    I have been working at Hootsuite full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Our platform has come around in leaps and bounds in the past year, thanks to some very careful planning from our dev team and also from some brilliant acquisitions. Being in the Top Right of the Forrester Wave is just awesome. Yes our product went through some tough times as we rebuilt it - but oh my, it's formidable now - and that ranking really cements it.

    With that is coming some great confidence in the company, as we look to really take us to another level. We have a strong leadership team that is experienced, and I believe that we have weeded out some of the people that shouldn't have been here.

    Also benefits have improved a LOT, there is some way to go, but we have private medical, life insurance, pension, RSUs, options, dogs in the office and good amount of holiday.

    In EMEA I think we finally have a leader that can take us places. He gets social, gets people and also understands Enterprise.

    The CEO has great vision for the company, is inclusive, has a great team around him with more experience than ever before and is importantly open to criticism, comment and debate - we have great discussions with him directly on Workplace.

    There have been mistakes, and we have all learned form them, including him.

    Cons

    Although we have a pension in the UK it is the most basic one possible. Would be good to look at having something more standard in industry.

    Learning and Development is still lacking all over the company. There are no funds, and the in house courses are hard to come by, always full and no one ever knows about them. Also it's always delivered by internal people - we need to get real experts to deliver this and also have structure.

    There have been some strange hiring decisions, and promotions in the past - I think it is getting better now as the company really looks to try and focus on personal development more - still work to do there though.

    Advice to Management

    Don't always hire internally - get some more great experience from outside - but work more as well on helping us to learn more.
