    I worked at Hootsuite full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Couldn't speak highly enough about my 5 years at Hootsuite and would recommend the company to anybody considering an application or actively interviewing.

    - As I exceeded targets, opportunities to take on additional responsibility were presented to me and was promoted through the business on multiple occasions.

    - Had the opportunity to work in an International office and gain that experience as well

    - Absolutely loved the flat nature of the business and that any C-Suite leader had time to answer questions throughout the day.

    - Lastly, left the company with an amazing professional and personal network. The people are truly what make this organization so amazing

    Cons

    - Not many companies grow from 150 to +1000 employees in 5 years, which naturally causes some growing pains. The biggest recommendation I'd give to new employees is to take the initiative in shaping the direction of your career and seek out mentors that know how to navigate the hyper-growth. With such growth, it's possible that your next job doesn't exist yet. It's critical to have those conversations early to ensure all parties are aligned on where you want to go next. Not a Con, but rather a fun challenge to work through.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I went to the Hoothire event, and the friendliness seemed rather artificial: Time done? Thanks for your time, move along. Perhaps that's the point (considering how many people show up to Hoothire), but maybe extend the time a bit to let people show who they are; short time frames are in no way representative of each individual's personality.
