Does HubSpot offer massages?

Pros

I really like the emphasis HubSpot has made on making an inclusive and belonging environment. Compared to everywhere else I've worked, the company seems so much more accepting of people with a variety of expressions, backgrounds, and experiences. Management also acknowledges that there is always room for improvement (and continues to take action to improve). There are many opportunities to get involved in DI&B initiatives. There are a lot of perks like free food, dogs in the office, an onsite gym, working from home, and expensed team outings. I also view my coworkers as friends. My manager keeps my career growth in mind, and I receive clear and actionable feedback to work towards an eventual promotion. I also have a lot of independence to determine my own schedule/hours and the projects I would like to work on. Initially, I was skeptical of the Unlimited Vacation policy, but I have had no difficulty taking time off. My manager suggested taking off about 4 weeks per year + holidays which is more than what other companies I looked at offer for my role. I can also extend holidays by working remotely.

Cons

As HubSpot has grown, the culture and hubspotlife has not fully scaled. For example, the new office expansions (1C and 10C) have substantially fewer amenities and a much less social atmosphere than the main buildings. It's also been harder to sign up for traditions like Mystery Dinner and company outings. For software engineers, the work-life balance and burden of being on call can very greatly depending on the team. For example, some teams are almost never paged, while others are paged multiple times a day.

Does HubSpot offer dental insurance?

Pros

- Atmosphere: colleagues are all driven and nice, it's a great place to grow with good people. - Office: free lunches, vending machines with snacks, beer on tap, coffee machines galore, video games, hang out spaces etc. - Promotion path: relatively transparent for my role, with annual compensation increases as well even without a title promotion. Internal mobility is easy (albeit very competitive) too. I'm told salaries are slightly lower than elsewhere but bar the really big tech companies I haven't heard much examples of that. - Resources: You're given the resources to do your job, whether it's tools or the training to tackle problems. It's also very rare that too much is asked of you directly anyway. -Benefits: Pension scheme is decent (match your contribution), there's funds available to pay for education courses if you ask, the share scheme has been great given the company growth, health and dental insurance are very welcome, unlimited holidays means I never worry about stretching over my days (I take about 30 a year with no pushback at all). - Remote vs office: have always been allowed wfh the odd day, but now full remote is an option, or full office or a hybrid. You just need to pick one. Knowing I could move (even country) is great. Overall, working here has allowed me to really grow my career. I had no experience in tech before, but came through the support team which thought me a lot about HubSpot and the tech landscape, and was able to move on for a new role and skills (like many others from support). I've personally experienced a huge increase in salary too, and the shares have added to that and given me sums of money for a deposit that I thought impossible before. If you're coming from a similar (probably tech) company then these changes may not be as noticeable

Cons

- Lockdown: no office has removed some of what I loved about the work and the atmosphere. Hanging out with colleagues after work for drinks, or during for table tennis was a great way for work to feel more social and less of a grind. For some, remote work will be worth it but for me the office was a big plus. Remote work has been handled as well as it can be though, better than my of my friends or family in other companies report. - Challenging: whilst you're given everything to succeed there is a steep learning curve. The software is huge now, and if you haven't worked with this sort of online software before there's a lot of general tech info to catch up on too. You'll be given everything you need and so many people have skilled up in the process (incl me), but it's draining learning so much at times. - Work/life balance: Usually really good, managers and colleagues will stop you working too much. It's 100% not expected to work past 5pm (Dublin). They just gave the whole company a week off, too! However it doesn't always work that way when things are busy for you, and during lockdown in particular I think that has slipped more as we're not in the office to support each other on it. That has definitely made things more stressful for both myself and others at times (hence the need for the week off I think).

Advice to Management

Please don't abandon the office atmosphere and perks in favour of remote work when we are able to return. Remote has gone well but the office really adds something of its own.

Benefits: Pension scheme is decent (match your contribution), there's funds available to pay for education courses if you ask, the share scheme has been great given the company growth, health and dental insurance are very welcome, unlimited holidays means I never worry about stretching over my days (I take about 30 a year with no pushback at all).

Does HubSpot offer a wellness program?

Pros

Excellent benefits - (true) unlimited vacation, medical insurance, and generally good work life balance, tuition reimbursement (allows you to pick up a new skill), free books program. People of various backgrounds and nationality bring unique expertise for work and also vibrancy to the culture. The benefits also form a part of the culture for example, weekly meals and wellness weeks are often celebrated by the company. People are genuinely helpful, you can grow as much as you set yourself to.

Cons

Depending on the department you are in, it could lead to different experiences of team culture and management style. Some management styles do not suit certain individuals. However, this is something you can learn more of during the hiring process before making a decision (e.g knowing the direct manager you are working with, speaking to someone from HubSpot on the same role you are interested in). The manager you work under most directly influence your experience at HubSpot on a daily basis.

Advice to Management

Do not shy away from internal friction or close an eye to feedback, employees will always appreciate the management trying to resolve issues and acknowledging them, as much as there may be no solution at that point in time. We are doing well in many areas, but not getting complacent and continuously seek improvement will further enhance work culture for everyone to thrive in.

Does HubSpot offer life insurance?

Pros

The culture is unparalleled - supportive teammates, flexibility in working arrangements, respect for time off, ability to achieve 'work-life fit', free books and excellent health benefits. More than this, I appreciate how most people are willing to give and receive honest feedback. Expectations are high at HubSpot, but that's because we expect everyone to strive for excellence and perform at our best.

Cons

The Singapore office is still young and growing fast, so some processes haven't quite been figured out yet. Not all strategies from HQ in North America are directly applicable to the APAC market, so there's some work to be done in localising the business here.

life fit', free books and excellent health benefits.
