      Pros

      - BitSight created the security ratings market in 2011 and owns a significant amount of the market share. Much like credit scores help determine financial risk, BitSight helps determine risk related to security posture. If you understand security & where the market is going you'll understand why there's a tremendous opportunity here. - Good people, stocked kitchen, coffee/espresso machines, lunch on Fridays, no...

      I had a great time at BitSight and grew immensely as an engineer there. The leadership and teams are extremely talented and focused on being the leaders in the market.

      Cons

      -The Raleigh office is small and could use some more love. -With the company rapidly growing, they need to update their bonus and 401k structure.

      Advice to Management

      The Raleigh office is talented; keep investing and making sure remote teams have more face-to-face time with headquarters and their teams.

      So far, this is the best company (from products, leadership, market potential, compensation plans) that I have ever worked for and feel extremely fortunate.

      Pros

      BitSight is a breath of fresh air. The people are extremely talented and driven and there's a lack of ego across the board. The management team listens to its employees and makes changes when there are things that need improvement. There's a lot of opportunity here for the company as we lead the security ratings market but there's also a lot of opportunity for personal growth within the company if you're up for taking...

      Cons

      As we grow so much and so quickly, there are a lot of process/collaboration issues we need to figure out. I'm confident we'll get there but, in the meantime, we're dealing with those growing pains.

      Advice to Management

      Keep communicating as you are and focus on getting alignment across functions and lines of business. As we grow, make sure that corporate policies and BitSight values are clear to everyone.
