    I worked at Brainshark full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The culture is really great. People are smart, kind, and fun to hang out with. All managers and senior level are very approachable. Even as the company grows, hard workers and contributors can really make a difference. Though I've read that it may not have been so in the past, as of late, creativity and new ideas are definitely encouraged - not always enacted, but given fair consideration. For younger employees, it's an absolutely fantastic place to learn and launch a career.

    Cons

    If there are any, they would probably have to do with the company's quick growth. Communication breaks down from time to time and things become a little bit more bureaucratic. As the crowd gets bigger, it becomes a little easier to get lost in it - but none of this is any different than any company on a growth spurt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ultimately, keep it up. Keep getting people excited. Keep encouraging new ideas and keep letting the characters be themselves. Though more bureaucracy is inevitable, do your best to minimize it so people don't get any more bogged down than they need to be.
