      Hampered by Mild Success in a Limited Market

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - The video streaming space is still exciting and full of possibilities. - A large customer base in an interesting range of verticals. - Could still be fun if you know you are working on a green field project. - Some nice people, some talented and passionate engineers. - Nice office in a nice location with all of the typical tech office perks.

      Cons

      - This business is a tech dinosaur, and can't both hold onto it's video CMS market and grow into new verticals. - This place is not for people who want to dream big and change the world. - Core platform engineers should be prepared to grind away at legacy codebases, and suffer through slow and incremental design that won't dare to addresses the big problems. - Ridiculous office politics, firings, attrition, design by committee, off shoring.

      A good video tech company to work for

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The company is located in beautiful Boston waterfront, only 5 minutes walk to south station. Brightcove has a good reputation as a video-centric company. The Online Video Platform (OVP) market is growing rapidly, Brightcove has a good share of the market. Fair compensation in Boston area.

      Cons

      Known as a video-centric company, Brightcove needs to invest more in core video technologies, and keep its video engineers. Turnover is a bit too high currently.

      Extremely transparent and thoughtful leadership, employees are collaborative and all working toward the same goal of helping businesses improve how they get their messages out into the world through video. Innovative and cutting-edge technology.

      Cons

      Due to COVID and working remote, you must be good about creating boundaries and creating a good work/life balance for yourself.
