciting to be a part of such a fast-growing company
    Lots of opportunity to take on more responsibilities and take ownership of projects
    True meritocracy where hard work is recognized and rewarded
    Very transparent: execs regularly give company updates on performance, goals, etc

    Cons

    Location is inconvenient for those commuting on Caltrain
    Office space is reshuffled fairly often because of the fast growth
    Flat hierarchy can be confusing - execs are in charge of too much which can slow things down

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to add more managers to speed up things internally

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

    Pros

    When I consider joining a new company, I have a few boxes I need to check first:
    -Technology: the best in the market against competitors?
    -Culture: work hard/play hard, can I hang around these people 8 hours a day?
    -Company Growth: what VCs invested, how much and what round?
    -Career Growth: if I crush it, can I move up the ranks?
    -Management: can I learn from the person who's managing me?

    BrightEdge checked all those boxes for me. I've been here for over a year now and those boxes are still checked, plus a few more.

    BrightEdge is about the 'athlete mentality'; if you work fast and smart you'll get noticed. On the same token, that athlete mentality comes along with the comradery. Everyone, even c-level, are here to help you if you ask for it.

    BrightEdge is in a great place right now. We're a late stage startup with over 9000 clients and growing everyday. We're solving a need in the market and it feels good to contribute to that.

    Cons

    I don't really have any cons, the only thing I would say is that BrightEdge is not for you if you don't like to work fast and smart.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love the executive support when I need it. Keep innovating, staying ahead of the competition and solving that need.

    "Great Work Environment - Fun, Energetic and Inspiring"

    I have been working at Brightedge Technologies full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I absolutely love being a part of BrightEdge! I have worked at all types and sizes of companies in Silicon Valley and I can honestly say this is my most fun, challenging and rewarding company to date. The leadership team is not only committed to the company's' success - which as a shareholder in a pre-IPO company is important - but also to our employee's success. It is incredible that we have a great training program for new / recent grads to come in and learn the business in sales, client services and engineering, and provide them a clear career path for promotion. Our philosophy of promoting from within is unheard of for companies our size (300 employees to date). I work long hours (by choice not by demand) and everyday It amazes me how fast the day goes by, because we are moving at such a fast clip.

    One thing to note - this is a company where you control your own success - if you are a go-getter, driven to succeed, are truly a team player and are open to learning every day - then this is a great place for you! I am so happy that I am here and that BrightEdge has given me such a great opportunity!

    Cons

    My only con is I wish we had more catered lunches, other than Friday. Don't get me wrong - I love the free lunches on Friday and all the snacks, but it would be great to have food brought in a few days a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing! Culture starts at the top, and I am proud to be in a role where I can make a difference and influence change where needed and reinforce the great drive, culture and rewards provided to every employee.

    Pros

    Bright Edge has separated itself from other companies from the start! You will not be thrown into a sink or swim environment. The interview process guarantees that you are/are not qualified for the position that you are applying for. Once you are hired, your first week is an over view of the industry as well as the company and its platform. The in-depth training and time spent on the material sets every employee up to succeed. In your second week, you will train for your exact position. It is rare that a company spends so much effort into training.

    Not only is training world-class, but the opportunity for career growth and money are there! Base salary and OTE is higher than most companies in the industry. The platform is industry leading.

    Cons

    If you are not a quick learner, you can get lost in training. If you do no work hard, don't enjoy fast-paced growth learning environments, you should not apply.

    The company has been through growing pains and some "pains" have taken longer to address, but the team is moving in the right direction.

    Pros

    Brightedge is a fast paced, innovative company with great technology. It is a great opportunity for someone looking to succeed in a well funded start-up environment. Great compensation package with aggressive but attainable goals. The management team is 100% dedicated to your success as a rep and will arm you with all the tools to win. The Chicago office is growing with great people and it is rewarding to work everyday alongside smart, innovative colleagues.

    Cons

    Fast paced and aggressive cadence to sales cycle is not for everyone- however I do not view this as a con. Brightedge is making a big splash in the market and expect the reps to perform on a monthly basis. While this is not for everyone, the AE's that come in and work hard everyday are rewarded very well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing and hiring great people. It is really exciting to grow and win with the company.

    BrightEdge is continuously providing the best technology in the market. I am learning a lot here and feedback is consistent. Honestly, you get the amount you put in and in my opinion all the negative reviews are the ones who didn't make it.

    Cons

    Working the day before the holidays.
