Freedom to work independently

I was disappointed, based on other work-from-home roles I've had, I expected to have more control over my schedule, but they have constant video meetings, sometimes as early as 7:30 in the morning! It's really challenging to find time to actually do your job in between all the meetings. There were some days when I had literally a 1.5 hour window without any meetings, yet I was expected, judged and measured by the expectation of putting in a full 8 hours worth of work.

Gender Equality

Most managers and leaders I met were women. My boss, her boss, her boss, the VP, all women. Definitely no gender disadvantage

Attitude towards older colleagues

I encountered many on the sales side of the organization who were quite a bit older, and they were treated with respect at all times. This is one of the company's best attributes.

Overall compensation for your work

It's a joke. The base pay is barely anything, and the "commission" during the first 3 months was 175 a week.

Office / Work Environment

Everyone I encountered was professional and respectful. There was some busy work that felt demeaning.

Company Image

A lot of businesses I walked in to, as soon as I said Hibu they shut down and would not talk to me because of bad experiences with the company in the past. Seems they over promise and under deliver

Workplace Safety

On days when the weather was very dangerous and everyone else I knew had a snow day and the state had declared an emergency, Hibu still expected sales reps to be out driving around. In meetings the managers would actually talk about preparations like bringing extra blankets, food, water, with you in the car. As if selling someone some f'ing digital advertising is so important that you should risk your life. You're not a heart surgeon. You don't need to go out in dangerous weather. Also they expect you to work when you're sick. It's like a badge of honor, people showing up for work and talking about how sick they are but they still made it in!! because they're such a trooper

Inclusive / Diverse

Hardly at all

Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire professionals who don't need hand-holding and let them be free to work, rather than nitpicking on metrics that emphasize quantity over quality

What I like about the company

They really strive to provide an environment of support. It's a great job for someone young with little experience who wants to get into the corporate scene and learn a lot

Company Culture

Toxic environment. employees are Told they are replaceable and management doesn’t have best interest at heart. Everything sent overseas so Customers cancel quickly because of bad quality And being misled.

Support from management

Managers are terrified to be truthful To upper management so employees get hit the hardest

Teamwork

Coworkers make the job bearable

Freedom to work independently

Very micromanaged culture

Attitude towards older colleagues

Management won’t hesitate to demote or force out anyone that doesn’t go along with the poorly thought out plans.

Career Development

Process will change monthly so no one really knows what they are doing

Overall compensation for your work

No compensation for increase in work

Office / Work Environment

Construction site on the job toxic fumes and chemicals in the air because building was being renovated during work hours

Environmental Friendliness

people Allowed to smoke directly in front of building entrances

Work-Life Balance

Management will pile on as much as they can without extra compensation. You will do the job of 3 employees for the pay of 1.

Job Security

Frequent layoffs

Challenging Work

Lots of people quit or go on medical leave since work is very challenging and they are stressed

Suggestions for improvement

  • Sell the company or close it

What I like about the company

Nice coworkers

What I dislike about the company

Micromanaged and no direction. Throw it on the wall to see if it sticks and if it doesn’t then blame the employees

Suggestions for improvement

  • Holding the sales team more accountable for selling to customers who are not a good fit for our products and for setting false expectations about what our products actually can and cannot do. A better reward system where people get rewarded for good work that they have so tell over versus removing or taking away if they don't meet a certain percentage

What I like about the company

None outside daily job duties and employee interaction, co workers make the job more bearable

What I dislike about the company

Bonus program and holding individuals accountable for cancellations where the clients stop paying their bills or when it's a bad sale to start and we try to save it but can't because the sales rep set wrong expectations from the start. Seems like the company just wants to sell anything to anyone regardless of if it's a bad customer where they don't understand the product or don't have a legitimate business.
