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 Management

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

    Pros

    Some of the smartest people on the east coast surround you. It can be an inspiring cast of minds. If you want to do extra work to help the company on the side, they will greatly appreciate your hard work. If you hit the right place right time and do well, you can make serious money. The sales commission structure is perfectly in line with what benefits the company.

    Cons

    Right place right time is over. The sales commission structure is perfectly in line with what benefits the company. The metrics that benefit the company change quarterly, so your expectations and personal career management need to change with them, so it is challenging to establish goals. The life of a start up is exciting and this is all a part of it.

    Advice to Management

    Main Point: Stop looking at numbers all day and say more than 2 words to sales reps at a time. Visit the sales floor, you will realize that there are serious problems and you should be nervous or prepared to make a change.

    Pros

    HubSpot is a high performing organization that is building something big that will transform how people market their businesses. Management gives folks as much responsibility and autonomy as they can handle. It's an extremely transparent place and everyone on the executive team is accessible. There are also tons of opportunities to have fun here with your coworkers through organized dinners, events, or speakers.

    Cons

    HubSpot demands a lot of its employees. It's not a place for people who are not passionate about the mission and developing their craft. It is also a very unstructured place, so it may be difficult for folks who are looking for a lot of guidance and process.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in culture while scaling the organization. Focus on maintaining the transparency and communication practices that got you where you are today.
