I have been working at Bridgeline Digital full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Dynamic group of driven individuals who seemingly want the best for their Customers. Sales, R&D, iAPPS Support Group (iSG); Marketing; Finance; and Legal work together to create a symbiotic relationship that helps drive business.

Cons

Admittedly, there has been turnover which can affect morale, but most were underperformers. I would take most if not all the reviews post Jan 2014 with a grain of salt.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Execute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the CEO, he is the reason many talented individuals leave. His management style is demeaning and abusive. He does not respect the other executives or the managers that face customers on a daily basis. I have witnessed customers and employees leave Bridgeline due to his arrogance.

    Pros

    Promising product.
    When done correctly, delivery team can make some great sites when they aren't being over utilized.

    Cons

    The company seems to change direction more than a drunk doing a dizzy bat race. Between growth by acquisition and constant refocusing of the product, the company culture is fragmented and the solution is half-baked.

    Instead of having a consistent road map for the software, it always seems to be "what's the next thing that can add to the top line". Unfortunately this means that the core products are left to wither on the vine, which allows competitors to overtake functionality, while delivery has their hands tied to half-finished products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop chasing the next shiny promise like a kid with ADD. Create a true roadmap for the next few releases, based on customer feedback and market demand.

    The constant focus on revenue is prohibitive to the growth opportunities of the company. Go private or take a loss for a quarter to right the ship. The last thing the company needs is more sales people.
