    Pros

    Sprout Social has an amazing culture that promotes inclusiveness, opportunities, challenging experiences and a ton of fabulous perks. I've been at Sprout for a little over 6 months and have already experienced a ton of professional growth. The immediate group of people I work with are all incredibly smart and motivated, but beyond that every person that I've come in contact with is always looking to support in finding the right solution and pitching in. It has been an incredible experience so far to contribute to the work at Sprout Social!

    Cons

    I don't have any cons!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing :-)

    Pros

    Rapidly growing company with a great reputation and a lot of opportunity for growth if you're willing to be proactive

    Cons

    Leadership across the board is struggling to adapt and reporting structures no longer make sense. Everyone is vocal in recognizing problems but there's little opportunity to actually fix anything.

    Pros

    I'll be honest, I thought something might have been up by all the positive reviews on here but they are all so accurate it's so refreshing to see. There are so many good things going on here. We have an amazing executive team that has an exciting vision for the future, the training program is the best I've ever been through and the people here are actually rooting for your success. On top of the awesome culture, we have a state-of-the-art office, free lunch everyday, so many snacks, unlimited PTO and a generous policy to work from home when needed. Keep it up Sprout! So exciting to see what's happened and what's to come.

    Cons

    2017 was a massive growth year. Exciting with lots of moving parts. Know coming into this company you are walking into a company/role that is constantly evolving to get better.

    Advice to Management

    Justyn, pull some strings and allow a dog friendly office?!

    Pros

    Sprout is an awesome place to work. They hire internally and allow a lot of opportunity for growth and ownership. The culture is work hard play hard, and the perks make it easy to stay in the office over lunch.

    Cons

    Sprout is growing really fast now, so it's less of a startup than it used to be. Larger teams, less opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    + The leadership team is fair and transparent
    + Company culture is second-to-none, very respectful of all employees
    + Each of us is given the necessary tools and resources to do our job well
    + Incredibly generous PTO policy

    Cons

    As with many SaaS companies of similar shape/size, change is a constant. Those who aren't hard working/comfortable with that change need not apply.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on enabling and challenging your employees to be great!

    Pros

    The people are strategic, thoughtful, collaborative, passionate, creative, and kind. The company's values are lived, not just aspirational.

    Cons

    I'm sure there are negative moments, but I haven't experienced any yet. I've worked at a handful of Fortune 100s, a family-owned company, and two start-ups. They could all learn from the culture here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the path.
