    Their people focused culture is all talk

    Pros

    The product is great and you can work with some really smart people

    Cons

    The HR team disclose confidential discussions on a frequent basis and can be very underhand and unprofessional with exiting people without sound cause. There is a huge turnaround in staff, including management and c-level employees Management and c-level often make very emotional decisions and are not supportive when it comes to professional growth. They claim to be focused on people culture but there is little work-life balance - you may be able to work from home, but you are expected to always be working. It's dressed up as something Ryan likes to call 'grit'. About 60% of the people I worked with when I joined last year have been exited or moved on. The management and c-level team are very arrogant.

    Amazing place for amazing people

    Pros

    There are so many nice things about this company I cannot begin to list them. It's a very employee oriented organization and you'll really feel that your opinion matters, regardless of the position that you're in. It's also a place where you can grow as a person and career-wise and there's a learning curve and there are trainings and all kinds of team activities. I love working here and I totally recommend Hootsuite to all the awesome people out there.

    Cons

    Nothing that I can think of that cannot be fixed. As I said, the employee opinion matters and if there's anything that you don't like and you have a solution for that, it's always taken into consideration.

    Good Product. Decent People. Abysmal Remuneration at all levels.

    Pros

    > The people are generally great to work with. > People are open to collaboration and you can seek help or advice from anyone regardless of what team they're on which I love. > Both HQ and London offices are great spaces to work in. > Despite some customers who have an 'everything now' mentality the vast majority of customers love the product and are continually happy when we release new features.

    Cons

    > The standard of recruitment has dropped in the last 12 months as they seem to be happy to just hire people who can 'do' the job but don't really care about overall success of the company. > The cheapest company I've worked for in the last 10 years in tech. The salaries are abysmal and the benefits are non-existent. A few more benefits exist in HQ (yoga classes, free juice etc) but other regional hubs such as London get salary, healthcare and thats it. Sounds demanding but hate the game, not the player...this is way below tech industry standards. Telling managers to really sell the 'vision' during the recruitment process is all well and good but are employees expected to pay their rent in 'vision' at the end of the month? > Not very strong at retaining top talent. Losing some strong performers due to lack of process or will to keep them.

    Pros

    The people that I work with everyday are amazing and talented. They create a very safe space where I can innovate. The management is great as well! The culture in my team is something that is really unique and is one of the reasons I love working here.

    Cons

    I would like a little bit more investment in retaining the current employees.

    Good people but unclear career path

    Pros

    Great people and team. Managers on this team are good and most have been with the company for a while. Work life balance is good.

    Cons

    After a couple months in this role many people realize it is not what it was made out to be in the interview process. Not many perks or benefits for working at Hootsuite. CAE team is underpaid compared to industry standards

    Pros

    Cool entrepreneurial vibe, lots of flexibility in my hours, lots of room to try things - embrace failure & try again. Lots to do! Lots of opportunity to work in different groups.

    Cons

    Lack of overall company strategy. A CEO who doesn't seem to understand how to respectfully and thoughtfully grow with his growing company. Lack of commitment to really trying to achieve diversity and inclusion despite efforts from the HR team. Filling out a survey won't make us diverse or inclusive, nor will a class or two - it starts at the top and our top people don't seem to believe in this concept.

    Pros

    Flexibility, nice benefits, parties, getaways.

    Cons

    Managers and Directors don't really put as high priority making the department better and growing the team as they see them as a threat. Hard to move up. Ideas are not really taken into consideration.
