    Pros

    company is in rapid growth, a lot of personal growth opportunities with an informal vibe, that allows you to extend your job description.

    can be demanding in terms of hours and commitment from employees.

    Advice to Management

    sharing the high level achievements and plans of the company every quarter is great, but need to better tie that with my specific team goals, so that it is clear how i am contributing to achieving the overarching goals.

    Pros

    Imagine a place in which every day you will face new challenges, meet great customers, and work with amazingly smart people. That's the way i feel in Kaltura. A rapid growing company, which brings many challenges, but on the same time, allow great flexibility while every contributor can become a real star. The video industry is the right way to be in these days, and Kaltura is absolutely leading this exciting industry.

    Cons

    Lack of some processes, sometimes vague responsibilities, and endless deals in the pipeline, can sometimes spare few sleeping hours. For those who are concerned about these, Kaltura might not be the right place at this point. For others with entrepreneurs blood, it might be the perfect playground to experience and help to build.

    Advice to Management

    More focus on HR to build the great talents in the company, while investing in the Kaltura brand to attract more great people, will definitely help.

    Pros

    The quality of the people is top notch, there is a great atmosphere of team work and drive to get things done. While things are typically very busy and hectic, there's always a sense of accomplishment and moving forward.

    Cons

    HR policies still need to be put in place. It's happening, which is a good thing.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to speed up the HR procedures and processes, and be extra sensitive when it comes to personal requests and concerns from employees.

    Pros

    Right place and right time to be at Kaltura! Company is invested in many portions of the video market place and is on a rocketship to grow. With growth comes challenges and steering a multi-headed / pronged company is not without natural distractions. If you can allow yourself to come up for air and see the 10,000 foot few, this is a place that makes peoples careers as all employees are given freedom to go and do, lead and address problems head on.

    Cons

    Culture still figuring itself out. As the company has grown its gone through various stages of engagement and focus on the staff. There has been an impressive put to get personally engaged with all team members over last year and the culture is forming and being shaped as a kick a%splace to work.

    I have been working at Kaltura full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Very collaborative environment and culture, people will always help each other and there are plenty of social interactions outside of work (karaoke seems to be the favorite social activity)
    - Flexibility to work remotely dramatically improves work-life balance. No such thing as "face time", you are managed by what you do, not by how much time you spend in the office
    - The company is still nimble, so each role's responsibilities go beyond what traditionally such role would be responsible for in a larger firm = opportunities to learn outside your traditional day to day responsibilities
    - Online video is a hot industry, so it feels like the company's products are shaping online trends.
    - Most people take pride in what they do and in the company. They refer to themselves as "Kalturians"
    - Rapidly entering new markets or developing new products, so it keeps things interesting

    Cons

    - The company is growing fast so some processes that you would normally see in larger companies are yet to be implemented or need to improve.
    - Hours are long, there is always more work than one can handle

    Advice to Management

    More focus on building internal processes that will scale through the company growth. Invest in middle management.

    Pros

    Incredible people. Inspiring leadership. Tremendous drive and ambition. Real entrepreneurialism. Innovative and intense Israeli culture. Global vision.

    Cons

    Kaltura is taking a big swing across many verticals and business lines. It's also a very global company. You must be comfortable jumping in and swimming. Finding your way. The culture is intense and driven. Not lots of coddling.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing. You have an inspiring vision and drive. Your revenue and goals focus as well as your focus on transforming a number of existing industries with video is awesome.

    Pros

    Shaping how video is used within the online business, entertainment and education markets is exciting and Kaltura supports those markets well. The product line is nimble and the company looks for ways to maximize compatibility and standards to fit within other applications. With open source at the core of what they do, there is a large user community that provides feedback. Finally, the prospective customers can try the open source version and that speeds their adoption once they finally do invest in Kaltura.

    Cons

    Like any sales driven organization, the larger the prospective deal the more focus and resources that are applied to make the deal happen.

    Cons

    Being the connective tissue between Israeli tech and American operations can prove very challenging.
