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

Pros

You're surrounded by incredibly smart, visionary, level headed, and receptive people. I've never been a part of such a constructive team and had management that does such a great job at supporting you but letting you do your job on your own.

Cons

Growing at such a rapid pace that of course you come across some growing pains. Luckily though, the company is so dynamic that we're constantly changing to lessen this as much as possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a step back, look in the mirror, and figure out why you are losing so many talented people. The company is definitely going places if you do it right, but right now, it doesn't seem like you are. I started with 20+ people and over half my training class is gone inside of a year. Give people a chance to succeed, and make people feel good about coming to work. People understand it's a start-up and they are going to work long hours, but no work/life balance is what's making people look elsewhere. Also, since leaving, I've spoken to a lot of people in the Boston area who agree that HubSpot is losing it's luster in terms of being a highly desirable place to work.

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Cambridge, MA

    I have been working at Hubspot as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    HubSpot has an awesome engineering culture. I was lucky to get an internship there and I'm enjoying it very much. The developers are very empowered and have good morale.

    Cons

    I sometimes feel like HubSpot is not solving an important problem. As an engineer, I would like to be helping improve the world through technology, and slick internet marketing is not exactly making the world a better place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more time into "management" activities. Onboarding, employee reviews, organization charts, etc.
