    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Hootsuite full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    One of the best company cultures I've ever seen. I must say, they hire the best people ever. I've met some of the best people I've ever met before at Hootsuite.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits could be a bit more competitive

    I have been working at Hootsuite full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people and team. Managers on this team are good and most have been with the company for a while. Work life balance is good.

    Cons

    After a couple months in this role many people realize it is not what it was made out to be in the interview process. Not many perks or benefits for working at Hootsuite. CAE team is underpaid compared to industry standards

    I have been working at Hootsuite full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Snacks sometimes, good Toronto office location. The people are great, very much a team although cliques everywhere. Looks great on a resume though

    Cons

    Terrible pay Terrible commission Terrible hours Teams often pitted against each other Too many meetings that can just be an email Toronto gets shafted, don’t think about coming in later than 8:25 and leaving before 5 while Vancouver office is empty at 4:00.

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

    Pros

    -first couple of weeks in training is a good time to meet colleagues and have some good bonding time -got experiencing RESELLING solutions as Hootsuite partners with other solution providers to complete their offering

    Cons

    -seemed as though most management has no experience managing outside of Hootsuite -pay structure is terrible - employees who have been building pipeline for 4 years have the same expectations as people who are 2 months into the role making it nearly impossible to make good money in your first year

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

    Pros

    Great co-workers with a wealth of experience Location is easy to access ( Downtown Toronto) Clients know the name brand and the logo

    Cons

    The Toronto expansion has been a failure at best. Low sales, high turn over and incompetent management. I can not speak on behalf of the other global offices since each location and department is very siloed. However, the Toronto office has been a major bust. Do your career and sanity a favour and stay clear., otherwise you will see what failure really looks like.
