    I have been working at hipages full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people that work here make hipages what it is. A place that you like to go to in the morning. They really understand the concept of how valuable their staff is to them. There is hardly ever a week where our HR folks don't put up a little or big event for all of us. It’s important what you achieve, not where or when you do it. Which lets you as an employee manage your time within small boundaries and you don’t...

    I worked at hipages full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great office, Friday drinks, breakfast each day and cool mid year and end of year parties

    Cons

    Unrealistic targets with lack of leads, even if you do hit targets they increase them the following month so you paid the least amount of commission they can and there is a constant fear you will lose your job. Not a lot of recognition when you do hit your targets. Senior managers walk around watching to see if you are on the phones. The product is poor and when a customer wants to cancel because the see a drop in leads...

    Pros

    Weekly base and comms $

    Cons

    They are heavy on micromanagement regardless of previous experience. I have witnessed "sales people" telling customers " your doing this or we are cancelling your account and you can never use us again". They set up all of this culture in the office to hide how unhappy customers and employees are with the hipages experience. I have also witnessed customers calling up to cancel and management ignoring the request and...

    Great product that makes a difference. Some really talented people in Engineering and Product. Always someone smarter around me which makes me want to step up my game.

    Lots of directional changes lately, however I guess that is pretty common in growing tech companies.

    Keep on listening to your staff.
