Pros

I will say this for BrightEdge, they do a fabulous job recruiting cool, talented, intelligent people. Their marketing machine is powerful.

Cons

Read the following review with the knowledge that when I started at BrightEdge the CMO asked me to write a favorable review on my first day, which I naively did. Now reading the other positive reviews they strike me as quite similar to my own early, misleading review. Although the people are incredible, the executives set the tone and culture for the company which is why BrightEdge has horrible and ongoing problems with employee attrition, internal unrest and dissatisfaction. It seemed like the entry level people had it the hardest and were treated the worst, but even mid-level executives were struggling with the culture shock and difficulty of maintaining a healthy work life. Transparency and fairness were HUGELY lacking. I can see this with greater perspective now that I'm out of the BrightEdge Marketing Distortion Field, but employees are consistently mislead and even lied to. They are even lied to about their own product which causes them to lie during the sales process, whether they know it or not. One comment I see quite often on these boards is that BrightEdge has the best technology. They don't. There are numerous other platforms and SEO technology that best them in many areas. The number one issue with BrightEdge are the 3 top executives who are brazenly driving towards an exit. It's common in Silicon Valley, but not to the extent where it makes everyone around them miserable. They are not a class act.

    Pros

    Great product and management. This is a great opportunity to be part of a great company can grow into a dominant SAAS provider. very flat manage with everyone having a chance to contribute. The technology is the best in SEO and we continue to grow our lead.

    Cons

    Like any start up the work load is heavy. The culture is to take action today. It's not a good place if you are just planning on showing up. You need to be on every day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep continuing to grow and put the process in place to become a dominant SAAS player.

    Pros

    Good SEO training, company invests in employee development, best SEO platform out there, fast-paced, company is growing fast, great happy hours, bright office, kitchen well stocked, companies hires top notch employees, flexible.

    Cons

    Direction for employees in some departments has room for improvement, commute for employees who do not live in San Mateo is a challenge as company has outgrown the parking lot and the office is not near public transportation. The number of stock options allocated to employees who are not VPs are low compared to other valley start-ups.
