I worked at Hubspot full-time (more than an year)

Pros

- kitchen
- beer fridge
- cool office
- no dress code
- if you're the right person, plenty of opportunity for career advancement

Cons

- plenty of people in management roles with no management experience, who are more concerned with themselves and their friends at the company than their team
- a ton of politics, for a company that claims to be "flat" and have a "no door policy," behind the scene politics dictate everything.. .and if you aren't behind the scenes, then you simply fall victim to decisions made
- for a place so data-driven, they ignore a lot of the big numbers... namely the number of people leaving, its as if the floodgates have opened.
- favoritism... if you are one of the named few, you can do anything you want (i.e., not perform) and still have job security, even opportunity for advancement, over people who actually deserve it
- AWFUL pay... even on the sales team where you can supposedly make a ton, they pay miserably low salaries, far below market-rate, and if you even try to ask for a raise, you will be looked at like an alien- and probably treated like one
- their "no jerks policy" is a flat out lie- the place is filled with them, starting from the top down.
- Morale sucks. big time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Listen to the little people, most of us had managers who were simply there to take home their salary at the end of the day, and never even tried to communicate the frustrations of their team
- Practice what you preach
- look at every team/division with the same importance... sales isn't the end-all-be-all... ignoring the other departments will only last for so long
- Seriously evaluate the efficiency and performance of every employee equally, and make sure that for every role, there is a promotion/raise structure. I'm willing to bet you've got at least 20% of the employees doing fluff jobs and/or not performing because their managers are their friends, or just don't care
- Look at your managers... how many of them are ineffective

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

    Pros

    - Get to work with intelligent, friendly people with a GSD (get s*** done) attitude.
    - Highly regarded company.
    - Rapid growth with IPO potential.
    - Lots of autonomy if you produce results.

    Cons

    This isn't a place for someone who wants "a job". It can be demanding, and you really need to buy into the mission of the company to change marketing for the better and enjoy the culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - keep innovative, start-up mentality
    - start to think about how to reduce politicization as we grow - there's lot's of transparency on the upper levels, but not so much once you dig a tier below

    I have been working at Hubspot full-time

    Pros

    Great company, great people, complex sales cycle, strong product.

    Cons

    Heavily focused on SMB. You will be working inside sales, it's basically a call center.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire less experienced people for this sales role. It does not require someone with 5 years of successful sales experience and seasoned sales professionals don't want to go through your training program.
