HubSpot – Great Company Review

Hubspot

HubSpot is an inbound marketing and sales software company whose aim is to help small businesses to escalate quickly through new strategies that attract visitors and turn them into potential customers. This company is on the Glassdoor list of the Best Places to Work in 2018 and it has been awarded as one of the best workplaces for Millennials in the last two years. Even though this company was in the eye of the storm after the release of the book “Disrupted” by Dan Lyons, employees agree that HubSpot is an excellent place to work and they show it proudly on the internet.

A place to Start and Boost your Career

For young people finding a job is really hard, but HubSpot gives them the opportunity to start. From the beginning, this company provides the necessary tools to the employees so they can work on their own, and sometimes people learn more from this training than from many years of college education. They also understand the people’s desire of growing in their career, even if this process occurs in another company.

People with “HEART”

The academic record is important when it comes to hiring people, but at HubSpot your ability to share knowledge and work in a team is also important. So, the hiring process is a little bit unconventional. They focus on qualitative tests on character rather than brainteasers to have an insight into your personality. The company is looking for employees with HEART. This is an acronym for humble, effective, adaptable, remarkable, and transparent; these qualities are the foundation of HubSpot.

Time: The Best Reward

At HubSpot your effort is rewarded with something better than pay: Time. They don’t only offer flexible schedules and work from home, you can add unlimited paid time off, vacation, sabbatical and sick leave to the list of perks. If this is not enough, this company has on-site amenities including fitness center, nutrition consultation, nap room, nursing rooms, access to free food and the list goes on.

A Supportive and Inclusive Company

HubSpot is committed to promoting diversity. Here you are accepted regardless of age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, ability, or nationality. Programs like Women@HubSpot, People of Color at Hubspot (POCaH) and LGBTQ alliance are initiatives that empower employees and create safer and more comfortable work spaces. These programs include meetings, workshops, training, and networking events as well. The company also supports parenting so they promote activities like “Bring your kids to work day” or programs like ParenSpot.

Why work at HubSpot?

This company is everything that a “newbie” wants: it offers a friendly environment, it is inclusive, it has the aim to help other people grow (clients and employees), and it gives you the opportunity to start a career and receive training. HubSpot is also a great option for people with experience in the field who want to leave their comfort zone.
