    I have been working at Glassdoor full-time

    Pros

    Glassdoor UK and EMEA in general is still small - sub 100 people. We celebrate successes and there is a feeling of a close-knit team. Relaxed working environment and pay is good. Over the years Glassdoor has been slowly investing in core benefits like health insurance and pension. We work with some of the largest and most exciting brands in the world, and we truly are providing a service that helps people make better...

    Cons

    Very hierarchical structure in EMEA, especially in sales - there are Manager, Director, Sr Director and VP levels in place, yet the org is tiny in number of employees as of now. Several of these leadership hires were made externally, without the roles being posted internally to provide opportunity to grow despite this being a widely discussed pain point for employees. ~90% of the senior leadership team in EMEA is male...

    Advice to Management

    Think about who sits at the EMEA leadership table and whose voices and input shape the future of Glassdoor EMEA. We're at a critical place in our growth, moving from a small chaotic startup to a grown up business making a difference in the industry. Millions of candidates and our clients come to us daily to understand what the gold standard for employee experience is - let's lead by example and create a workplace that...

    I have been working at Glassdoor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people I get to work with every day are truly incredible. It helps that we have a product that I believe in, but working with coworkers and leaders who care about you, really does make going to work something that I enjoy.

    Cons

    There is often ambiguity. If you aren't one who thrives in taking on challenges and works proactively, you will feel frustrated.

    Advice to Management

    As we get bigger, find ways to keep the close-knit environment Glassdoor has built between upper management and everybody else

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

    Pros

    I wake up every morning pumped to walk into work... sounds cliché, but so true! The culture is unlike any company I've come to work for or interviewed for. Everyone in the Glassdoor community is truly genuine and extremely helpful in all aspects. Upper management will help you focus on your next career steps, in setting up mentorships and having one-on-ones to meet your goals. Since I've started as an OSR (only about...

    Cons

    As a new team, the role is continuously changing, but management's positive energy and great communication helps for an easy transition.

    Advice to Management

    Every day you have a smile on your face and bring great energy to the entire office. The team appreciates everything you do for us and the company!
