I have been working at Hubspot as an intern (less than an 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.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Hubspot full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Low level of bureaucracy
    Very flat organization where you can meet easily with anyone
    Good perks, and casual work atmosphere
    Transparency everywhere - information is almost always shared via the wiki, very different from my last work environments
    Metrics driven for sales, and promotions are based on set criteria, not politics or favoritism
    Investing in better and better office/working environment

    Cons

    Disconnect between some of the divisions, and lack of communication has caused tension
    Executive leadership tries very hard, but still a pretty glaring disconnect between what is happening "on the ground" vs. what their ideal might be
    Growing pains of becoming a bigger organization are widely evident, as office space is lacking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to go down the path of more communication, and always explain the "why" behind decisions. Sometimes there appears to be a lack of clarity as to why decisions are made, which can inadvertently pit divisions against one another, ultimately working against the singular vision.
