What is overtime like at Sprout Social?

Pros

Sprout is, in a word, amazing. I've only been working here for a few months but already feel like Sprout is part of my DNA. Everyone is kind, driven, supportive and empathetic. Sprout really embraces diversity and I've learned a lot from our monthly Diversity, Equity & Inclusion guild meetings! Leadership is really connected to the rest of the company, offers a lot of transparency into the business and leads with empathy. During the COVID-19 crisis, when other companies have been forced to pull back on resources, Sprout offered even more support, including a stipend for home office supplies. That never would have happened at my last company. Blessed to be a part of Team Sprout!

Cons

Not really a con, but standards and expectations are high. If you work hard and collaborate with your team, it pays off.

Advice to Management

Keep on doing what you're doing.

How flexible is your schedule working at Sprout Social?

Pros

Sprout has a culture that's been intentionally built upon shared values. These are plastered all over the office space and ingrained in everything the company does. With the pandemic and the transition to full-remote work across the company, we've found that the values-based culture holds up, even when the "perks" of the office aren't accessible for now. The company is serious about diversity, equity, and inclusion, and that's apparent in just about every meeting, process, policy, and interaction. This is a company that cares about PEOPLE because they're valuable, not simply because they're productive. That shows itself in a compassionate and considerate community, supportive business resource groups, and flexible time off and other policies that support good work-life balance. Beyond that, everyone goes above and beyond to make sure that each person's experience is excellent and that their needs are met, whether that's accommodating schedules for family commitments, making benefits accommodations for non-traditional families, or just celebrating important moments in our work and personal lives, I've felt like a part of a family at Sprout since the day I joined.

Cons

As the company continues to grow, there are constant challenges to overcome with org structure, staffing, and scaling teams in effective ways. Generally, these challenges are addressed thoughtfully in ways that support healthy teams and healthy future growth, but the growing pains can be awkward. Additionally, Sprout has such a supportive and engaging office environment that it's been somewhat disappointing to lose that with the pandemic. There have been so many creative ways to replicate that in our current fully-remote setting, but we're missing some of the sense of community that comes from physical proximity. There's much to look forward to in the return to the office post-covid.

Advice to Management

As the company continues to grow, don't overburden managers with too many responsibilities. The more individuals who report to a manager, and the more additional responsibilities the managers have, the less time they have to coach, develop, and lead their people effectively. Leading and developing people should always be a manager's primary role.

That shows itself in a compassionate and considerate community, supportive business resource groups, and flexible time off and other policies that support good work
