I worked at Huddle

Pros

Nice office that is now empty, so plenty of space to stretch out? Good people throughout the company.

Cons

-Half of sales has quit or been fired since the fall.
-Product feels like a throwback to 1999 and is far behind all of the competition. Development unable to deliver important go to market updates.
-Marketing unable to deliver clear message. Messaging has changed frequently and with no positive results.
-Leadership team is a complete joke. You can find them prancing around the office
with a false sense of accomplishment which is entertaining to watch, but alarming when you realize they are driving the company they somehow built into the ground.
- No company culture (due to the misery). Enjoy the compulsory out of office & after hour events where you purchase your own drinks!
- Pay is below market rate
- Nepotism is the name of the game. Better be British or in the Inner Circle here or you'll find yourself getting the short end of the stick.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Board would be wise to make some changes and hire some new talent on the senior management team that are hungry and looking to do more than just collect a paycheck.

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

    Pros

    Location is central to the city. Lots of vacation time which you can actually use.

    Cons

    Huddle is in real trouble. A large percentage of the sales team have been fired, laid off or quit in the last 8 weeks. Shrinking sales numbers, shrinking sales team and a dated/ broken product all spell trouble for the company.The management team does nothing to improve the situation as it is composed of outside hires who are are inexperienced and do not know the first thing about penetrating the USA market, many of whom manage from London.

    Executives are simply out of touch with reality or the market that Huddle is part of. Awkward and uninspiring monthly meetings with Execs will act as source of entertainment and horror. Employees have no confidence in the leadership. No real changes are made to correct issues with the software, which has been basically unchanged for the past year. And has caused the sales team to lose the majority of opportunities that comes their way.

    Don't take my word though. See for yourself. Advice to applicants: take out the free trial of the software and see if you want to sell, market, or support Huddle. That should help you make an informed decision more than any review.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All of you need a reality check. Come back down to earth and act with some humility rather than undeserving arrogance. Value anyone silly enough to stick with the company during the downtime. As it is now you'll be left with very few employees if things continue on as they have.

    I have been working at Huddle full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great people sprinkled around the company
    Fun London location

    Cons

    Terrible, arrogant leadership
    Strategy is poor and even worse, it takes a long time to implement
    Technology is antiquated. Built on a house of cards
    Innovation is missing from the company
    Complete lack of transparency, backstabbing and bureaucracy you'd expect to see in a 30 year old 60k person company.
    Overpaid and over-leveraged executive staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should sell as soon as possible.
