    Pros

    The Brightcove executive team is extremely supportive with a strong focus on employee, customer and company success. There has been a lot of change over the past year, but this is because the company is at the forefront of moving into the next phase of rapid growth, product expansion, and market leadership. In order to achieve those big goals, a high level of urgency, efficiency, and big change is required. This... is an amazing place to be if you want to work hard, work fast, and work toward having big impact in a rapidly changing market. There is a lot of work to do here -- but this means there is a lot of opportunity to own programs, learn quickly, and propose new ideas. The culture within this company is great -- lots of working parents and understanding for family flexibility, lots of collaboration among teams, lots of friendly people, and lots of opportunities for fun (and food) with bagels, endless candy, fully stocked kitchens, ping pong competitions, and more. There are also a significant number of women in positions of leadership in this company including several members of the board of directors (and the chairperson), the leader of customer support, the head of marketing, the leader of HR, and more. The culture at Brightcove is to actively promote those with the highest success record, leadership skills, and passion.

    Cons

    Because the culture at Brightcove is so nice, there is a legacy of involving a lot of people across the organization in all decisions. While this is a great collaborative asset, if there are too many cooks in the kitchen, sometimes processes can slow down. This is changing as the organization continues to evolve and urgency / delivery is demanded by the executive team.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to solicit and respond to employee feedback and continue with transparent communication to entire organization.

    Pros

    The people are generally very friendly, and there are a lot of smart people. Other engineers are almost universally receptive to constructive criticism during code reviews and architecture discussions, which is refreshing.

    Cons

    The engineering culture (and technology choices) are all over the place, which may or may not bother you. Don't expect to get paid your fair market rate or promoted to your correct title without fighting for it (and you may have to leave and come back to get it!)
