Does there seem to be diversity at Glassdoor?

Pros

Good Benefits Catered Lunches Free Gym and Gym classes

Cons

Very little room to grow, often those who get ahead do so through nepotism. Glassdoor does not pay at a competitive market rate which is ironic in itself. The company hires the same cookie cutter people from Marin and there is a serious lack of diversity within the company. There is zero culture the only decent events are Halloween but even then people hang out downstairs for about 20 mins and then go back to work.

Advice to Management

Work on creating diversity and learning how to keep talent. Its not a secret that the company has such a low retention rate.

Does Glassdoor provide assistance to those with physical or mental disabilitiies?

Pros

People Remote Policy PTO - if you can take it

Cons

- The company focus can and will change rapidly. The impact of this can directly impacting your work hours and mental health. - The rationale behind changes is not always clearly communicated, which leads to employee disengagement and confusion. - There is a lack of business focus and prioritization (or, if prioritization is happening it is not being communicated effectively). This leads to a massive amount of work to be done in absolutely insane timelines. - Burnout is rampant. 60% of our employee survey shows people are overworked. It's nice that they give us extra days off but we still come back to ton of work. Resources are lacking. - You are asked to always do more, burnout is part of life at Glassdoor and you have to accept it that you will not have work-life balance here. - We are losing ton of good talent, people see the writing on the wall that the future of Glassdoor is unstable. It's just a matter of time until they merge with Indeed and Indeed has been and will be calling all the shots. Glassdoor tries to retain people with benefits (RSUs, extra days off, etc) but there's so much you can do to keep people here.

The impact of this can directly impacting your work hours and mental health.

How is race or ethnicity talked about at Glassdoor?

Pros

Company mission, culture, office snacks, corporate swag, 100% paid benefits, company shares/equity before they sold (I wish you had gone public instead). Severance package is decent and you can keep your laptop.

Cons

This just isn't the same company it was 4 years ago. I have loved Glassdoor, the best company I have ever worked for, but as they have scaled in size, they have also lost some sizzle. I have witnessed this happen to other start-ups that scaled. Some things just feel different at 1000 employees than at 200. I used to feel very confident about the direction of the company and it's leadership. Some of the changes being made right now (May 2020) with Glassdoor, a sister company and the parent company now have me concerned. If it isn't broke, don't tinker with it. My advice is to stick with the same business model that paved the road to where you are today. I am an award-winning, quota-hitting, promoted, top-shelf sales rep who just lost my job to COVID-19. The sales dept was just gutted - aren't sales teams one of the last groups to go in a reduction in force due to an economic downturn? You award me for my efforts and success and then you send me packing. Cut the dead weight instead and keep top performers. I don't get it. My heart is broken. Glassdoor has gone out of it's way to create inclusivity for the LGBTQ+ community. I applaud their efforts and they have done a fantastic job! Unfortunately, Glassdoor put too many eggs in one basket. Black/AA, Asian, Hispanic/Latino, Jewish, Catholic, Christian, etc all take a backseat to LGBTQ+ who is riding shotgun. Glassdoor, have you ever temporarily changed your corporate logo to include the name/colors/logo of any diversity group other than LGBTQ+? Would you change your green logo to black for black history month? Or perhaps add a Cross, Star of David, or Santa hat to the corporate logo during holiday season? No, you wouldn't do those things. But you did incorporate the rainbow colors to your corporate logo during pride month. My advice is to work as hard for other diversity groups as you have done for LGBTQ+. Lastly, employee salaries are below national averages according to Glassdoor's very own "Know your Worth" data and salary info. They try to make up for it in other areas like office snacks, Patagonia swag and benefits.

Advice to Management

Everyone misses the former CEO and co-founder. He was so polished and well-spoken. He demanded such a presence in meetings and on the screen. Those are big and maybe even impossible shoes to fill.

Would you change your green logo to black for black history month?
