    Independent and flexible environment but not much room for growth

    I have been working at Hubwoo.com full-time

    Pros

    It's incredibly flexible so you can work from home to be with your family, lots of vacation time, and no one really cares if you come into the office as long as you get your work done.

    Cons

    The work just ins't there so if you're looking for a lot of opportunity either financially or for experience you'll be wanting more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick with a plan and stop changing the direction so much. It doesn't help when the dedication to your employees who care and want to make things better aren't rewarded. You ask us to be innovative but when we are it's stifled by those who can't envision change and we aren't encouraged financially.

    I worked at Hubwoo.com full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - This company has the most flexible time I have ever seen. Depending on your position, you can work from home pretty much whenever you like, which is a huge plus for employees with families.
    - Their health benefits and PTO are top-notch.
    - They have some really talented, committed people.

    Cons

    Lack of culture, lack of direction. In some departments, lack of collaboration and motivation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hubwoo is supposed to be a software company – invest more time and resources in improving the product and in building a company culture. Not only will you get your employees to stick around longer but you will also make them feel more confident about the software they are building and/or selling.

    Pros

    If you work hard and take new challenges there is no doubt you can grow at Hubwoo into roles you could not have in larger firms. They are open to letting people develop. Global opportunities.

    Cons

    Global environment for such a small company means there is always cross-lingual and cross-cultural work. Often this means the ball get's dropped... a lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making all the important decisions at executive level without input from middle managers. Allow middle managers to grow by making real strategic decisions.

    I worked at Hubwoo.com full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Slightly above average salary. There's a 20 word minimum and I really can't think of anything else so I'm filling in with fillers.

    Cons

    Horrible management, lack of direction, lack of communication, no vision, hubwoo is a Frankenstein company just made up of a ton of different companies that they just bought up. And the name. Hubwoo? Seriously?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The smart people have left. Whoever is left, you probably won't make it anywhere else. Hold on to your jobs although I'm curious to see what happens now that SAP bought Ariba.

    HR Sucks Bigtime, you should consider changing your HR policies as well

    I worked at Hubwoo.com

    Pros

    Cant think of anything right now, as I dont see any pros of working here

    Cons

    HR is the real boss- the directors follow what the HR wants
    Seems like you work in a factory. With login and logout. Every movement is timed
    Not results oriented
    HR SUCKS BIG TIME most employees who resigned is due to Horrible HR processes
    No Flexibility
    HR wont here your opinions, they are just mere complaints to them
    HR has no consideration on lates
    Primitive business model

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace your HR, most of the people that went out are due to trash HR policies

    Pros

    The space they are in presents opportunity even after Ariba acquisition by SAP.

    Good mid level talent.

    Good health benefits.

    Cons

    The management means well, but seem to have no idea how to run a company. The Leadership Team make all decisions in a vacuum.

    The goal of everything done in the past year seems to be to sell the company. This may not be a bad thing, as fresh leadership may save it.

    Poor execution at every level. No one wants to take extra responsibility because of politics.

    Spread out workforce. This leads to massive amounts of unnecessary phone calls. Also leads to a no culture. It really does not feel like a software company.

    Outsourcing. They have chosen to outsource key core competencies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Merge offices. Listen to what the market is telling you. Stop trying to compete with Ariba.

    Pros

    The company has a good vision of where it wants to go, as nay company that has had to reinvent itself a few times it has growing pains, but I believe they have found the right path now.
    1. great time to work with
    2. good growing opportunities.

    Cons

    need to execute the vision faster to catch up in the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really like our CEO, just improve your communication, all decisions are taken within the leadership team and sometimes you are left clueless.

    I have been working at Hubwoo.com

    Pros

    Hubwoo is a great place to work with a truly international team. Contact with colleagues from the US, Europe and Asia happen on a daily base.
    Plus, Procurement industry is really hot right now.
    Plus, the excellent relationship to SAP, playing with the big elephant. And a great team of professionals.

    Cons

    Working with 280 employees spread over 10 offices on 3 continents is not always easy. Lots of conference calls, decisions sometime take too long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better understand local requirements. Grow Hubwoo to the size we deserve.
