    Cons

    Some of the challenges: office can be pretty noisy, working with others that are not open to a quickly changing/evolving environment, no one is going to hold your hand, no standardized on-boarding process, underperformers can be distracting, communication with the UK team can be challenging The cons here are actually pretty minimal. You are going to have to work hard and learn a ton to be good at this job. Depending...

    Advice to Management

    -Take feedback about the product from the Sales Team seriously. Our customers tell us things that could help increase our client base. -Buy some jackets, t-shirts, hoodies, or something else for the team to wear.

    Cons

    -Overseas Communication:  Offices in London, New York, and San Francisco create a global presence; however, communication and collaboration between offices could be more efficient.

    -Provide all teams with more frequent and detailed updates about product roadmap

    I have been working at BrightTALK

    Pros

    - Collaborative work environment - Constant innovation due to the evolving nature of sector and product - Transparent business model where all employees are informed of the company direction - Open office lends to better communication between teams - Talented, qualified and driven team members

    Cons

    Very little too complain about. A stocked fridge and pantry make dieting tough and the clear view of the Embarcadero can make for long Friday afternoons!

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the growth model and leverage the upcoming social features as a foundation for the site. Essentially transform the user experience into a tool that professionals can't live without.

    Not enough resources. Products innovate often so sometimes hard to keep up. Requires flexibility as change is a constant.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on what matters most and keep on growing in the US market! Leverage the strength of the people
