    I have been working at HoneyBook full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been working at HoneyBook now for about 3 years. Since day 1, I've always had confidence in the company and our leadership team. My confidence has only gone up since the outbreak of COVID-19.

    Before COVID-19 was on anyone's radar, HoneyBook developed a 3 tiered plan about how we were going to respond to the virus. The plans were thoughtfully communicated to all employees and just knowing that the company was thinking about this so early on was very reassuring.

    We've now been sheltering in place for over 2 months and the People/HR and Leadership Team have been so thoughtful and transparent about anything and everything. We took a survey about a month in and in areas that we scored low, Oz, our CEO, held a meeting where he addressed those concerns directly with everyone. I've never worked at an organization that has been this transparent. I truly feel cared for here, both on the job and outside of the job.

    Our office manager has been sending out weekly "wellness" emails. Due to personal reasons, some workdays are harder to get through than others. It's reassuring to know that HB cares about my mental health and wellbeing.

    All HB teams have come together to support our members (freelancers/small business owners) during this time. Seeing how agile our team can be even when we aren't able to be in the office has been so impressive. Our members know we are hustling and are there to support them. Seeing how positively they react to the work we put out definitely motivates me. I know we truly are making a difference in their lives.

    I've always felt proud to work at HoneyBook. Now more than ever, I especially am.

    Cons

    Personally, working from home is challenging. I prefer to be in the office. I know this is temporary though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep updating the company and continuing with the transparency. I loved hearing the Board Meeting recap a couple of weeks ago.

    Senior Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    The interview had 6 rounds and I talked to 12 people, which is more than 10% of the company. The 6 rounds included 3 on-sites.
    The interview included a take home assignment and a final presentation to senior leadership including the CEO. The take home assignment was not quick, and definitely super involved.

    Out of the 12 people I talked to, 10 were warm and open and I really enjoyed my interaction with them. 6 of them (including multiple people in senior leadership) said some version of "you are exactly what we need for this role". Which then was odd, because they didn't make me an offer stating "we don't know what we need right now".

    Altogether, the whole process was a pretty big waste of my time, as well as their time. But I am extremely thankful they rejected me, as working in a company that didn't value their own time and resources, would ultimately be bad for my growth.
