Administrator (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 16 May 2018
Hootsuite is still a very young company that needs to understand how to continue to grow and manage to retain good employees. They suffer from lack of planning and don't support their lower level managers enough. Overall, I thought this was a great place to work for the short term but in the long term, I believe it's important to be part of a company that provides the resources to support its employees success in their roles and also acknowledges hard work through internal promotion.
Great employees, free fruit, cool office space, social events and fun central location
Lack of management support, advancement opportunities, processes & procedures and communication
Executive (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 November 2017
A typical day at work starts at 8am for AEs and about 10am for all other staff. The culture of continuous learning is non existent and is largely due to the management who are more Salesforce admins than leaders.
Writer / Content Marketer (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 7 April 2016
I started at Hootsuite when there were 20 or so people. I left when there were over 800. As a result, I received an education in business, marketing, product development, and entrepreneurship that is akin to completing an MBA. My focus was on marketing, and specifically content and branding. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the incredibly fast pace and change that occurred in a company scaling as fast as we did. The best part of the job was the insanely steep learning curve.
