    Pros

    Great people, great clients, smart colleagues, and amazing innovation. People are very hardworking and dedicated, lots of amazing talent.

    Cons

    People who have limited experience are doing the job, and a constant learning curve. Executive management busier then anyone, reluctant to empower employees, and thus things are slow to change. Many looking for new jobs.

    I have been working at Kaltura full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Very collaborative environment and culture, people will always help each other and there are plenty of social interactions outside of work (karaoke seems to be the favorite social activity) - Flexibility to work remotely dramatically improves work-life balance. No such thing as "face time", you are managed by what you do, not by how much time you spend in the office - The company is still nimble, so each role's responsibilities go beyond what traditionally such role would be responsible for in a larger firm = opportunities to learn outside your traditional day to day responsibilities - Online video is a hot industry, so it feels like the company's products are shaping online trends. - Most people take pride in what they do and in the company. They refer to themselves as "Kalturians" - Rapidly entering new markets or developing new products, so it keeps things interesting

    Cons

    - The company is growing fast so some processes that you would normally see in larger companies are yet to be implemented or need to improve. - Hours are long, there is always more work than one can handle

    Advice to Management

    More focus on building internal processes that will scale through the company growth. Invest in middle management.

    I worked at Kaltura full-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, the ability to work remote from other offices, and travel opportunities - but don't expect anything above a 3 star hotel!

    Cons

    -flexible schedule drives expectations of being available 24/7 (literally) -constant disrespect from peers and senior management, no communication skills -no customer success (account management has their own quota aside from sales) -little to no process around everything -Most management has zero experience of management -a manager once said to my co-worker "I could go outside and find someone off the street that could do a better job than you" -business decisions are made on impulsion and emotion -Egos -Expenses are limited when traveling

    Advice to Management

    Don't be ignorant to what the market says, your employees, and most importantly your customer needs.

    I have been working at Kaltura full-time

    Pros

    fair compensation, lots of travel, large opportunity in the space, massive scale. Opportunities to work with large international clients on large complex projects.

    Cons

    long working hours, cultural differences across the organization, tech center is out of Israel, there can be challenges in scheduling meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more direct project responsibility, maybe less middle layers, don't lose the startup spirit, that is in risk with company growth. Grow to handle demand to avoid stretching some people too thin.

    Pros

    Right place and right time to be at Kaltura! Company is invested in many portions of the video market place and is on a rocketship to grow. With growth comes challenges and steering a multi-headed / pronged company is not without natural distractions. If you can allow yourself to come up for air and see the 10,000 foot few, this is a place that makes peoples careers as all employees are given freedom to go and do, lead and address problems head on.

    Cons

    Culture still figuring itself out. As the company has grown its gone through various stages of engagement and focus on the staff. There has been an impressive put to get personally engaged with all team members over last year and the culture is forming and being shaped as a kick a%splace to work.
