    Pros

    HT has a great collaborative team environment where everyone is energized to come into work everyday. The people here are passionate about our product, the work we do, and the partners/customers we serve in a culture that fosters professional development and keeps us challenged. I like how transparent the company is and we have weekly meetings and product demos that keeps everyone engaged and accountable for the future of the company. We're doing some awesome things and I'm excited for what's ahead.

    Cons

    A few growing pains of a quickly expanding start-up.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees and continue recognizing the milestones we've made thus far.

    Pros

    A lot of autonomy, difficult challenges, but plenty of room for collaboration. The company seems to care about employee development and are putting things in place to ensure long term personal growth.

    Cons

    Not too many scrappy entrepreneurs here. Some employees seem okay with doing a solid job, but not taking it to the next level.

    Advice to Management

    Give more resources to employees to hire and develop their teams. Way more to do than we have resources for.

    Pros

    Fast moving and innovative culture.
    Amazing collaborative environment that makes decisions quickly and moves to action.
    I moved here from a larger Company (850 people) and if you haven't worked anywhere else you don't realize how great it is here: culture, food, people, perks. Founders that truly care instead of some drone management team.
    Management team that is transparent as possible and attempts to address issues as they arise. There doesn't seem to be any hidden agendas

    Cons

    Benefits packages need a bit of work to what other Company's are offering

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    -Getting to work on an excellent product with passionate team members.
    -Upper management really encourages employees to "live the brand," by providing chances to win fully funded spontaneous weekend trips and unlimited vacation.
    -The founders really take feedback to heart and try to implement changes where possible.
    -Great culture with a lot of unique team building events and fun activities.

    Cons

    On one hand, I've found it difficult to maintain a good work-life balance at times; but, on the other hand, I've gotten to take advantage of our #HTRoulette program, and have been able to take multiple vacations.

    Advice to Management

    Continue soliciting feedback from employees regularly, to encourage the transparent atmosphere you want to have.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. I agree that our "HT Roulette" spontaneous trips are amazing - one of my favorite days of the month. I appreciate the feedback that the work can be hard at times ... More

    Pros

    The smartest and most fun/funny people I've ever worked with. Working on/for a product you're proud of and actually use. Cool office set-up with an open floor plan. Great perks - food, bar, quarterly hotel credits, unlimited vacation. No meetings on Wednesdays.

    Cons

    I assume this is the case in many similar, rapidly growing startups, but promotions/raises don't just come to you – you have to be an advocate for yourself, show what you've achieved and prove your worth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring great people, being responsive to feedback and maybe add a hot breakfast on Mondays :)

    Pros

    - A lot of smart employees
    - The company has a good social aspect with a lot of fun events and happy hours
    - Beautifully designed office and daily catered food

    Cons

    - An overwhelming amount of employees are unhappy, but the founders don't seem equipped to deal with the issues they are facing and so they just try and cover it up with perks
    - Very high turnover, yet the leadership team seems unwilling to address it
    - Positions are often sold in the interview process much differently than they actually are once you join
    - Founders are unable to give up control and micromanage their teams
