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

    Pros

    I have never worked at a company before this one that really honors, interrogates, explains, exemplifies, and lives their core values like this company does. Not only does every employee know them, but we know they are valued from the top, and we act in ways that uphold those values. It's actually pretty cool. As far as my job goes, the pros are that the engineering team is thoughtfully organized with process kept...

    Cons

    We work on Chicago time. I wasn't sure how that was going to go, but it has actually gone pretty well. But it's definitely something one should know coming into the job. Benefits didn't start until after 30 days of employment. That kind of sucked. The sales department style (numbers, encouraging words, celebratory graphs) is prevalent during the company-wide meetings, and while that isn't necessarily a common engineering...

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, I'm pretty impressed with the management here. I suppose I'd hope that they'd stay true to their commitments to stay true to the core values and to work real hard to ensure things stay cool as we get bigger. Because we're getting bigger. Also, remote/virtual work is totally something to keep in mind as we get bigger, but it's just something to plan for rather than to see as a barrier. So far, management...

    I worked at Hireology full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    They are highly conscious of company culture and how it is reflected in their people's behavior. Everyone takes "No A**holes" very seriously, which is a great thing. The culture is what I would call loose-but-accountable. There's not much micromanagement, but you have numbers and are expected to hit them. The company is growing very quickly. This keeps things fresh, the atmosphere is one of growth and positive...

    Cons

    As with any growing business this size, there are silos. I had a few occasions where I was let down by another department and found it difficult to even address the problem through the various levels of management. Growth comes with hits and misses. Hireology does a good job of identifying the growing-pains. However, there were issues that were swept under the rug rather than staring them down and addressing them immediately....

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, but remember where you came from. People first. There is a great deal of talent at the company, make sure to cherish them and foster their abilities. Bet heavily on your people and you will win.

    Thanks for the detailed feedback on your time working here. I think what you've shared is pretty spot-on. We expect a lot from people, and those expectations are high. When you meet those expectations, great things happen financially. As you point out, growth at this rate ...

    I worked at Hireology full-time

    Pros

    - Office views - Weekly company meetings - Some really nice, smart and caring people work there

    Cons

    - “Own the result” is a company value but very rarely do you find the right people owning process, communication or strategy - It’s a young company, so there is quite a bit of juvenile behavior on the floor for everyone to experience whether you want to or not (loud music being played at all hours despite people on the phone with customers, people vaping at their desks and drinking in large groups at 2 or 3pm any day...

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the assets you have based on their hard work and eagerness to innovate. If you put even a fraction of the energy behind supporting your CSMs as you do your sales reps, you can reduce churn and have a shot of hitting your financial goals. Train your sales people to understand what they’re selling and stop rewarding the awful ones with better books. Appreciate your biz ops team -they are overworked and overlooked...

    Pros

    No micro-management, very flexible work hours, competitive comp plans

    Cons

    Mediocre base-salary, training when I started was awesome but since the company has grown exponentially the training has gone downhill

    Advice to Management

    Would be beneficial to hire a sales trainer.

    Pros

    Have you ever been part of a group or team that challenges you to be the best version of yourself? That's what Hireology has been for me, a lot of professional and personal growth by being part of an ambitious team that is solving interesting problems at warp-speed. I learned more here in one year than I learned in 4 years of college and they encourage that learning and growth by giving you the space to try something...

    Pros

    I have been working at Hireology for close to 4 years now, and this is the second 5 star review I will be leaving. I have been promoted 6 times since my start, which is a true testament to how much opportunity this company offers to their individuals. Hireology truly cares about their employees on a granular level, which is tough to come by now a days. Leadership is not only incredibly transparent in all aspects of the...

    Advice to Management

    We are currently in a high growth stage (as expected) which has a lot of the managers stretched thin. My advice to management would be to delegate tasks (if possible) to their individual team members to allow managers more floor time as well as offer more experience to those who may want it.

      Hot coffee is a little weak but that’s the one and only complaint I have ever had. Everything else about this company is spectacular.

      Hireology provides the culture and energy of a fast growing start-up, with the stability and security that comes with being backed by large private equity firms. Upper management, starting with the CEO, is transparent in their vision and effective in their execution. The people who work here are hard working and truly abide by the company's 5 core values. Objective criteria for promotions ensures that everyone has the...

      The Auto industry, where the majority of Hireology's revenue comes from, is a very unique and sometimes stubborn industry to work with. While there's definitely money to be made there, its not an industry everyone will enjoy working in.

      A great culture built on transparency and accountability. Adam is a CEO who leads by example and is one of the hardest workers at the company.
