Featured Review

Current Employee - Automation Manager

I have been working at IBM full-time

Pros

Diversity investment on skills Collaboration Agile Innovative Focus on IT

Cons

Sometimes old management style gets in the way

Former Employee - Art Director

I worked at BrightWave full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

BrightWave had an amazing "family" culture. It was the nicest agency I've ever worked for. The collaboration and teamwork were out of this world!

Cons

BrightWave also had some of the cattiest / gossipy employees—which, includes management. People were afraid of confrontation and simply talking to one another.

Advice to Management

You should have kept BrightWave instead of selling to Ansira. We had something special, but it's gone now. You sold out.
