Does HubSpot offer massages?

Pros

Good pay, free food, free coffee, free beer & hard cider, nice office, good healthcare. Company-hosted parties.

Cons

Open concept office for engineering team. No 401k matching. "Unlimited" PTO instead of a generous concrete amount of vacation time. You're expected to spend free time outside of work doing work. No QA. There are a lot of all-hands meetings where upper management spits out propaganda about how great the company is. Overall, it's a very fast-paced high-stress environment, where an engineer is essentially expected to perform the job of an engineer, QA, DevOps, L3 support, and a product manager, and be as efficient as if you were just an engineer. You'll randomly get assigned responsibility for supporting other teams' code running in production without being given any time to actually understand it.

Advice to Management

Hire QA. Hire DevOps. You have offices all across the globe, you can hire L3 support staff for 24/7 coverage instead of making individual engineers within a single time zone be on-call 24/7.

Does HubSpot offer dental insurance?

Pros

- Atmosphere: colleagues are all driven and nice, it's a great place to grow with good people. - Office: free lunches, vending machines with snacks, beer on tap, coffee machines galore, video games, hang out spaces etc. - Promotion path: relatively transparent for my role, with annual compensation increases as well even without a title promotion. Internal mobility is easy (albeit very competitive) too. I'm told salaries are slightly lower than elsewhere but bar the really big tech companies I haven't heard much examples of that. - Resources: You're given the resources to do your job, whether it's tools or the training to tackle problems. It's also very rare that too much is asked of you directly anyway. -Benefits: Pension scheme is decent (match your contribution), there's funds available to pay for education courses if you ask, the share scheme has been great given the company growth, health and dental insurance are very welcome, unlimited holidays means I never worry about stretching over my days (I take about 30 a year with no pushback at all). - Remote vs office: have always been allowed wfh the odd day, but now full remote is an option, or full office or a hybrid. You just need to pick one. Knowing I could move (even country) is great. Overall, working here has allowed me to really grow my career. I had no experience in tech before, but came through the support team which thought me a lot about HubSpot and the tech landscape, and was able to move on for a new role and skills (like many others from support). I've personally experienced a huge increase in salary too, and the shares have added to that and given me sums of money for a deposit that I thought impossible before. If you're coming from a similar (probably tech) company then these changes may not be as noticeable

Cons

- Lockdown: no office has removed some of what I loved about the work and the atmosphere. Hanging out with colleagues after work for drinks, or during for table tennis was a great way for work to feel more social and less of a grind. For some, remote work will be worth it but for me the office was a big plus. Remote work has been handled as well as it can be though, better than my of my friends or family in other companies report. - Challenging: whilst you're given everything to succeed there is a steep learning curve. The software is huge now, and if you haven't worked with this sort of online software before there's a lot of general tech info to catch up on too. You'll be given everything you need and so many people have skilled up in the process (incl me), but it's draining learning so much at times. - Work/life balance: Usually really good, managers and colleagues will stop you working too much. It's 100% not expected to work past 5pm (Dublin). They just gave the whole company a week off, too! However it doesn't always work that way when things are busy for you, and during lockdown in particular I think that has slipped more as we're not in the office to support each other on it. That has definitely made things more stressful for both myself and others at times (hence the need for the week off I think).

Advice to Management

Please don't abandon the office atmosphere and perks in favour of remote work when we are able to return. Remote has gone well but the office really adds something of its own.

Benefits: Pension scheme is decent (match your contribution), there's funds available to pay for education courses if you ask, the share scheme has been great given the company growth, health and dental insurance are very welcome, unlimited holidays means I never worry about stretching over my days (I take about 30 a year with no pushback at all).

Does HubSpot offer malpractice insurance?

Pros

1) Culture Code - Everyone is NICE! I have not encountered gossip or back-stabbing. This could be due to being remote, but either way, it's fantastic. 2) Benefits - great pay, 401k match, stock options, good insurance. 3) Remote work - provides top of line hardware plus remote stipend to setup office. 4) Autonomy in this dept. to perform job using personally selected tools

Cons

1) Autonomy mentioned above can create a challenge when getting started and trying to figure out the best practice for the role.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing. Just like HubSpot solves for the customer, I feel that People Ops solves for the employee. You do a great job making the employee feel valued and special.

great pay, 401k match, stock options, good insurance.
