Former Employee - Software Developer in New York, NY
Former Employee - Software Developer in New York, NY

I worked at HookLogic full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- The people are a pleasure to be around; boasts most of nice work culture you might look for in a startup.
- Lots of really cool technology to work with, and learning experiences to be had.

Cons

- Career advancement (at least for software developers) doesn't really exist. Very few promotions/growth on the technical side.
- Long work hours with really aggressive deadlines, 24/7 service requirements can keep developers up into the early morning sometimes.
- Compensation can be poor (they've been strapped for cash since 2012, maybe that will change.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Don't sell out your tech roots: a transition to sales culture has been coming at severe cost to the tech culture.
- Less opacity: engineers don't have much involvement at all in product development and decision making. That should be changed.

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

    Pros

    Very relaxed atmosphere. People are friendly and motivated to work everyday. Lots of smart people too. Unlimited sick days

    Cons

    Pay is very low compared to market value. May need to work very long hours and work on holidays with no compensation. Code base is messy and rarely refactored. Will learn a lot

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend time managing code base. Compensate workers more appropriately if you make them work on holidays or overtime
