    Pros

    The team is filled with passionate and hard-working people, the co-founders foster a positive environment and strive for employees to have work-life balance by offering flexible schedules. There is variety in the type of work to be done, with opportunities for growth and advancement.

    Cons

    Communication can sometimes be a challenge with a remote team, but efforts are made to ensure this is constantly being improved upon.

    Pros

    The product/app is actually a good idea.

    Cons

    - Terrible communication between different levels of management - Too many big egos at play pretending to know things without actually knowing them - Manual and outdated tech stack - Blind points among the founding team causes them to get defensive about their actions even when asked simple questions by employees - Little to no training provided followed by unrealistic expectations with the resources employees are armed with - Low pay within the ed-tech industry

    Pros

    Supportive but super hardworking team - everyone is great to work with.

    Cons

    The fast growth of a startup keeps you busy and makes you pivot to different tasks often.

    Pros

    Co-founders are hardworking, but firm believers in work-life balance. Love the autonomy with the role and always feel like my voice is valued and considered.

    Cons

    Work ebbs and flows so sometimes the days are longer than others. I don't really consider this a con, but more of a "comes with the territory" of being at a high-growth start-up. Co-founders always give me my time back after pushes, but it can be slightly draining while going through it.

    Pros

    There are so many opportunities to grow and expand in Hoot. As a start-up, there are many newly created positions regularly, so if your work feels repetitive, and you want a change, there are a lot of options. The inclusive nature of the workplace and the strong female leadership are true assets that are hard to find elsewhere.

    Cons

    No health benefits yet, but it's a young company
