    I have been working at BrightTALK full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Outstanding blue chip customer base and a platform that's adding real value to the world by giving professionals free access to educational presentations by the world's top companies and experts. If you're the kind of person that wants to learn and grow with a company, apply now. There's opportunity to develop new skills and move up quickly.

    Cons

    Working at BrightTALK means you're building a brand and its products and services. That means coming to work every day ready to solve problems, build new processes and create opportunities. That level of ownership isn't for everyone and hiring the right people, especially for entry level positions, can be a challenge.

    I have been working at BrightTALK full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of ownership opportunities. Flexible working "to a point". Nice offices.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency. The executives say there are clear ways to develop, but it is obvious they only want to promote and assist their clique within BrightTALK. The career development program is failing all the entry-level employees and only serves the people who've managed to escape. The culture in the various offices varies, but overall the company is toxic, lacks diversity,...

    Advice to Management

    Develop your internal talents and stop holding people back from exploring new positions. The "merit" based promotions are failing and are driving good people away from the company. The current culture is toxic and will end up purging BrightTALK of all the people who want to cultivate new ideas, push new products,a and develop your customer's experience.

    I have been working at BrightTALK full-time

    Pros

    As a young 20 something just starting my career, BrightTALK was a great place to get in there, start doing work and building skills and figure out more about what I wanted out of life. I got a lot of responsibility and was tasked with building trust internally as well as with clients and myself as I built skills. For an entry-level position, BrightTALK has a lot to offer if you're willing to take it and put the time...

    Cons

    The tech team is a little behind the times, which can make the BrightTALK product fade in comparison to other products out there on the market, especially in the San Francisco location. The culture is very much sales oriented, as opposed to engineering or marketing oriented - it can be hard to get approval for budget to do things like go to conferences or take courses to grow personally. The pay and the benefits package...
