An Insider's view of HG Insights

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The open space generates a contagious buzz with high energy. It's easy to bounce ideas off the people around you, and the comradery of the team makes it fun to be a part of a driven winning culture. HG is a very tight-knit company where we work hard and celebrate our wins together (by ringing the bell on the wall!) Having the furry pups is a bonus!


Enterprise Account Executive

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

HG Insights has so many opportunities to collaborate not only across development teams & business functions, but with a diverse global team made up of the most amazing people. With a hybrid structure a lot of this collaboration happens online, and HG has made efforts to bridge the divide to make everyone feel connected.


Sr. Product Manager

What does career growth look like on your team?

Leaders work lock-in-step with their HR sponsors to foster, and further nurture, talent. Be it through a robust quarterly feedback loop or through individualized coaching, team members are encouraged to advance their professional aspirations. At HG it’s not so much about managing human capital, more-so about investing in the capacity of people.


Manager, Customer Success

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Give people a challenge and let them do their thing. I’ve always been impressed with the results when you leave the ‘how’ up to individuals when solving a complex problem. They almost always think of interesting and efficient ways that would never have occurred to me, and the sense of discovery and accomplishment is priceless.


EVP, Marketing

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

HG allows for a great work-life balance w/ remote work opportunities, unlimited PTO (15 days mandatory a year). HG ensures its employees are never overworked keeping in mind their mental & physical wellness, & that we are always feeling personally and professionally satisfied. Gives the feeling of accomplishment while allowing you to enjoy life!
