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

    Pros

    The Brightcove workplace and culture enables engineers to be productive while still having fun. The work is interesting and challenging without being overwhelming. I feel like I'm learning and improving on new skills (both technical and non-technical) every day. My peers are all highly competent and fun and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Communication between departments could be improved to allow for better alignment between groups and overall company strategy.

    Advice to Management

    In some cases, I think product development may need better focus on specific goals rather than trying to satisfy a broad spectrum of features.

    I have been working at Brightcove

    Pros

    I have been working at Brightcove for 2 years and so far I really like working here. My colleagues are nice, smart, supportive, and generally just fun to work with. We are encouraged to try new tools, new services to streamline the daily works, improve the systems. I face challenging almost everyday, but I still feel work life balanced very well. Company provides all kind of benefits, including free snack/fruits,... and unlimited vacation!

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

    Pros

    + Very good company atmosphere - flexible in terms of time off, working hours and location + Upper management are approachable + Strong culture of helping people to learn and grow + Working on interesting problems at a large scale, using modern tech

    Cons

    - London office could do with either being changed or upgraded - it's in a good location but is a little the worse for wear inside.
