    I have been working at HashiCorp full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great technology that is driving transformational changes for customers; thought leadership and continued innovation; aggressive compensation plans and ability to overachieve as an Account Manager; strong alliances with cloud vendors and system integrators; leadership that cares about the employees and has their best interest at heart.

    Cons

    Demand for our tools is requiring us to grow very quickly. It is important to maintain the strong culture and principles upon which HashiCorp was founded. I'm confident we will.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the thoughtful and pragmatic approach to growing the company as we continue to scale. Our technology is becoming the standard for the largest enterprises as they build a hybrid cloud operating model.

    Pros

    HashiCorp has grown into a force in the market, helping customers move to a multi-cloud reality much faster and safer than they could otherwise. The sales team and customer support teams have grown very quickly but with strong talent. We have delivered major product updates in all four products and a services function to help our most strategic customers. This is a great place to work and will be a leader for years...

    Cons

    We continue to outgrow our tools faster than we can update them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on what is best for our customers (more TAM's, more SE's, more integration functionality) and keep building great teams!

    Thanks for your review! You're spot on to call our principles. They describe our culture and what it is like to work here well. As we hire, to your point, more TAM's, SE's, and more folks across the entire organization we will all continue to uphold our principles in everything we ...

    I have been working at HashiCorp full-time

    Pros

    I have been at HashiCorp for under a year but it has been the best move I have made in my career to this point. This has the potential to be a transformational tech company and the upside is enormous over the next several years. From a sales standpoint, our products are widely adopted and universally loved. This allows for "warm leads" and the opportunity to engage with customers who have already been using our products....

    Cons

    Still early to the market in some areas, not all customers are ready to adopt our tools. However, HashiCorp is winning with the some of the largest accounts in the world and in addition continues to see broader adoption and new companies downloading our products all of the time.

    I have been working at HashiCorp full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Smart product managers develop a roadmap for each engineering team based on market opportunities. - Features are designed and written via an RFC process with ensures well-considered design. - Kind, knowledgeable, diverse engineering team. - User experience is preferred over haste. - The company truly cares about customers and the community at all levels. - The company also truly cares about employees and strives...

    Cons

    - Since it's a remote position, you must be self-motivated and a self-starter; if so you will thrive. - If you are used to pushing aggressively to get your way or putting your foot down, you won't succeed. - It's not your code, it's everyone's code, and you will need to write your best and then bend to input; this can sometimes be difficult but it's a positive thing. - If you do not work well with diverse people, you...

    Pros

    Products are heading in the right direction. Engineering team has strong leadership and the market is embracing the messaging. Events staff is superb.

    Cons

    Sales management is learning on the job how to treat people the right way. Lots of micromanagement work that needs to be done. Expectations for Enterprise reps are way off base for a startup company.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at HashiCorp full-time

    Pros

    Great product, but product is not enough

    Cons

    Senior management is very tight within their little group, lacking honesty and transparency. While it's not ALL boys, it's still a club, insular in many respects. I would not trust my career and development to them. Take it for what it is - an interesting short-term opportunity, with little long term attraction.

    Advice to Management

    Move on.

    I have been working at HashiCorp full-time

    Pros

    Brilliant founders and early product and engineering leaders humble enough to build great products and define the market but not try and run the company through it's second phase of growth. Their commitment to the company principles is a key reason HashiCorp continues to thrive. Hiring amazing new people into engineering and product management to help with growth.

    Cons

    Some internal decisions take longer than you would like. Leadership works very (too) hard to not give up on certain people when it's time to move on. Need more customer facing resources to ensure customer success.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on the culture you have built, the people are what make this place great.

    Fast paced, extreme high growth company that provides technology that helps the world move to cloud .. but with this early success we continue to be very focused on sustaining a positive and humble culture .. and this seems authentically important to the management team .. its not just lipservice.

    Its not to say that we don't have challenges .. we do .. and they can be daunting and frustrating at times . and we can always be better at addressing them. These challenges so far seem to be the type of standard issues that any organization would have growing this quickly and most probably magnified by the extreme pace of new customers, new employees, new systems, accelerating revenue, new benefits, so many products,...

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, talking to your teams and valuing their feedback. The culture is critical and its not all about the numbers all the time and this balance is what makes HashiCorp such a uniquely wonderful company .. and I believe the trade secret that has made us so successful so quickly. As we continue to grow at this pace in the next year please ensure that we continue to value it and protect our core...
