Current Employee - Staff Software Engineer in Campbell, CA
Current Employee - Staff Software Engineer in Campbell, CA

I have been working at Hightail full-time (more than an year)

Pros

- Its in a hot space
- They are desparate and will over promote to retain people.
- Claims of culture

Cons

- The company does not invest in engineering
- It is sinking, losing engineers and PMs everyday.
- Top leadership is inexperienced and completely disconnected from reality. Hoping they can do some PR stunts and sell more software
- Lacking a technical leader (new CTO is non-technical)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you are unable to stay grounded please get someone grounded and listen to that person

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

    Pros

    When I joined Hightail, I joined for the people, the role and the opportunity. I am pleased to report after almost a year into the role, I have no regrets. Hightail hosts an amazing team at all levels of the organization. It is a company full of very smart and passionate people - quite humbling.

    In addition, the management team is to notch and earnestly wants insights and feedback from the team. There is an open dialogue, regardless of level, which is very refreshing.

    Cons

    Like everyone in the space, we are trying to do a lot, and there are just not enough hours in the day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great work. Focus is critical.

    Pros

    Work / life balance is really good
    Great bennies (gym, unlimited PTO, free food)
    Comp is good (better than the large tech companies I’ve worked at)
    Cool locations (SF / Campbell / Seattle) and culture
    Hot space
    Keen focus on execution and growth

    Cons

    Day-to-day ambiguity can cause the weak to struggle
    Brand awareness needs to improve

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drive ownership / accountability. Continue to empower and reward top performers, and promote from within
