    Cons

    If you think there are any legitimate 'cons' to working at a place like this, you have lived in one pretty sheltered bubble your whole life my friend. I would encourage you to get out into the world and gain some perspective.

    Pros

    - Great culture and benefits - Very clear growth path. You will be given all the opportunities you need for your career - Work whenever you want, wherever you want

    Cons

    - Despite being a customer oriented company, most of the people focus too much on features instead of improving stability - Working with other teams is not always easy, as some people are not very friendly and will discourage you from making questions

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

    Pros

    As a software engineer with years of experience, I find HubSpot offers a refreshing lack of busy-work. No deadlines, no release management, no all-day sprint planning, no daily stand-ups and no sprints for that matter. We work as small teams with great autonomy. I can push my work into production any time I am ready, as soon as I am ready, and only when I am ready. Getting my work done is practically frictionless. HubSpot...

    Cons

    This is not necessarily a "con" for everyone, but HubSpot's employees tilt rather young. Some might be uncomfortable with this atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on truckin'. You're doing something right.

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

    Pros

    HubSpot moves fast and invests in its people. While at HubSpot I have seen a massive effort to improve internal tools and to ensure people have what they need to get the job done. You are able to make a large impact because you are responsible for what you do and you own the things you are working on.

    Cons

    Things can get hectic very quick as things move fast and if you aren't into that it could be an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Keep taking care of your employees!
