      Pros

      Interesting work and opportunities for growth. Lots of in house courses that are very well design to develop soft-skills. Great people in the company, lots of events, very supportive team.

      Cons

      Rapidly changing. This can be good, but it creates some uncertainty at times.

      Pros

      Hootsuite has great people, which foster an amazing environment. It's a pretty relaxed work environment that gives you the opportunity to have a life and a job

      Cons

      They pay very poorly and do not offer career growth, therefore they cannot retain top talent. They also only offer "surface level" perks Their leadership is very white and very male. They try to say they are transparent, but they don't actually do what they are saying. The product is struggling and having a hard time keeping up with competitors. Clients are leaving because of the product and its price point.

      Great People, Poor Management and Front-end Practices

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Great learning opportunities for those beginning their careers - Developers you get to work with are great people for the most part - Good work/life balance; a pretty social company - Lots of interesting problems that need fixing

      Cons

      - Management fails to listen to development concerns and continually forces new features despite pretty large issues in underlying systems and development practices - Lack of focus on building quality UI/UX despite their desire to "make UI/UX a differentiator" - CEO is purely in it for himself rather than putting the company first (he's a 45 year old party boy that abuses the office for his own pleasure; ex his party room at the office that only he gets to use) - Past sexism issues that were ignored by multiple levels of management until someone on a completely different team got involved (all but one of these managers are still there)

      Product lacking cohesiveness

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great people that are also quite capable of being client partners in guiding them to maximize their Hootsuite investment.

      Cons

      The product itself lacks polish and "common sense" engineering. Product teams work in silos which creates a user experience that is incohesive. Lots of instability within the management group which creates an unstable environment for the employees.

      Good people but unclear career path

      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

      Pros

      Work with great people. fun environment.

      Cons

      Massive turnover in management, specifically at Executive level. The corporate vision is weak and doesn't seem have any inspiration. The product is buggy and development is slow. Executives do not listen to customer needs, instead they force the roadmap on customers which leads to churn. Management largely doesn't listen to individual contributors.

      Great potential but completely rudderless

      Business Outlook

      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.
