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

    Pros

    Working with some of the smartest people I've ever worked with. Management truly care. They've started cutting costs and looking for ways to improve efficiency lately which is good to see. There was a lot of waste last year.
    Lots of opportunity to grow here. Your manager is really there to help you.

    Cons

    Compensation is way below market rate. Make sure you negotiate a good salary when you start here because getting a raise without a promotion is impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Increase transparency. People find out their news from Blind first and then management a week later. This isn't good enough

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 8+ weeks. I interviewed at Hootsuite (Vancouver, BC) in January-2018.

    Interview

    One hour interview following phone interview. The interview was conducted by the hiring manager and another senior technology manager accompanied by HR officer. Mostly technical assessment and a few questions related to my college experience and what got me started in coding. Offer made the next day.
