Does Hootsuite offer massages?

Pros

- Looks great on your resume, it was really easy to find a job afterwards - Free fruits - Dog friendly - Cool Office - Free work out classes during work - In house massage therapist every Thursday - Cool people - Beer Fridays - Four weeks vacation

Cons

The whole premise of Hootsuite is great. There's all the pro's I listed above, but those perks don't play into your day-to-day there when you have to deal with everything else. First off, your pay is below industry by a lot (I was making at least 5k less than my peers). Secondly leadership and management are awful. You see people axed and laid off, there's a kool-aid culture where you can't say anything bad about the company, and in ESPECIALLY the sales team, every time we fail to reach a target as a whole, there's an organizational witch hunt to find out the reason why, and there's a strategy switch. I'd say our strategy changed every other quarter. It was exhausting, especially with sales cycle that were this long. I didn't see myself advancing and I disagreed with the frequent changes there were. Hootsuite isn't a start-up anymore and their leaders have to stop acting like it is. Everytime there is an impromptu switch from the leaders, we the employees are left scratching our heads with all the processes and other things that need to be changed. At the end of the day, those perks/pro's listed above are great but when you're really trying to build your career and establish yourself in tech, it's not the best place to learn and grow.

What are some insights into the strategy or vision at Hootsuite?

Pros

Dog-friendly office with flexible working environment. Great learning and development opportunities. You get to work with customers all over the world across many industries. Great for entry or junior levels to grow their skillset + career.

Cons

High employee turnover rate. Lack of strategic direction and alignment. Evident divide between product and customer-facing teams. A lot of broken systems and poor data = poor customer (and employee) experiences. Lack of diversity and inclusion (especially at senior-level roles).

Advice to Management

Foster more cross-departmental collaboration, listen to customers and actually do something with their feedback.

Lack of strategic direction and alignment.
