    Ich habe bei HubShout gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    HubShout was a good experience overall. I think the best approach is to treat it like a paid internship -- that’s about as long as a lot of writers stay anyway. It’s not going to be a forever employer but it’s not a bad intro to writing etc., and probably no other place will ever ask you to write so much in a day so you’ll be prepped. I would say the company has a fair # of things that could be improved on. To their...

    One of the big points that made me realize there was an end time for my working there was the PTO. 12 days a year for sick/personal/doctors/vacation/*blizzards*(! I was mad to hear about friends having to drive in dangerous conditions when a work-from-home exception really should be granted... if something actually happened how horrible would that be??) is on the low side, especially when you have to accrue it and then...

    I never thought I would give this advice, but more management might help (or restructuring how it currently operates so that perhaps there is one company manager who does NOTHING but manage, and more team leaders focused purely on editing or directing AMs, whatever). Multiple times a manager would say “I’ll look into it” then forget to relay the message/concern/question and I’d have to follow up multiple times - etc....

    Ich habe für mehr als ein Jahr bei HubShout gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    The writers and account managers are very friendly, and it was a pleasure getting to know them. However, the only reason I (and probably other writers) continue(d) to stick around is because of the flexibility of being able to work from home. Working remotely and being able to build up a small portfolio (I do mean small - 99% of the work is ghostwriting) are literally the only redeeming qualities of this job. Don't...

    In all honesty, this job took away my passion for my craft and my confidence in myself. Here's why: Once you prove to management that you're a competent writer who can handle deadlines, they'll work you as hard as they possibly can by asking you to take on extra duties without any type of additional compensation, quota reduction, or even acknowledgement. You're expected to complete 45 articles ('tasks') per week, with...

    PAY YOUR WRITERS WHAT THEY ARE WORTH. To try to justify the measly $12/hr pay by simply dismissing the writer's job as "entry level" is an egregious injustice and an absolute slap in the face to the writers, virtually all of whom have a minimum of a Bachelor's degree. Some of the job description itself can be categorized as an entry level position, but the workload is not, by any stretch of the imagination, something...

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als 3 Jahren bei HubShout (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    In digital marketing, an industry with massive uncertainty, HubShout has zeroed in on two key pillars over the past two or three years that have it poised to grow and thrive -- focus on culture above all else and, flowing from that, adoption of the Lean Startup methodology to validate what's working and build upon those things. The focus on culture started first, so we're further down that path -- and being recognized...

    With any pro there is inevitably a flip side to the coin. With the uncertainty in the search marketing space, there are ups and downs with customer turnover, uneven growth, etc. Some people aren't looking for uncertainty or don't want to be focused on solving problems in their daily work -- they'd rather be shown a process and pointed in a direction. Work input = reliable success. And that's fair if that's someone's preference....

    Pros

    The upper management is on the ground floor (metaphorically) with the entire company, there is complete transparency in everything they do not just with their employees but with their clients as well. The culture is ever growing and improving. The team truly feels like a family.

      Pros

      Lots of social opportunities with a medium-size office full of friendly people. There are a few employees who don't participate in many social activities, but overall you'll enjoy the culture more if you get to know people. The workload is demanding, so procrastinators and slow writers beware. If you can handle the workload, the autonomy they give you is wonderful. Casual office as far as dress etc, but everyone is serious...

      Competitive pay and upward mobility are kind of limited right now since it's not a huge company. On the plus side, the company is developing specializations and micro-promotions, especially for content writers. Also, if you're mainly looking to pad your writing portfolio, this isn't necessarily the place for you. Since the company is white label, writers only get a byline for very select pieces and are essentially ghost...

      Honestly, this company is exploitative. They wring every ounce of creativity from the writing team, paying them an obscenely low hourly rate. Similar jobs will pay around $45k per year while hubshout barely pays half of that. If you want a raise you will need to throw away all of your already deteriorating social life and focus only on projects, 'innovation', and company values. The pay is ridiculously low, sure, but...

      Read this review. Take it to heart. This is not so much written for prospective employees as it is written for the sake of your hard working company. You were good to me for a short while and I would be remiss if I didn't at least offer you a fair and honest review of why I believe the writer's job is broken. Here are the things I hope you all take away from this review: --Compensate your writers. They do the heavy lifting....

      While HubShout overall can be an enjoyable place to work, especially for the young professional, the content writer job is difficult to sustain. Writers are required to complete a high volume of work in an unrealistic amount of time. Over time, this demand took a serious toll on my mental and physical health. While the management team was aware of this stress, there was no sense of urgency to change the writing quota...

      As a human and a professional, I want to encourage all managers to observe and listen to the writers. I know that my experience was not isolated, and I truly believe that writing for HubShout could be an enriching experience if the writers were valued. The reality is that the sheer amount of stress will drive writers out for years to come, and it's up to management to decide whether they want retention. I would also...
