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

    Pros

    Glassdoor is the favorite company I've worked for so far in my career. First and foremost, the company has an amazing company culture. People are really good to one another here. While people are smart and driven, they also care about making sure that everyone works together well. Glassdoor is also having a lot of success as a company. Like any early stage company there are ups and downs, but over the 4 years I've...

    Cons

    None really. It's worth saying that we have some big competitors (LinkedIn, Indeed) in our industry so you have to bring your A-game. But I believe in what we're doing and our results show we are having success.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on company culture even as we grow.

    I have been working at Glassdoor full-time

    Pros

    Career development & growth: I have been working at Glassdoor for 3 years and have been promoted 3 times which is amazing because once you build your internal brand and perform well, chances are that you will get promoted. Like any other organization you need to play your cards well and build the right reputation and relationships to speed up your promotion track, but overall, movements do happen frequently. Great...

    Cons

    Upper management & executive team: Leadership is very removed from the needs and struggles of the lower end of the workforce - with the most recent news of Glassdoor HQ moving to the city, I was expecting a more reasonable announcement to get employees more excited and pumped about moving to SF. But, because they are so disconnected with what we need, it was a very disappointing announcement in our monthly all-hands...

    Advice to Management

    When making huge announcements, try to understand your audience better, practice active listening and only share what you know will benefit the audience - Given that the current status of the big move to SF is under construction (until we have a new chief people office) it would be much more impactful to let the people know that you will be running internal surveys to understand what we value the most and letting us know...

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

    Pros

    Flexible WFH policy, incredible senior leadership

    Cons

    Blatant favoritism, low pay, inconsistent bonus policy, far commute from SF, no room for growth

    Advice to Management

    To begin, over half my team has left. You’d think the mass exodus from a single managers team would be cause for concern but no formal steps have been taken to see understand why. A lot of my frustrations stem from my manger never having been in the role. For over a year our team had to send manual emails each and every touch point with clients. Some performed this more diligently than others, but absolutely nothing...

    I worked at Glassdoor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I am very thankful for the past 2 years that I have had at Glassdoor. It truly is an amazing place to work. I was brought on to the team to help start to Solutions Consulting program. My direct team immediately felt like family. Everyone has each others back, and truly cares about their teammates success. I was trusted with my work and learned a lot on the fly, which I loved. The Solutions Consultant team is growing and...

    Cons

    1. The travel can be intense at times, especially in the busier months 2. Career path isn’t 100% clear, but the team is growing which is positive 3. Data can take a long time to load and can be complex to pull, which caused some late nights working on presentations 4. Lack of new products is causing employee churn across the whole organization

    Advice to Management

    The sales team (Enterprise specifically) is itching for a new product. Over communicate and really listen to the Enterprise side of the business, otherwise you’ll continue to lose good people.

    I worked at Glassdoor full-time

    Pros

    Dog friendly office. Free lunch and snacks. The pay is finally starting to get competitive. Most people there are very nice. Most managers have flexible policies around work hours and working from home.

    Cons

    Something dark lurks within the waters of Glassdoor's Sales Ops team, and it has the team's members fleeing for their careers. 1) The Only Live Culture on the Team is in our Yogurt In the most recent employee satisfaction survey, the largest word in the word cloud was "toxic". Pressure to perform is sky-high, which is part and parcel of any Sales Operations gig. However, the team's culture has shifted dramatically...

    Advice to Management

    We keep putting people in executive leadership positions who have never owned that function before. That's a key part of developing leaders, but when massive sectors of your company are being run by individuals who have only experienced their current function through case studies, it becomes incredibly self-limiting. Ironically, there are plenty of case studies demonstrating this. You are hemorrhaging Sales Operations...

    I worked at Glassdoor full-time for more than a year

    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

    Great teammates, feel truly able to be myself and "at home" at work. It feels inspiring to know our work makes an impact.

    Cons

    Changes and rapid growth may lead to some uncertainty, but we have strong leaders at the helm

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Appreciate the transparency and "walking the walk".
