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

    Pros

    BrightTALK is a great place to work for people who are ambitious and driven. You don't have to wait for the job above yours to open up to move forward, new roles get created so that successful people can be promoted into new responsibilities. The company is very committed to having a positive culture and workplace and it's reflected in the people you work with every day.

    Cons

    People who want to coast in their jobs should look elsewhere.

    I worked at BrightTALK full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great individuals in middle management but slowly being poisoned from the top. - Great place to figure out what to do next and work a 8-5 job sitting under fluorescent lights.

    Cons

    I can’t begin to describe how sad of a workplace environment this is. All I can say is don’t take an opportunity here. It’s stagnant and an extremely depressing place to work. There are too many good opportunities in SF, don’t let them fool you. There are many that hsbe worked here for 4-5+ years but don’t be fooled they’re waiting for their promotion they should have received years ago.

    I worked at BrightTALK full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - People are intelligent, ambitious and enthusiastic - Great place to develop interpersonal and professional skills - Young, fun atmosphere

    Cons

    - Employee turnover is incredibly high - Various teams are working on similar, misaligned projects - The company constantly attempts to re-org and re-align - Extreme focus on revenue impedes quality of work - Ego-driven culture from the top down - things are taken personally and people hold grudges - Favoritism creates an air of unhealthy competition - Sarcastic / bitter tones are tolerated (from managers and colleagues alike) - Team leads / managers don't have much experience managing and get advice from the wrong people - Low compensation with minimal perks

    "A great place for young professionals to grow"

    4.0
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at BrightTALK full-time

    Pros

    BrightTALK is a great place for ambitious young professionals who are eager to learn and grow. You're given tremendous opportunities early in your career, allowing you to make great connections and earn triumphs. If you exert yourself and produce great work, you'll be rewarded with new opportunities and growth in your career. The company is still small enough that you can make personal connections with senior members of the company and learn a great deal from each of them.

    Cons

    BrightTALK is a growing organization, so there are many changes that take place. If you are not malleable and cannot adapt to change, this is probably not the best place for you.

    Current Employee - Community Management in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at BrightTALK full-time

    Pros

    As a young 20 something just starting my career, BrightTALK was a great place to get in there, start doing work and building skills and figure out more about what I wanted out of life. I got a lot of responsibility and was tasked with building trust internally as well as with clients and myself as I built skills. For an entry-level position, BrightTALK has a lot to offer if you're willing to take it and put the time in.

    Cons

    The tech team is a little behind the times, which can make the BrightTALK product fade in comparison to other products out there on the market, especially in the San Francisco location. The culture is very much sales oriented, as opposed to engineering or marketing oriented - it can be hard to get approval for budget to do things like go to conferences or take courses to grow personally. The pay and the benefits package seem to be standard or slightly below standard considering peers in the area. No ping pong tables. This job role is great for entry level, but after that it's hard to figure out where it moves and how to advance considering the skill sets you're using in it.
