I have been working at Glassdoor full-time (Less than a year)
So far, working at Glassdoor has been great. I've only been here a few months, but I already know it's the best place I've ever worked. The benefits, the people, the culture and atmosphere are all stellar. The work is challenging in a good way and there's a lot to learn. There are many growing opportunities within the company as well, as the company continues to expand. Even though it's a growing company, importance is placed on keeping a tight knit feel with team huddles involving all offices, good communication, and visits from members of other offices and teams. At a local level, teams are also extremely close and there are many fun bonding opportunities presented both in and outside of the office. Everyone is willing to help each other at work, and there is a laid back atmosphere. Managers and HR are always available to talk or answer questions. Co-workers and management actually care about getting to know you. "Good morning" and "Have a goodnight" are phrases that you will hear everyday. Flexible hours and the option to sometimes work from home help contribute to a good work/life balance. It's a dog friendly office, which puts a smile on everyones' faces. Free drinks and snacks are available in the kitchen, bagel Mondays and donut Wednesdays, and free fitness classes during the day. Work laptop provided, your choice of mac or pc. Excellent health insurance, dental, vision, FSA, 401k, paid holidays, and PTO. You keep track of your own time. There are free courses for professional and personal development available for those who are interested. Overall, Glassdoor is a great place to work. We put in hard work, but we have a good time doing it.
Training is a lengthy process, but this is necessary because there is a lot to learn. It can also be an adjustment if you are used to working a more physical job, as you spend most of your day on the computer. Multiple areas are provided for you to work though, so you can move around. You can even work outside if you want!
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing! Continue to listen to employees and what they want/need to succeed. Keep the lines of communication open, as this is something that you do very well.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Green, OH (US)) in July 2019.
The interview process was pretty quick and easy experience. I had an initial phone conversation with the HR Talent Recruiter which was about 30 minutes to get to know my background. After that I had another 30 minute conversation with the hiring Director to talk about more specifics related to my experience and background. These two conversations happened within two weeks of starting the process. About a week later I had an onsite interview with the hiring Director and 3 other leaders whom this position would be working with. Each interview was 1:1 and lasted about 30 minutes. After the interviews I was briefly taken on a tour of the office. It was only a few days after that I received the offer for the position. This was one of the best interview experiences I've had.
