I have been working at Huddle full-time for less than a year

Pros

Cool office complete with pool table, dartboard & smart and talented employees

Cons

Unrealistic expectations for all departments which has resulted in firings and lay offs. Everyone is underpaid, overworked and generally fearful for their job. Not surprisingly Huddle has failed once before in the United States, when they came over from the UK 2 years ago, and it appears that they are well on their way to failing for a second time.

The product is absolutely terrible and does not work. Good luck marketing, selling or supporting this abortion of technology. Do yourself a favor before accepting a job here: really have a think on if you believe a half-baked British product is going to be able to compete against Box, SharePoint, Dropbox and a handful of other more established vendors. No? I didn't think so. Keep moving.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop self congratulating yourselves on this software and start trying to fix the problems in marketing and product development. You have an obligation to all the employees you hired and brought over from the UK to make Huddle a success in the USA.

    I have been working at Huddle full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company is made up of great people - intelligent, hard working and a lot of fun. The offices reflect the culture - they're bright, open and foster collaboration. And the perks are good - lots of free food and drinks, fun nights out, generous vacation days and healthcare provided.

    Cons

    Working across three timezones can be tough, so Californians can expect early morning meeting during the working week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keeping the culture open and fun (whilst fostering hard work and success!) will be key.

    Pros

    Super hi-energy, enthusiastic company. It's a work environment that requires you to deliver at your highest potential and then some - exhausting & challenging, but highly rewarding! Excellent prospects for swift -as deserved - career progression! The market for cloud based content & collaboration solutions is expanding very rapidly! Senior mgmt is highly available to all employees & customers. They genuinely care about the detail of their people & operations.

    Cons

    This is still a small up & coming company that has not yet made it to the big leagues. With that comes all of the fast-paced, turn on a dime requirements and potential for unplanned changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on the nuts & bolts of what customer's need.
