    Pros

    Working at Sprout has changed a lot even in the past year and a half. As a company, we're experiencing a ton of growth, but it's not coming at the cost of slowed productivity or general confusion among Sprout employees. There's an open culture of collaboration and well-being - it sounds cliche but every employee at Sprout is valued and I think the company does a great job of demonstrating this (not just talking about it twice a year.) Additionally, there continues to be paths for career development. If you take your work seriously and perform at a high level, you will be recognized.

    Plus, the fancy new office, free lunch choices, and stocked cafe don't hurt :)

    Cons

    The only 'con' that I feel important to list that Sprout is a place for people that are agile and willing to make changes on the fly. Because we're going through a growth period, the environment can feel overwhelming for folks that can't adjust quickly.

    Growth can sometimes come at the price of productivity and culture so I’m glad to hear that isn’t the experience here at Sprout. We work hard on that concept of open communication (obviously) and... More

    Pros

    This is and will be one of the best jobs i've ever had. Great environment, inspiring, full of wonderful culture, tons of room for personal and professional growth, so many networking opportunities and provides a range of experiences. Great people who care about their employees.

    Cons

    There are very few. The growing pains of growing are all good problems to have.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to the open communication theme, it serves the company well.

    I have been working at Sprout Social full-time

    Pros

    Transparent culture. Intelligent and communicative leadership. People who care for the right reasons. Good work/life balance. Excellent training for new hires. The people. Perks (breakfast + lunch + snacks + LaCroix provided each day, 401k, unmonitored PTO, health benefits are world class). Fair compensation. Never satisfied and always hungry mentality/culture. Everyone's ideas are welcome. Sense of trust and respect amongst colleagues.

    Cons

    Company is in a rapid growth stage, which comes with alot of change; if you are looking for established processes and day-to-day or are unable to adapt with change, it may be difficult to keep up.

    Not currently a clear career projection path for low to mid-level employees, but noticeable changes to this are already happening/on the horizon.

    Not alot of cons ATM.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Thank you for taking the time to write a review. You hit on one of my favorite parts of Sprout’s culture–the “sense of trust and respect amongst colleagues.” I also appreciate your feedback on career... More

    Pros

    Sprout has been a fantastic place to learn and grow in my career.
    - opportunities to do/build new things
    - great benefits package (that keeps growing as the company and team grow)
    - smart, fun, driven colleagues
    - the office is SO NICE

    Cons

    There aren't many to point to. Something the team continues to think about is how to scale communication as we grow - a natural challenge in growth that it is clear they continue to tackle. Keep on going!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and continue to incorporate feedback to make Sprout even better!

    I have been working at Sprout Social full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The opportunity within the space, and specifically within the company - it's just the beginning at Sprout. The people and the culture they/ we create is truly awesome. The office itself (snacks, drinks, free lunch) is pretty inspiring. It's a very 'humble' group as well, something you don't see often in tech, especially within a company as successful as Sprout is, and will continue to be.

    Cons

    With opportunity, brings work. Busy times at Sprout.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on. Continue to hire, and as the company grows continue to be as transparent as possible. Continue to keep culture and people a focus with all the growth, as tough as that may be.

    Pros

    I love the team I work on, both managers are the best I have ever worked with.
    The opportunity to grow within the team and at Sprout is definitely there
    This a sales person dream job, in my opinion

    Cons

    We are a growing team, which is great but with growth comes changes. Almost every month we go through a change, but it's not necessarily for the bad... things are just not always consistent.... you have to be okay with change!!!

    Advice to Management

    Nothing at the moment. We have weekly meetings with our managers and this is where we can voice our opinions about anything, very transparent meetings!

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

    Pros

    Sprout is unlike any tech company I have worked for in my tenure. Both in the cultural aspects as well as the engineering aspects.

    - It is truly an open communication and information culture. Where some say they are, Sprout is actually is what it describes as itself.
    - The leadership and cultures is supportive in both your professional and personal pursuits. Be the best you can be both professionally and personally.
    - Work-life balance is one of the best I have seen in the business.
    - Leadership is engaging and available, they truly care about the people and the company.

    Cons

    Like most tech companies they share common misconceptions about aspects of engineering. This may be a con to some roles.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. More standing desks would be nice.
