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

    Pros

    This has been my most favorite workplace ever!! I am telling 101% truth here. Extremely good work-life balance, get in just before 8 and disappear before 4:15. Team Managers are cool and we often troll each other for fun. Amazing snacks and fruits!! The gym is small and smelly but functional! Free yoga and fitness classes! Also free courses provided by HR on how to behave and interact around here. Easy brownie points!

    If you push the right buttons of your manager's manager, you get promoted within a year like myself! :)

    Don't really get all the negativity here. Hootsuite is famous for paying above market and doesn't expect too much of your work. In order to survive you must show up properly in team meetings. Key is to make people think you are way more important than you really are.

    Cons

    Hardly any honestly. No weird politics, just trolling around. There will be stressful periods but you gotta know how to push for extra temps. Why kill yourself right? It's just a job guys...

    I believe most complainers here have nothing better to do or just never satisfied despite their fat pay cheques. Not a single one person I know ever complained about pay and workload. Sales peeps just getting too greedy!

    Advice to Management

    Loving the fun culture here so keep it up!! Do whatever it takes to keep your head above the water! I do plan on sticking around for next 8-10 years after a couple mat leaves.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I went to the Hoothire event, and the friendliness seemed rather artificial: Time done? Thanks for your time, move along. Perhaps that's the point (considering how many people show up to Hoothire), but maybe extend the time a bit to let people show who they are; short time frames are in no way representative of each individual's personality.
