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.

Pros

- remote work available - great benefits - workplace experience team is amazing at trying to keep employees engaged

Cons

- Leadership is very disengaged and the majority are interviewing elsewhere - Transparency has been lacking in the past 12 months and a merger with Indeed is inevitable even though leadership keeps saying its a "partnership" - Lack of diversity. Leadership wants a quick fix for fixing the diversity issue but does not want to fix the underlining problems within the organization regarding bias. - HR is not authentic. Every interaction is fake and they just keep hiring people from their own networks creating an unauthentic groupthink situation. - All teams are running on fumes and employees feel so burnt out. It is not until the majority of the team quits, that they will open a backfill. - They claim you can be your authentic self but if you aren't the person they want you to be, they will hold it against you and will hurt your career growth.

Advice to Management

Listen to your teams and give them the support they need. Stop hiring the same background for leadership so you can enhance your culture. Spend time in the All Hands talking about true business decisions instead of sidestepping around the problems.

Pros

Really good, hard-working people. Pay bands increased in the past few years, so compensation is much better. Benefits are excellent as well.

Cons

Company neglected content and branding for years and is just now trying to catch up by haphazardly developing new products. Not much room for growth in Customer Success. New company strategy seems like too little too late. Also not much diversity in terms of background, ideas, etc.

Pros

The handling of COVID and our pivot to remote work was excellent. We had everything we needed to transition. Benefits and comp package are great, and lastly good people. I had two of the most wonderful managers you could ever ask for, fantastic sales partners and a supportive team. Everyone is also genuinely willing to help you succeed. Jacob, the VP of diversity and inclusion has made incredible strides within the company in a short amount of time. Though our diversity initiatives were late, the executive team truly cared and got behind the message. They want to learn and do better. Christian has gotten a lot of slack in these employee reviews due to the layoffs but he and his CHRO have good hearts and truly care about Glassdoor and every current and ex-employee.

Cons

The new strategy shift made career pathing within client success seem almost pointless. Also, Glassdoor is extremely late to the diversity and inclusion space. What makes it worse is that there are employees within the company who are not on board with expanding diversity initiatives and will openly make it known. As a Black employee it was honestly disheartening and hurtful to witness.

Advice to Management

One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to your employees. It may be hard, but try and take into consideration all the unique backgrounds and experience that we bring to the table.
