    I have been working at Huddle (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, fantastic teams and a solid product that is making huge waves in the industry. Sales are going through the roof with lots of big deals. Senior Management are all perfect in their roles and the company is still hiring to fuel strong growth plans.

    Cons

    3 global offices makes it more of a challenge to communicate wiwth colleagues, but with new video conferencing technology this is becoming easier.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Super hi-energy, enthusiastic company. It's a work environment that requires you to deliver at your highest potential and then some - exhausting & challenging, but highly rewarding! Excellent prospects for swift -as deserved - career progression! The market for cloud based content & collaboration solutions is expanding very rapidly! Senior mgmt is highly available to all employees & customers. They genuinely care about the detail of their people & operations.

    Cons

    This is still a small up & coming company that has not yet made it to the big leagues. With that comes all of the fast-paced, turn on a dime requirements and potential for unplanned changes.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on the nuts & bolts of what customer's need.

    Pros

    The company is made up of great people - intelligent, hard working and a lot of fun. The offices reflect the culture - they're bright, open and foster collaboration. And the perks are good - lots of free food and drinks, fun nights out, generous vacation days and healthcare provided.

    Cons

    Working across three timezones can be tough, so Californians can expect early morning meeting during the working week.

    Advice to Management

    Keeping the culture open and fun (whilst fostering hard work and success!) will be key.

    Pros

    Supportive structure. Have learnt a lot from the senior management team. I feel that people care about my success. Everyone knows who you are and you're not just a number. I know what I need to do to get my next promotion.

    Cons

    It's hard work! That can be rewarding, but it still means you’ve got to push yourself to succeed. Also, there were a couple of people here that were very negative because they weren't hitting their quotas. That worried me at first, until I learnt to ignore them.

    Advice to Management

    Don't put up with the negativity. If people are like that, they shouldn't be here. Morale improved as soon as they left.

    Pros

    Great being part of building this company. Definitely feels like more than just another job but more like we are creating something meaningful.

    Offices in UK and across the US gives plenty of opps to move around.

    Young and fun place to work and the food not too bad either!

    Cons

    Too much change and it would be good to have a more structured career plan

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the troops more and take some time to chill.......we all know its exciting but calm down a bit

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Huddle are a great employer. There is a fun working environment and only the best talent is hired. it's exciting to be part of the journey and see a small start up grow into a respected organisation helping hundreds of large organisations worldwide to work better together.

    Cons

    Rapid growth means some teams are still settling in and becoming effective.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the great culture is maintained as we grow and always seek to provide as much communication as possible between offices.

    Pros

    This is a great place to work as a developer, as you get to work alongside some really bright, friendly people. I'm learning loads, the work is interesting and you get quite a lot of freedom to influence the product.

    The company is going in the right direction and the market opportunity and potential is huge so the stock could be valuable. The culture is pretty open and transparent and the communication is good given the obstacles of having different offices.

    Cons

    Still some work to do to get rid of the old architecture, but getting there.
    Area around the new office location is pretty dead.

    Advice to Management

    We need more developers.
