    Pros

    kind of work life balanced.

    Cons

    almost all the key people left after IPO and they have strong competitors and they have a hard time growing. People are keeping leaving the company. What do you think.

    I worked at Brightcove full-time

    Pros

    Great location in downtown Boston and frequent happy hours. And that's a real plus, because everything else about the place is only tolerable when drinking.

    Cons

    If you find a culture of under-experienced engineers with outsized egos appealing - and you'll meet 'em all because every single one of feels they should be consulted on every technical decision, big or small - then go for it. You'll fit right in.

    Advice to Management

    The stock price is in dead cat bounce mode, but should flatten out near zero soon. What exactly is the vision these days? If you find yourself lacking one - and you probably do - stop any engineer downstairs and they'll be happy to tell you how to run your company. Real go-getters, that bunch.
