I worked at TechSmith as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Great culture, skilled yet down to earth developers, opportunities for growth

Cons

Growing pains, management somewhat disconnected

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep it up guys, you're doing fantastic. I loved my summer at TechSmith, and would love to come back when I finish school. There are currently some growing pains as the company moves forward into new technologies, but they are necessary and TSC will be better for it down the road. I feel good about the company's future overall.

    I worked at TechSmith as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    As a intern I had a lot of great mentors to teach and rely on while working on real projects that impacted the company. It was a great place to be

    Cons

    Given the size of the company besides the company activities the workplace can feel quite isolated between teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very top level style management. Never really interacted with the higher ups.

    I worked at TechSmith full-time

    Pros

    - Culture was great
    - Smart and talented people who work there
    - Lots of company-wide activities
    - Easy to talk with (most) of the higher ups directly

    Cons

    - Lacking in paths of advancement
    - If you are lucky in that you do advance and are given a new title, it often does not come with a raise or incentive for begin responsible for more work
    - Conflicting management types- one that operates 'open door' and one that operates 'speak to your manager who will speak to their manager who will speak to their VP'
    - Keeping people with negative attitudes around and having them affect the culture in a bad way, encouraging more of that same behavior

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Software development is risky, the slower you are to the market, especially now, the more behind you get. Make decisions and be okay with failing, learning, and moving on. Keep the open door policy extended through the entire company. It is absolutely asinine to have to talk to 3 different people instead of just going to the one person you would've liked to talk with in the first place.
