Company has great global niche, some challenges capitalizing on it

Director (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at Hubwoo.com full-time for more than 8 years

ProsIf 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

former exployee

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Hubwoo.com

Pros- good salary & experience
- very international (great for experience - but can lead to poor communication)
- growing industry

Cons- lack of guidance & company strategy (very reactionary)
- lack of career growth opportunities
- risk (will Hubwoo be around in 3 years?)

Advice to Senior Management- too many offices and mangers (flatten hierarchy)
- gain competency in strategic areas of procurement

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

This company is a joke

Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

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

ProsSlightly 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.

ConsHorrible 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 Senior ManagementThe 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

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

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Hubwoo.com

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

ConsHR 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 Senior ManagementReplace your HR, most of the people that went out are due to trash HR policies

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

A missed opportunity.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Hubwoo.com full-time

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

Good mid level talent.

Good health benefits.

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementMerge offices. Listen to what the market is telling you. Stop trying to compete with Ariba.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

good company with a chance of being great

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Hubwoo.com

ProsThe 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.

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

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great Place to work - very international and interesting industry

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Hubwoo.com

ProsHubwoo 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.

ConsWorking 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 Senior ManagementBetter understand local requirements. Grow Hubwoo to the size we deserve.

OK at the beginning, frustrating at the end

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Paris (France)

I worked at Hubwoo.com

ProsGood salaries, a promising partnership with SAP, global company with offices in many different countries and therefore opportunities to move.

ConsA bad working climate, very political, incredible fights following the numerous mergers and acquisitions, a company too small versus Ariba.

Advice to Senior ManagementSell Hubwoo to a large player or partner with companies able to really boost sales and help Hubwoo have the critical size.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

take a risk but have the opportunity to win a lot!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Paris (France)

I have been working at Hubwoo.com

ProsIt´s a very international environment within a fast business. It never gets boring - you always need to challenge new topics. The level of qualification of the employees is very high.

ConsHubwoo has a big leadership team with widespread competencies for a quite small company. Due to mergers and acquisitions in the past, a lot of time has been and still has to be spent on internal issues, less on customer satisfaction, internal growth and product development.

Advice to Senior Managementlisten carefully to the base and their problems to be successful in your job.
