I have been working at Brightcove full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Fantastic location in Covent Garden, right in the centre of London. Superb people - smart, ethical, really hard-working but they all love to have fun. Technology is proven, it works and development is constant. Customers are incredible and understanding how the technology helps them is a huge bonus

Cons

Way too much to do every single day. It's relentless.

Advice to Management

Don't forget the culture and passion that got us to where we are now.

    Pros

    If you are hands-on with your tools then this atmosphere is great to be a part of, as there is a lot of collective brain power within the engineering team. The team is always looking for smarter ways to whip up something. The busy bees are nice and easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Outside of the engineering team, there has been a lot of turnover within management and favoritism at every vertical. This causes the overall decision making to slow down. Folks that are promoted are generally based on "who knows who". Feedback comes in the form of silence or "sent home packing without any answers". Its a contentious culture and probably why competition is always a step ahead and generally running faster.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making rash decisions and put a thought behind every action. Respect your employees.

    Pros

    - Has been able to define a market segment and stay at the forefront for 6+ years
    - Customer-first attitude. Results driven behavior for the most part and a minimal amount of politics.
    - Has been able to pivot like a startup, even as the startup grew to adolescence
    - Ethical and honest behavior internally and externally
    - From the beginning people put an emphasis on culture as well as results and this has paid dividends. I am surprised at how well the no a-hole policy worked out.

    Cons

    - Boston winters
    - Cambridge office space is jam-packed and the office doesn't have great "flow" but that will get improved with a move to a new building next year
    - I've never loved the tendency to rely on email so heavily for communication, but that's partly the times and not necessarily a Brightcove thing.
    - Sometimes people are too nice and a little more confrontation wouldn't be a bad thing
