I worked at TechSmith as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

TechSmith offers you amazing opportunities to gain insight into the software, late startup world. They have an amazing culture of innovation, and it is a lot of fun to be around. TechSmithies are some of the drop down best people in the entire world.

Its amazing how much time they spend focused on innovating their core, and brainstorming new ways to be successful and stay nimble.

Cons

TechSmith lets you operate a little below your capacity. Unless you really apply yourself to learn new skills, or to contribute to their core then you can find yourself bored.

They are nearly 20 years old now, and so have lost a bit of the inventiveness to bureaucracy and red tape.

Advice to Management

remove some of the roadblocks to innovation, and bureaucracy. You aren't a speedboat anymore - but at least pretend to be.

    I have been working at TechSmith full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friday lunch, free pop and espresso.
    Good benefits.

    Cons

    Mid-level Management is poor.
    Not a lot of opportunites here unless you are in development.
    Culture is over-hyped. They think they are so stringent on hiring processes, but really they have some people there that are not very good and middle-management does nothing about it.

    Advice to Management

    Mid-level management needs some people-skills improvement.
