    I worked at Brightstar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was a good company two years ago

    Cons

    The company was acquired and it quickly became a train wreck. Founder jumped ship and left his most useless acolytes to run the company, which quickly started getting rid of the few talented employees. I really feel sorry for the few accomplished professionals that are still there.

    Advice to Management

    There's no management, unfortunately.
