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

    Pros

    The people are amazing. Most people at companies will say that they love the people, but the people here really are incredible. Everyone genuinely cares about one another and a lot of friendships have been formed. Hired really is on a great trajectory to be even more disruptive in the space than we already are, and we now have senior leadership in place with the right vision and skill set to get us there. There is so...

    Cons

    There are some typical growing pains of a start up, but that comes with the territory of working at a startup! The good thing is that we have people in place who are righting the ship, and things can only go up from here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! Lean on reps to give you feedback they're hearing from the field, and use that feedback to continue to make tweaks to our process/product, etc.

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

    Pros

    2+ yrs in the sales org and the best job I’ve ever had. Not the typical cut-throat sales org. Easily the smartest and most caring co-workers you’ll have. Everyone truly wants the other to succeed and will collaborate towards a common goal. There is a very high character bar set for sales reps. Easy accessibility to upper management if you have any issues Generally, Hired is much easier to sell than most SaaS business...

    Cons

    Sales hiring has picked up quite a bit. Many new reps still ramping and feel the normal startup pressures. Those at the company 1+ yrs know that we’re heading in the right direction, but others may not have “bought in” yet.

    Advice to Management

    It’s clear that more Sr employees have built a stronger relationship with upper management given they were more accessible in years past. Ensure that new hires get that same accessibility if you want them to be in it for the long haul

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

    Pros

    It feels good to work for a company that's changing the way people get jobs and in a way that focuses employers to do so in a diverse and inclusive way. The sales department is still new, being built in the last 2 years from my knowledge, but seeing momentum as the company has started to hit and exceed quarterly goals. I know of a few AEs that have made more than $75K in quarterly commissions which is extremely motivating...

    Cons

    There is this "OG" culture that is mostly gone here but they were in "sales" and weren't really sales people. So you end up with folks that weren't very welcoming for new hires and then when they realized they weren't performing to the levels of the new AEs became toxic on the way out. A lot of those people ended up writing negative reviews but overall, they've moved on to non sales roles at other companies where they...

    Pros

    - Lots of wonderful individuals at the company & accessibility to sr. leadership even at Hired's size - Great benefits/health coverage - Convenient office location - Snacks, catered lunch 3x a week - Interesting space to work in, super high growth and in demand.

    Cons

    - Despite company values, there is a widespread lack of risk taking which results in a lot of the same strategies being recycled y/o/y. This is compounded by their attrition rate. There are very few people at Hired that can help give context to what has and hasn't worked well with the business. The same mistakes are being made repeatedly. - Quota attainment for the AE team was under 20% for a few quarters, so OTE...

    Pros

    Best coworkers - Hired hires for people with shared values and passion for our mission. This is the first place I've felt I can bring my full self to work Great pay - Hired offers competitive base salaries and our new commission structure rolling out in Q1 is even better than before for equity Office - beautiful SF, NY, etc offices.

    Cons

    Middle management in sales are mostly first time managers - all great people who genuinely care about their teams but I do wish for more experienced leadership sometimes As we've grown, not all our new hires are gems. I wish we would grow more carefully and gradually (i.e. not hiring 10 people for a new team at once who then have a hard time ramping) A couple of toxic people in leadership who have begun to negatively...

    Advice to Management

    Hire carefully, not quickly Make sure your new hires are set up for success More manager training (not all successful ICs make great managers) Make sure to let go of toxic leaders - they are mostly amazing but the trickle down effect is really clear here as we are rapidly growing

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

    Pros

    Great team members - supportive and welcoming, good office perks and benefits

    Cons

    SDR Leadership is terrible - rude, unsupportive, and uses fear mongering as an attempt to motivate. Despite the other good aspects about working at Hired, I would strongly avoid being a SDR here, the team leadership makes it impossible to feel comfortable and happy at work. It's a dictatorship with no room for opinions, critical thinking and open discussion.

    Advice to Management

    SDR leadership needs to be addressed before an entire team move onto different opportunities

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

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Everyone is here to hustle, learn, and build a great product. Excellent product market fit that actually makes a difference for the teams we sell to. Office has nice perks and office operations staff are always throwing events for birthdays and happy hours. Pay is above market.

    Cons

    SDR Leadership is some of the worst I've ever worked for or with. Burn out culture is alive and well on the team, as motivation comes in the form of intimidation and bullying. Focus is put on activity metrics at all costs, which you'll be reminded of every day via individual slacks from Sr. SDR Leadership. Goals and your experience change based on your personal relationship with Sr. Leadership. If you're not on good...

    -Tons of change constantly which is both good and bad -Sales Leadership is largely inexperienced -Little SaaS experience amongst sales leaders -No 401K match -Sales organization is still establishing it's identity -E team has turned over a few times

    Advice to Management

    -The culture is going through some major shifts. Make sure to preserve some of the old in an effort to keep the magic that makes this place so special. -Executive and sales leadership specifically needs to get more in the weeds. The company is not yet mature enough to have leaders this far removed from the realities of what sales people are hearing from customers. Involve your selves more in the day to day of your teams/customers!...

    Advice to Management

    Be clear and concise with what the product strategy and company identity are. Stop telling everyone how quick we’re growing when revenue is actually flat and our total employee count dropped until recently. Don’t be so afraid to take risks - you are in no way the market leader. The product has actually regressed and become way too focused on one niche instead of taking advantage of market opportunities to expand in any...
