    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 for that. Over the past year, we have made tangible strides in our innovation methodology, and the learning is getting faster and sharper. We're much more customer-centric now, which is also leading to better results.

    The biggest pros in working at HubShout are:

    1) The close-knit team of people at the core of what we do. The entire management group has been with the company 3+ years, and in many cases, much longer. This has led to much lower turnover throughout the team, as well as more clarity and consistency in everyone's jobs. Also, every member of the management team was promoted from within. We all worked in the functional roles we now manage. We also have close relationships with many of our customers, which makes serving them so much more rewarding.

    2) The ability, which is strongly encouraged, to shape the direction of the company in both big and small ways. If you are looking to participate in helping to grow an already established company in the digital marketing space -- without putting up your own money or spending time pitching investors -- there is probably no better option in the Rochester area right now.

    Cons

    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.

    Also, although the entrepreneurial risk is mitigated -- it's not your monetary investment at stake -- there is still a risk/reward scenario at play. The starting salary won't be at the top end of the spectrum. It takes time and results to reap the rewards of the company's success.

    SEO Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at HubShout (Rochester, NY (US)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Interview was straightforward, basic entry level SEO. They first give you a small test-- it's okay to skip questions (half math / half logic). Do as many as accurately as you can in the time period and you'll be fine. The interview was primarily from a list of 10 or so questions with some room for conversation-- it was more to feel out my basic knowledge of SEO / marketing in general.
