    I worked at hipages full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great office, Friday drinks, breakfast each day and cool mid year and end of year parties

    Cons

    Unrealistic targets with lack of leads, even if you do hit targets they increase them the following month so you paid the least amount of commission they can and there is a constant fear you will lose your job. Not a lot of recognition when you do hit your targets. Senior managers walk around watching to see if you are on the phones. The product is poor and when a customer wants to cancel because the see a drop in leads you lose that sale. The environment is very stressful.

    Hi, Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback. I acknowledge that sales roles can be tough and are definitely not for everybody. I'm really sorry you found the role so stressful. We will definitely look more into the sales environment and processes to see if your experience is shared by others and what we can do to support our sales team more. Kind Regards, Jodette Cleary - Chief People Officer

    I worked at hipages full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Sugar-fueled breakfast foods up for grabs A vending machine also full of sugar Some genuinely nice people in the company Fun events Nice-ish office Comfortable lounges for naps Fluro orange shirts are given to new starters - they do a good job of making you an eyesore/blinding anyone who looks at you when you leave the office on your lunch break

    Cons

    As the company gets bigger it's no longer a flat structure so there's definitely people who will look at you like you're a minion Marketing and growth teams are given ambitious targets for very little reward Marketing team has to be one of the most dysfunctional teams I have ever worked in, mostly due to poor leadership Pay sucks, unless you're a "Head of," "VP" or "C-level" exec Leaders are constantly time poor, which makes for an uninspiring environment where many of us felt we weren't able to learn It's not a culture where you can openly express an unpopular opinion about how things are run

    Hi, thanks for your feedback. I am sorry to hear you did not have the best work experience with us. I thought I should point out for others reading your feedback that we offer healthy breakfast, a range of cereals, a range of different types of bread, condiments, yoghurt, fruit juice and fresh fruit. We also have multiple avenues for feedback , with regular pulse surveys, anonymous questions for our monthly townhall and an ipad set up in the dining room for 'in the moment' feedback too so I am sorry to hear you did not feel you could provide your opinion. Kind Regards, Jodette Cleary - Chief People Officer

    I worked at hipages

    Pros

    Free Breakfast Central Location. Entertaining colleagues. Reception staff. And that is about it.

    Cons

    Role was not as advertised. No support from management. Working in a highly pressurised environment and just left to get on with it. There is a "cult like" atmosphere about hipages. You can only talk about how great it is. All the time. - see all previous reviews! The product itself is shocking. Promises the world, delivers nothing and is a big con. My advice? Only work here if you have no soul and can cope with being indoctrinated into a cult.

    It is unfortunate you did not have a great experience with us, and sometimes people and companies don't 'fit'. We encourage you to contact our People & Culture team if you would like to raise any specific issues. We also note that 90% of our team recently surveyed say that hipages is a Great Place to Work, and we wish you all the best in finding a better fit for your career.

    I have been working at hipages full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    hipages is big on internally promoting and management are willing and keen to help you succeed. You get out, what you put in. No matter your job description, your idea is always heard and encouraged. The office culture is always buzzing, people are always working together and socialising, there are loads of employee benefits, hipages supplies breakfast options, there are always events and

    Cons

    It's a fast pace work environment and things can change at any minute - but if you thrive on a challenge and can adapt with the company, you're sure to enjoy it.
