    I have been working at BrightTALK full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free snacks in the kitchen.

    Cons

    Management is not interested in employee feedback (or only pretends to listen). Toxic culture, political games and infighting - no wonder projects can't get done. Disconnect between US-UK offices and teams, some of it due to legacy mindset and old employees unwilling to change with the times. The company has been around for ages, but it's still relying on tasks being done manually across too many teams. KPIs change...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and show them that the company's values mean something. Take better care of your users. Set limits as to how many times a user/lead can be sold within a certain timeframe. Invest in some tech. Automate tedious manual tasks. It's 2019!

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

    Pros

    I've worked at several large companies before coming to BrightTALK, and I have to say, this place really brings the collaboration to life. Everyone on the sales team is helpful when it comes to advice, working on deals together, or just being a listening ear, both peers and management. Across different parts of the business, everyone is willing to get involved with client questions or closing business including the...

    Cons

    There are no puppies allowed in the office, also difficult to work with co-workers in the UK (this could be a timezone thing).

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

    Pros

    The people are very supportive and collaborative. There is constant opportunity to learn and grow in your role if you initiate that interest. The Denver office is a smaller group than the SF headquarters but very collaborative and great working environment. The general feeling is that the company wants each individual to succeed and they have a process in place to help you do so. You will be surrounded by people who take...

    Cons

    If you are someone who needs a lot of guidance and do not like a challenge to figure things out and become independent in your role, you may not feel this is the perfect fit.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the good work you have started.
