David Shadpour – The Narcissistic CEO of Social Native

I worked for David Shadpour 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 favours 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 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 really really needs to be revamped. The investors need to intervene and take control from David Shadpour before he ruins and devastates the entire company.

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 lack of communication, support and understanding between teams. The environment was not conducive to collaboration. Their selling tactics are highly questionable. There is 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 on Glassdoor too so you can all know better when it comes to David Shadpour and Social Native.

Company compromised by CEO

Too many manual and archaic processes

How does he continue to remain a leader and CEO of an organisation i really wonder at times? David Shadpour continues to con, deceive and manipulate everyone by publishing and paying for fake positive articles about him and his company. This is one of the worst company you can ever be in and he is the worst leader you can ever work for, if i were to sum up my experience and be precise, thats exactly how i would put it out. You will only be ruining your career and peace of mind if you decide to work for Social Native. Recently even the CEO of Paycertify – Chase Harmer was also exposed by one of his former employees.


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