    I have been working at BrightHR full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been at the company for a short time, but already have warmed to the vibe and the role within Bright. A sales led area driving a fantastic product both over the phone and online.
    The energy of the company is fast paced and is for people who enjoy change and big rewards for hard work.
    There is lots of autonomy to make change and new ideas are always welcomed.

    Cons

    None have come to mind as yet

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    I worked at BrightHR full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Excellent training.
    - Excellent motivation from the top.
    - Your voice and opinions are always listened.
    - Fun and friendship.
    - Excellent balance work/life.
    - Excellent salaries.
    - Excellent team work (inside)

    Cons

    - Too big (staff) for the product (small and not very innovative) compared with competence.
    - Too slow to take decisions, since all of them are listened, there's a waste of time in taking one.
    - Lately being more and more strict with rules that made us be more productive and relaxed before.
    - Poor work between (SOME) different teams.

    Advice to Management

    Have some % of the guys working in the backend dedicate time to Mobile specifically. Front-end is front-end, doesn't matter if Web, iOS or Android.

  5. "The Future's Bright(HR)"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Manchester City Centre, England
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Manchester City Centre, England

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

    Pros

    The team - everyone just gets on with it. Everyone is approachable and wants the best for the Company. City centre location. Office space is good.

    Cons

    As big as the office is, not enough 'quiet' space for lunch/breaks.

    Advice to Management

    Have faith in your employees, continue being transparent and sharing.

    I have been working at BrightHR (More than a year)

    Pros

    A solid culture around data-driven testing and learning has really been embedded, and there's freedom to create and test hypotheses.

    Cons

    Like any start-up we've been guilty of wanting to get a market-leading product as quickly as possible, and we made mistakes along the way. We've aimed to overcome this by instilling a sense of patience across the business to gather more data before making critical decisions.

    Advice to Management

    To always listen to what the teams are saying, particularly those with regular face to face contact with the customers, and more importantly those who decide not to become customers.

    Pros

    Great location near Victoria Station and a short walk from Manchester City Centre.
    Nice open plan office with plenty of light and good views.

    Cons

    The whole company is marketing and sales lead, and they don’t seem appreciate or take time to care about the complexity or time that goes into making a world class product.
    Staff are generally treated well, although I've witnessed cases where they treat staff in a way which is in complete contradiction to their company values and with a lack of respect.
    Can take ages to get IT equipment sorted, not through seeking approval but because Peninsulas IT team insist on locking down your machine so you have very limited access.

    Advice to Management

    You should focus on building a collaborative environment where everyone is working towards the same goal, and allowed an appropriate amount of time to complete the task in hand.

    Thank you for taking the time to review BrightHR. It's disappointing you left Bright feeling this way about the business. In recent months we've put a great deal of emphasis on improving processes... More

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

    Pros

    This is a fantastic company to work for. The environment is the best, the culture is fun and you can really feel at home. As places to work go, this is near perfect. It's an environment where you feel comfortable and can express yourself regardless of personality type. Every single person is approachable and nice. It's the type of place where the CEO or CMO walks past and you can grab them for a quick chat. The perks really are quality. The office environment is beautiful, there is a garden in the centre of the office with bean bags and tents. There is a huge canteen with PlayStations etc. Free tea and coffee and fruit twice a week. Monthly TGI Friday's, booze and food and quarterly themed dress up days.

    Cons

    As a rapidly growing start up sometimes you do feel a bit of a departmental divide but that's just about communication which is being worked on. There are lots of nerf guns which can be annoying when trying to focus.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being brilliant. Because we are growing so fast I see new faces all the time and don't know who they are. Maybe a quick mention on Yammer for all newbies so we know who they are , what they do etc. The photo synopsis which Gemma introduced was a great idea, maybe something similar for all?
