I have been working at HubSpot full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

An absolutely fantastic work environment. Very inclusive, great work life balance and wonderful coworkers. There is plenty of room for growth and I love the opportunities for cross-collaboration across departments. I'd recommend Hubspot to anyone.

Cons

Due to the size of Hubspot, it can feel very large at times.

    Cons

    This is my second time writing a review about HubSpot because I was coerced into removing my criticisms by a third party. Instead of contacting me about my concerns as a former employee, HubSpot decided to reach out to someone that is tangentially connected to this situation for feedback on an experience that he knows nearly nothing about. HubSpot epitomizes what is wrong with the world today and is a remarkable example of modern day discrimination, cultural insensitivity, institutionalized racism, implicit white bias and income inequality.

    Martin Luther King, Jr. once wrote that "most whites in America proceed from a premise that equality is a loose expression for improvement." I stand by my belief that HubSpot is not diverse in the faintest sense. After having to defend my initial ANONYMOUS post, I actually think that my original grade for effort on diversity of a C is too generous and an F is more appropriate. Their 2016 numbers speak or themselves, they're 85% white.

    I was uncomfortable being the only black individual in a new hire cohort of 50+ people. My manager triggered stereotype threat with her poor word choice in our one-on-one check-ins. She made culturally insensitive remarks and didn't care about how her management was disrupting my learning experience. I was progressively profiled and given exit papers over the course of three weeks, which makes me wonder why I wasn't interviewed more thoroughly. Firing someone during on-boarding is essentially condemning their learning style.

    The CEO's personal commitment to diversity is not permeating the organization in a meaningful way.

    Advice to Management

    Drill down more deeply on diversity numbers and hold people accountable for producing results. Invest in cultural sensitivity training for the entire organization, with an emphasis on mid-level management. Don't just smile and nod when people of color offer criticisms about culture, but make structural changes that reflect recommendations they make. Research stereotype threat and implicit bias in order to create policies that guard against the damage caused by them. Also, research funds of knowledge and how to honor them in the workplace. Since you know exactly who is writing this, don't retaliate by forwarding my message to someone who is working on a substantial partnership with HubSpot. If you really want to grow from this experience, reach out to me since I am the person who is most capable of shedding light on my experience as a former HubSpot employee.

    HubSpot is a place that highly values diversity and inclusion--like many companies in tech, we've said we have continued work to do to be where we want to be, and that's something our CEO is heavily... More

    I worked at HubSpot as an intern

    Pros

    -The team I worked on was extremely welcoming and tight-knit
    -I felt like an integral part of the team - not like an intern
    -My tech lead always made sure I was satisfied with what I was doing
    -Lots of benefits to take advantage of (ping-pong, snacks, beer and coffee, video games, etc)
    -Tons of awesome company events that were lots of fun
    -Company culture is awesome

    Cons

    -I felt like some of the other interns did not have as great of an experience as I did - it felt like the internship experience varied based on team placement
    -If you're not willing to put in the work you won't get a return offer

    Thanks for writing up your experience on your internship--I agree team variance can play a role in how much someone enjoys the experience, but I love hearing that your tech lead was helpful and that... More
