I have been working at Hearsay Social full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Everyone here is really smart and really dedicated to the product and their work. They are also some of the nicest people you will ever meet - including the engineers! All of the awesome startup perks are also offered including onsite fitness classes, catered lunch everyday and team off-sites. Overall it's a great place to work and there's not much to complain about.

Cons

The location is a little out of the way and being so close to the ballpark can be tough on game days with all of the auto and pedestrian traffic. We are also experiencing some minor growing pains as we continue to hire aggressively while attempting to maintain the startup culture.

Keep it up!

    Pros

    - Non exec employees are all very nice
    - Smart people
    - Fun atmosphere
    - Free food
    - Good location

    Cons

    - Stanford elitism mentality exists here - coming from the top down (founders both Stanford alums). Didn't go to Stanford? You're 2nd class
    - Not much transparency from upper management to rest of company
    - Bitter employees do exist here - you'll come across many whispering in conference rooms spreading general negativity
    - They over promise and under deliver when it comes to your career trajectory
    - C-execs have favorites - don't expect to move up unless you're one of them

    Doesn't Recommend
