I worked at Social Native full-time for more than 3 years. I worked here when the team was less than 20 employees. I have seen every opportunity for improvement and growth squandered and devastated by the CEO himself, he is his own enemy. He loves his ego more than anything and anyone else. He has no idea who actually brings value to the company simply because he does not care. David Shadpour the CEO favors employees that brown-nose him and will protect employees that do not speak up against him. I cannot advise strongly enough to avoid this company at all costs. Leave now before the company goes under.
The CEO David Shadpour’s has a terrible inability to allow more competent executives to make decisions. All resignations are because of the inability to work with the CEO. Chief Officers have left for the very same reason. Stock was inflated for founding employees to prevent purchase. Salary is way below market rate despite funding rounds that could invest in employees and technology. CEO cannot lead one bit and compromises on company culture, employee well-being, and company vision for his own ego. Toxic environment, no vision, no path to success. CEO ego trumps everything. DO NOT TRUST ANYTHING THE CEO SAYS!
The company needs to be revamped. David Shadpour is running the company badly, and the investors need to step in and take control of him before he destroys the whole business.
The concepts and ideas are unclear, rushed, dropped, before they are fully fleshed out. We had so many good solutions that we were only allowed to execute halfheartedly and then they would be given up on before we could reach an accurate read on performance. There is a lack of communication, support and understanding between teams. The environment was not conducive to collaboration. Their selling tactics are highly questionable. There is a lack of transparency from the CEO David Shadpour himself, the truth had to be deciphered from multiple sources at times.
I am compiling reviews of other employees too so you can all know better when it comes to David Shadpour and Social Native.

The reviews above clearly prove the very fact that David Shadpour is unfit not to head any company. It’s appalling to see how David Shadpour hasn’t been fired or replaced and how he has kept his investors convinced of his capabilities to run the company. The investors need to see this and need to know better. I will post many more things on David Shadpour in the coming weeks on this page, stay tuned and please do share. The truth must be exposed, and the potential investors need to know that David Shadpour is not worth investing a dime in.
