    I have been working at HubSpot full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Completely results driven promotion structure - if you perform you get promoted period. Typically use to the politics behind in-line promotions from other sales organizations so it's a breath of fresh air to know if you bring value to the company, are a high-producer and a good person to work with you will be rewarded. I really love the people I work with.. we higher on culture really well and i've seen fantastic...

    Cons

    HubSpot has traditionally hired a certain type that really want to over-perform - but this has resulted at times in a sales org that doesn't take as many breaks as necessary. We have unlimited leave (completely paid for) but not as many people feel OK to take it . Very sales driven org and have seen examples of a top sales rep get away with a lot more discrepancies then typically would be allowed. Really reminded me...

    Advice to Management

    Keep the heart of HubSpot Sydney there People want to be inspired or aspire to be like their execs, as such management needs to always be held to a greater standard and contribute to growth of the employees. You want to look at management and see examples of people to aspire and look up too.

    I have been working at HubSpot full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good place to work for, great benefits and recently fixed pay so you can expect to be happy from a compensation perspective. If you’re a high achiever, expect good stock incentives, commission and international travel perks, some of the best I have seen. You can expect some fairly good flexibility when it comes to taking extended holidays, time off and working away, depending on the manager. Really good senior leadership...

    Cons

    Hubspot ANZ focuses too much on internal hiring, which naturally results in the wrong people for the job. HubSpot does a really bad job at sourcing for managers externally, some of the worst I have come across. Expect your manager to be incredibly green / new and rely on good reps to mentor you. If you expect the manager to guide you, you will fail in this setting as you will feel like you’re teaching them how to manage...

    Advice to Management

    We have a great educational fund that can be used to up-skill, yet 4 new managers and no one has used it? To me, this makes no sense. It almost defeats the purpose of having this incentive. We need to relax on culture and focus more on productivity, rep development and sales. We are in sales, not PR. I don’t care if we have free drinks and boat parties if we miss target and have to have stupid conversations about it...

    I worked at HubSpot full-time

    Pros

    - Good Culture - Fast Paced - Good benefits / perks

    Cons

    The company has become essentially a frat house. No diversity when it comes to age groups, they simply want to hire the youngest people they can exploit. Unfortunately, the interview process when you eventually get through is a nightmare. They have the most drawn out interview process in the world, and make you jump through so many hoops only to earn a below market salary. They can do this because they make up for it...

    Advice to Management

    Streamline your interview process to respect peoples time, and pay your staff above market rates. Culture only goes so far when you're working in a frat house.

    Disappointed to hear this feedback, thank you for sharing it. Our sales compensation is competitive and we regularly look at market rates and industry data to ensure it's benchmarked appropriately, so I'm not sure where the context on compensation is coming from, but either way it ...

    I have been working at HubSpot full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Before I joined I was skeptical about the culture and perks being a ploy to mask a less-than-ideal place to work (as is the case with lots of companies) but HubSpot really delivers on its promise of a fantastic culture. What most people are most attracted to (unlimited vacation etc.) is actually not what keeps me in my job. I get to work with the best group of people, both here in Sydney and all over the world in...

    Cons

    HubSpot is full of super talented, ambitious people and it can be easy to feel like you're not good enough (imposter syndrome is at an all-time high working here!) I find my work-life balance has ups and downs. Sometimes I'm flat out and all I think about is work, but on the flipside, I never get downtrodden by it as I have the best team and we're all in it together. The fact I'm able to manage my own schedule (when...

    Advice to Management

    Keep the bar for talent exceptionally high as we grow -- it's what makes HubSpot such a valuable learning experience for anyone working here.

    I have been working at HubSpot full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Hubspot uses the product they sell. That says a lot Amazing individuals work here - they're all very hard-working, supportive and fun Huge opportunities for growth and promotions - Everything is very transparent

    Cons

    It's a fast-paced culture, so the on boarding can feel overwhelming. But that's really the same with any job, right?

    Advice to Management

    Continue fostering the high-paced, motivated atmosphere that Hubspot rewards but continue making it feel like a safe space to work, a place where failure is accepted and human weakness/errors aren't causes for embarrassment or shame.

    I have been working at HubSpot full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    HubSpot has done an amazing job at balancing what's important. There's so much autonomy within the organisation, paired with carefully thought-out and rolled-out processes. I started as an Inbound Sales Coordinator and am now in a Principal BDR role. The promotion path in sales is incredibly transparent, and hard work is both recognised and rewarded. My managers have challenged me and been incredibly supportive since...

    Cons

    There isn't a tonne of opportunity for frequent international travel as a BDR/sales rep here. Only a con if you want to travel for work!

    Pros

    Hubspot is a company that really thinks about how modern people work, how to get the best out of them and how to ensure they feel fulfilled in their role. Read the Culture code to get a feel for what Hubspot is about. I've now been an employee for a year and I can tell you that they really do stick to their culture code and when they don't, they admit it and work to correct it. So many pros! - Recognition...

    None that I have experienced so far. If you have a problem, you have many avenues to voice your opinion. Quarterly employee NPS, weekly feedback apps or you could just talk to your manager, who is always willing to listen and help.

    I have been working at HubSpot full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Amazing culture - Made me a better professional from day 1 - Best perks (Unlimited holidays, flexability to work from home as long as you get the work done etc) - HubSpot's culture is well known but Sydney's culture is something different all together. Amazing - The thorough recruitment process means everyone in the office is on the same page and working towards the same goal

    Cons

    - It's not a 9-5 job, you're constantly plugged in - You have to bring you A game every day as everyone is extremely talented (not necessarily a con if you have what it takes!) - Daily pressure from multiple accounts

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management would be to listen to the changing needs of a growing office. 30 people is very different to 60.
