Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Huddle full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The staff are great - intelligent, fun, sociable and (for the most part) dedicated. The office space is also great, plus you get some fun perks such as free beer, lunches, and quarterly company sponsored social events. Some upward mobility, and rapidly, if you are liked by the right people.

Cons

Huge disparity between the 'co-headquarters' - a real case of the left hand having no idea what the right hand is doing. If you aren't drinking the Coolaid you may not fit in with the culture. For a collaboration company there is a large top-down hierarchy, management aren't overly receptive to ideas from the ground floor. Very aggressive hire and fire policy, most of the staff live in fear of their jobs and a good proportion are actively searching, which doesn't lend a feeling of permanency to the place. Morale was very low during the time I was there, but they were working to improve that. Low pay compared to the market, and hard work due to the need to be seen overachieving in the eyes of the Execs.

Advice to Management

Worry less about having cool toys in the office and more about your staff.

    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 Management

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