    I have never been more excited about working for Sprout Social

    Pros

    - I love our customer support team even more than our customers do - Parental leave benefits have been improved to 16 weeks regardless of primary or secondary caregiver designation - Incredibly talented and passionate coworkers - Very bright future - Great work life balance - Well-supported Diversity Equity and Inclusion initiatives - Improving workplace empathy, generosity, feedback, growth and camaraderie - Lots of opportunity for career growth or specialization for those who thrive with more singular focus - Core values are admirable and ambitious - Savvy PMs who have strong product knowledge, help triage issues, and can even provide insight and guidance for feature work

    Cons

    - Projects across teams are sometimes painful, but this an understood area for improvement within the company. - The wide variety of ways that our customers use our application can cause some projects to have a long tail of feature refinement and revision which can feel less rewarding than net new work. - Balancing the demands of technical debt and feature work has been difficult. - Some teams feel understaffed in relation to the outsized usage and visibility of the features that they develop and maintain. This is especially true when it comes to the support rotation. - Relationships between teams could be better. Years of specialized product focus has caused us to grow further apart than the crazy days when there was 1 team for everything.

    Pros

    For context, I came from a 1k+ operation where everyone was a number to a connected family that looks after each other. Even with my past experience prior to the operation I was working with, Sprout Social's standard is incomparable. It's one big happy family, all pulling on the same rocket ship to deliver an outstanding software to people who are looking to bridge an authentic line of communication between their company and their fans. Work wise, everything is manageable as long as you are true, dedicated and passionate about what you do. The company goes above and beyond to support your work/life balance and provides you with flexible options for work time and workplace. Also, there is no learning curve. Due to how the start-up nature of the company, you are consistently learning and it is always the case that you find yourself adding more and more experience to both the product and your core work. That's why everyone in Sprout is 'Always be growing'. In a nutshell, you are given all the resources needed to do your job: hardware, software, coaching, peer support, communication, documentation. All it takes from your end is to be involved and to look forward to pull in the same direction. Given the nature of this company, that shouldn't be a problem. Perks wise, training is done in Chicago for 3 weeks, flight and accommodation provided, then back at the office in Dublin. The office is great! Lunch provided through Deliveroo, so you you'd be able to order what you want. Snacks also available in the office and we occasionally have the traditional beer o'clock throughout the week. Improvement is easy to suggest, you have a direct link to engineers via internal tools and it really feels that your work is truly building this software over and over again. All in all, work here is meaningful and fun!

    Cons

    Ramp up may depend on personal ability to assimilate a large volume of information. Sometimes, some processes may be vague, but luckily you have other team members you can rely on for support.
