    I have been working at Huddle

    Pros

    Huddle is a truly inspiring place to work. Exceptionally talented, determined team that really enjoy building and selling a product that makes an impact in the world of collaboration. Nice sized company with strong global presence. The management team is extremely talented and diverse. Great perks and good work-life balance. An all around great startup where employees work hard and have fun!

    Cons

    Early mornings to accommodate different time zones but that's normal in any company with offices and clients in different continents.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to attract and retain top talent to grow Huddle to its full potential.

    I worked at Huddle

    Pros

    Reasonably good idea that solved a problem validated by early momentum. Technology changed very little over time which stifled any chance of making an impact.

    Cons

    Very little accountability among the C-levels (who were all very junior). CEO was delusional.

    I worked at Huddle full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people in San Francisco, London, Washington, DC, and New York. Individual managers and growth opportunities solid (at the time).

    Cons

    Mission of the company is to enable people to collaborate better. The solution is simple, and honestly is behind where other larger collaboration platforms are now. Mobile interface simple and easy to use. Limited features and issues with scalability.

    Advice to Management

    Founders and C-suite management made the company come off as a visa mill for Europeans to the US.

    I have been working at Huddle full-time

    Pros

    The people who work at Huddle are amazing, all the office locations are great in good cities, and there is the ability to learn a lot if you work hard enough.

    Cons

    There has been a bit of attrition, and the bonus / comp structures need improvement. The product has not been very updated with big changes in a while.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to innovate the product and release bigger features, faster.

      Pros

      Great people, cool office, awesome space to work in, one of the most competitive SaaS verticals, a great place to gain experience and work with smart entrepreneurial people.

      Cons

      Competing against the highest burn rate companies on the public market who achieved scale through top line revenue growth at the expense of profitability -- a tough space to compete in as a smaller startup in a tougher funding environment.

      Advice to Management

      Focus on revenue, use data to drive decisions, and position for a sale or near-term profitability. Don't ignore the lower end of the market

      I have been working at Huddle

      Pros

      There are a lot of empty chairs if you need something to rest your feet on.

      Cons

      Antiquated software. Zero innovation. Terrible place to work. No energy. Tense office. People are leaving the company every week. The company plateaued 3 years ago and is starting to sink.

      Advice to Management

      Stop relying on suits and secret handshakes to sell technology. Dump some money into Silicon Valley developers rather than second tier UK developers.

        I worked at Huddle full-time

        Pros

        Great product! Company has wonderful benefits and perks. Seems that London and San Fran happy for most part, not so much in NYC and DC.

        Cons

        Management is non existent in remote offices. They cater to London and San Francisco. Almost everyone from when I was hired is no longer there. Zero training and support.

        Advice to Management

        Go back to how it used to be.

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

        Pros

        - Great vibe and energy of a startup - Awesome product - creating a whole new category in content collaboration - Terrific team - diverse team across 2 countries, loads of fun to work with

        Cons

        - Early start to accommodate meetings with London office. Not so bad for people who live in the city, but with a long commute it can be tough.

        Advice to Management

        Need to improve our marketing and sales execution. We are probably the best kept secret in the industry, just need to be more visible with potential customers.
