No real negatives come to mind. The development pace can be challenging at times but it is rerely boring.

    Pros

    Friday lunch, free pop and espresso.
    Good benefits.

    Cons

    Mid-level Management is poor.
    Not a lot of opportunites here unless you are in development.
    Culture is over-hyped. They think they are so stringent on hiring processes, but really they have some people there that are not very good and middle-management does nothing about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mid-level management needs some people-skills improvement.

    I worked at TechSmith full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    TechSmith has a lot of great people with a desire to do great things. A lot of effort is put into fostering a culture of fun and work/life balance. The company makes an effort to provide tools needed for your job. They are not afraid to invest in new ideas.

    Cons

    The company is not quite sure what it wants. It's good that everyone is allowed to voice their opinions but it is bad when a single opinion can derail the whole process. A lot of change has happened in mid and upper management that consists of bringing in friends of managers that do not understand the industry or tech culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Collect yourselves and focus your vision. Don't be afraid to remove some dead weight and reward the contributors.
