    Pros

    Comp plan is ridiculously good right now, especially on the new business side of the house. Management is excellent and morale is high.

    Cons

    How about moving the office to SF?!

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

    Pros

    There are many pro's about working for Glassdoor - strong leadership who is always willing to listen, great people - no ego's / everyone is constantly trying to help each other, talented support professionals, and lots of flexibility. We have big goals, and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else besides here, helping us achieve those!

    Cons

    Things change frequently, so you do have to be able to adjust quickly. This is something you may have to get used to. However, now, I view this as a positive and enjoy how agile we can be.

    Advice to Management

    Incentivize client support reps with renewals, etc. so we don't loose anymore talented client support reps and implementation managers.

    Pros

    Flexibility, amazing people, and an industry disrupting platform. We have incredible ancillary benefits including fitness programs and free lunch

    Cons

    You have set us up in sales to fail. While you say that you hear us, you have done nothing to address this issue. Alternatively, you have positioned your middle managers to make us feel like we aren't doing our jobs up to your standards. 10% of the entire sales org hit their quarterly goal last quarter. Really??? The upper management you've put in place are constantly in meetings (about what??), therefore out of sight....

    Ouch - two stars. We are clearly not getting it done in terms of communicating with you or supporting you in the ways you need. We are actively meeting (yes, those pesky meetings) to discuss many of the issues you raised. We want our teams to win, it's sincerely our intent. I strongly ...

    Pros

    Glassdoor is a fast-growing late stage start-up making a real impact in the world - we're helping people find great jobs and helping companies find ideal talent. The people here are awesome, starting at the top with our CEO. Robert is an inspiration to all - he's ethical, passionate, approachable, intelligent, and willing to help the sales team. In fact, everyone is willing to help whenever assistance or advice is needed....

    Cons

    Things have changed quite a bit over the last several months, and it’s sad to say – this place isn’t as great as it once was. Compensation is now far lower than many similar stage companies in the SF Bay Area (48% below national average for Enterprise Account Executives, according to Glassdoor's own data) and worse, we just received our compensation package for the first quarter of 2016 (2 months late), my quota has...

    Advice to Management

    On-site gyms, free meals, and yoga are neat, but what we need is a fast remedy for our ailments. We need decisions to be made logically, and to think long-term rather than to be so short-sighted…and we’d love our voice to be heard – this is what real culture is about. I know we are working on all of this stuff currently, but it feels like much has gone sideways over the last several months. We need to get our house...

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

    Pros

    Very simple business model that capitalizes on real trends in consumer behavior. Culture is extremely important. Feedback is constantly being solicited about the direction of the organization Support from marketing. The Glassdoor brand is everywhere which makes selling much easier

    Cons

    Feedback is always being solicited about the direction of the org (yes, that can be a con). Very competitive market of recruitment advertising. Most companies try to spend less on recruitment, not more. Aggressive growth goals

    Advice to Management

    It's great that the company thinks about the employees, but more decisions need to be made top-down and communicated clearly. Don't create too much of an employee ownership culture

    Thanks for your thoughts. Point taken on our need to get really good at clear communication. This becomes even more important as we scale. We're always working on this and I welcome your ideas.

    Pros

    Amazing company and great value add to the recruitment industry. We get to help people find jobs they love and it's a great message! CEO is a great guy, really down to earth and passionate about our vision Great people and coworkers. I've made lifelong friends in a short amount of time

    Cons

    1- New comp plan: I'm being told that I need to sell more, while getting less commission. So I basically have to work harder and get paid the same or less (VERY likely we will make less as the goals are lofty). We are regressing, not progressing. This is drastic even by industry standards The mid-level managers are going to bat for us and trying to make things fair and keep us happy. But we have no insight into these...

    Advice to Management

    We keep being told to look at the "big picture" I get it. But here's the fact, the people that are looking at the "big picture" have "big SHARES and equity in GD" and are not in the office day to day in sales, ops, engineering, marketing etc... Let's look at our "little picture" it's people's livelihoods, children's education and their mortgages. The majority of people are not going to get super rich off of their shares...

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

    Pros

    I have been with the company for almost 2.5 years in sales (which is a lifetime in the Bay Area). I still am just as excited to go to work today as I was on day one. We have changed a lot and had plenty of ups and downs but there's no place I'd rather be. We operate as a team and support each other no matter what the situation. Leadership is strong and opportunities to advance still exist. That's all good stuff for a...

    Cons

    Management has become quite layered over time. What used to take 5 minutes to get approval on now takes a couple days. Sometimes communication breaks down between those layers. This is all part of the natural progression from start up to big boy company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to spend time with your senior team members so we don't feel forgotten. Make sure to always come to us for feedback when changes are imminent so we can prepare. Never forget where we came from.

    Great reminder. I love the scrappiness that we all have at this stage. It's a big part of our DNA and I don't ever want to lose that. With more offices, more leaders and more people, we do have to stay creative about how to connect. I'll continue listening and sharing openly. And ...

    Pros

    -Beautiful headquarters on the water in Sausalito which includes free parking and free lunch! -Glassdoor is growing like crazy and it is very exciting to hit new milestones every quarter -The sales org has well defined career paths, aggressive but attainable quotas, uncapped commission, fun co-workers, and a supportive management team -Clients are very engaged at the Enterprise level. It is fun to work with big brands...

    Cons

    -Sausalito could be considered a downside since it is not in the city, which also makes happy hour a little challenging (I actually like the counter-commute from the city) -Normal growing pains, such as territory re-alignments, new processes, and not knowing everyone by name anymore -First 6 months for new sales rep can be a little daunting since there is a big learning curve

    Advice to Management

    -Continue to listen to your teams and make appropriate adjustments -The sales org could use more team outings so that we bond with new hires -Sales needs another product to sell - our clients want to buy more! -Focus on our culture as we grow -Keep up the great work!
