Pros

Can't think of any since most peeps are now WFH so you won't get free snacks, free coffee, gym blah blah blah.. BUT in all honestly, Hootsuite does pay above market to lure you in!! 4 weeks+ vacation days to start!

Cons

Lots! Let's start with incredible amount of overtime work!! Lack of career growth, too much political struggle and fake people being unprofessional and trying to gain an edge by offering some favours to managers. People in their clear mind can see the recent positive reviews are all fake using words like "Great Company" or "Overall a positive experience" - these peeps definitely got incentives to do this. Almost anyone who is competent is already gone!! But feel free to join if you wanted to milk some cash cow (if any cash left).

Advice to Management

Nah... after recycling of CFO's, why bother?

Pros

- Great learning opportunities for those beginning their careers - Developers you get to work with are great people for the most part - Good work/life balance; a pretty social company - Lots of interesting problems that need fixing

Cons

- Management fails to listen to development concerns and continually forces new features despite pretty large issues in underlying systems and development practices - Lack of focus on building quality UI/UX despite their desire to "make UI/UX a differentiator" - CEO is purely in it for himself rather than putting the company first (he's a 45 year old party boy that abuses the office for his own pleasure; ex his party room at the office that only he gets to use) - Past sexism issues that were ignored by multiple levels of management until someone on a completely different team got involved (all but one of these managers are still there)

Advice to Management

Need to get a CEO that's capable of leading a business of this scale. Need to adjust the focus of development to improve the quality of the front-end codebase (split is roughly 80% back-end, 20% front-end). Also need to do a better job of retaining and hiring top talent.

Pros

Flexible hours, direct managers are good.

Cons

Upper management is disconnected from the company. Pay is low compared to industry resulting in high turnover.

Flexible hours, direct managers are good.
