    I have been working at Hootsuite

    Pros

    "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."-Margaret Mead I joined Hootsuite in the relatively early days (~100 people) and while process and structure has formalized, we've scaled infrastructure, budgets are bigger, in many important ways the company hasn't changed much since - that's a good thing. I think many people would be surprised at the size of Hootsuite since our output and growth (one of the fastest growing enterprise software companies of all-time) assumes a company 10x the size! These are some of the most passionate, creative, principled people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Our core values are lived every day: be humble, always be shipping, have a laugh. Joining Hootsuite was one of the best decisions I ever made; I can't recommend it enough.

    Cons

    The pace is exhilarating but exhausting! Make sure to always make time for self-care, our leaders are very flexible and encouraging of this. I've often made the mistake of heaping too much on my plate because there is just so much opportunity, so much to do, and people are truly empowered to run with things.

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

    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).

    I have been working at Hootsuite full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some great people, great location, amazing work-life balance.

    Cons

    No leadership from the top down, no strategy (other than to hit sales targets, which we rarely do), no focus, and no accountability for poor decision-making. 20 percent of the people do 80 percent of the work; the rest are just great talkers and politicians.

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

    Pros

    - People are friendly and often dedicated - The best employees work hard and really are top of their class - Culture is good and staff engagement is high - It's inspiring to work at a company that's experiencing such rapid growth - They work hard to keep employees happy in terms of culture - Lots of opportunities to help/support the local community - In-office fitness classes/clubs

    Cons

    - No employee reviews means very little opportunity for career growth and/or salary increase - Management varies enormously between departments/teams. Many people with management titles were promoted as the company grew without any real management experience and are no longer qualified. - Salaries are industry median at best an benefits aren't great - Communication/working relationships are poor between HQ and international offices/teams

    "Inconsistent"

    I have been working at Hootsuite full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They treat you like an adult, flex-time, dogs, coworkers are generally really nice. There are some nice perks like open learning sessions at lunchtime, or fresh juice and organic fruit served in the cafeteria, but then again these things are pretty standard for any startup or trendy tech company.

    Cons

    Low pay, growing pains (increasing bureaucracy, processes constantly changing and messing up communication and quality), low to no HR / management support, very limited career or pay growth opportunities. Middle management that do way less get paid way more.
