Featured Review

Current Employee - People Team

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

Pros

Being an HR Practitioner working in an HR Tech company is a dream; working at Glassdoor where our mission is to help people find a job and company they love is the cherry on top! The People team... is transitioning to be much more strategic thought partners to the business, such a great time to be at a company when you can get your fingerprints all over a new way of working! All employees have direct lines of communication to the CEO and everyone in between. We have a super flexible work environment, amazing benefits, open PTO, 401k match...

Cons

2020 has brought a lot of changes (to the world) and to Glassdoor; we need to ruthlessly prioritize and focus. It's easy sometimes to get enamored by the bright shiny objects.

Advice to Management

Be mindful of all the change you're putting your employees (and customers) through. Focus on the critical few vs. trying to attack everything all at one time - be thoughtful in your approach.

"Amazing Culture"Sep 16, 2020

Former Employee - Guest Experience Specialist

I worked at Airbnb full-time

Pros

A sense of belonging to a community of colleagues is just the beginning of a truly unique work experience.

Cons

Nothing worth mentioning to be honest
