    Great company to work for that is solving difficult problems

    Pros

    The people and culture at Sprout Social are amazing. There's a great sense of camaraderie and respect among team members, which creates open dialogs throughout the organization. On the engineering team, we are challenged to solve difficult problems and are given the time to build things the right way, which is highly valuable. I like that we continually improve our day-to-day process as we see problems/inefficiencies; it's a very agile way of becoming a better group of engineers. Lunches, snacks and drinks are provided by the company. Monthly happy hours allow us to meet new team members and catch up with other employees over a beer.

    Cons

    Nothing that is specific to the company... perhaps the fact that Chicago is cold in the winter.

    Pros

    Sprout Social is an organization that cares so deeply about all their employees, and it shows. I have been with Sprout Social for a number of years and have had the opportunity to watch as the team, product and management have matured into a true market leader in all categories. The organization is one that likes to lead the industry and try new things, allowing their employees to prosper.

    Cons

    Some teams can scale quickly which makes it difficult for individuals to always know what will be happening within the long term, but for those with faith in the organization, this isn't much of an issue at all.

    Best job I've ever had

    Pros

    I've worked at many companies, small and large, and Sprout Social has easily been the best job I've ever had. The culture is great, the people are great, the work is challenging, and the job is rewarding. It doesn't get much better than here. Sprout Social genuinely cares about the employees, and goes above and beyond to assure they are happy. They are continually setting up new employee programs, and focusing on career growth for everyone who works here. Sprout is very flexible for your work/life balance, as well.

    Cons

    While transparency is a large value at Sprout Social, I think they could continue to improve on it. It's always hard with larger companies, but it's something that Sprout could continue to work on.

    Unbelievably Amazing Company To Work For

    Pros

    I continue to pinch myself often that I get to work at such an amazing place like Sprout Social. First and foremost, how leadership prioritizes its employees is a quality about Sprout that has gone unchanged since I started here. It's a people-first organization and the culture is unparalleled. Take care of yourself and your family, so you can be your best self at work. Aside from that, we have great benefits, amazing leaders, a product that can't be beat, difficult but achievable metrics, smart people who love to solve hard problems, and coworkers that care deeply about each other both in and out of work. Despite going remote during the pandemic, Sprout has found ways to adapt and support its people. This is a company that works through change in a respectful and thoughtful way. I am proud to be an employee of the organization and I imagine I will be for a while longer.

    Cons

    Can't think of any at the moment.

    Hands Down - Best Company in Chicago

    Pros

    I have been at Sprout Social for a while now and I have grown more and more proud of this team. Here are a few reasons: 1. Despite growth in company size, Sprout has always looked out for its employees - great benefits and events, solid career growth opportunities, incredible coworkers. You are treated as an adult and trusted to do your work. 2. Management - I can't say enough good things about the managers, directors, VPs, and C-level folks. They understand the importance of transparency in an organization and will keep their teams updated on road map items and any upcoming changes. They are approachable and care about you as an employee. 3. You have a voice here - your personality, skill set, and opinions are celebrated at Sprout. The team is encouraged to speak up. 4. The product - Sprout Social is a product that is making a difference in how a business and their customers communicate. Feels good to know that we are building, marketing, and selling a tool that is HELPING people. 5. The people - I have the good fortune of working with such smart and GOOD people that I genuinely enjoy. We get to know each other (and each other's families) very well. We are given the opportunity learn from one another. 6. The office - we have just moved in to a beautiful new space that is built to support collaboration. Plus, it's filled with personality.

    Cons

    -No major cons! During my time here, anything that could be considered a con has gone away - longer parental leave, extensive manager training, 401k match now exists.
