    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.

    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

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

    Pros

    Glassdoor was my first job right out of college. I moved to a new city where I didn't know many people. The reason why I wanted to work at Glassdoor was that I believed in the product and it was something that was useful to me in my job search. Little did I know that a short three years later I would be looking back at my decision to accept my first job at Glassdoor as one of the best decisions of my life. Many of my...

    Cons

    Any company has cons no matter how great it is. Glassdoor has always done a good job taking feedback both from public reviews and internal feedback and laying out a plan to make changes. However, it sometimes takes longer to accept/see the issues and put into place fixes since we've grown so quickly. -Sales Operations- Many of our systems are very, very, very broken. This can occasionally lead to over or underpayments...

    Advice to Management

    Keep putting your people first, we all love you for it. Focus on the Billing Department, we're losing revenue due to a lack of accountability and responsiveness. Put people into Sales Operations leadership positions who have experience setting up and managing our systems. You've clearly noticed the issues and seem to be on the right track.

      I worked at Glassdoor full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Overall, I had a very positive experience at Glassdoor. Nine months ago, I would have rated the company 4 stars. Here's the top of my "pros" list. 1. People - My direct team was composed of professionals who are expert at their jobs, have fun with their work, and are genuinely great people. This extends to the Enterprise Sales and Customer Success teams as a whole. These are the groups I worked most closely with,...

      Cons

      The company has changed dramatically from when I joined 4 years ago. It was a disappointing end for me, given the highs my team achieved during my tenure. Dramatic change is to be expected when you're in growth mode, and especially after an acquisition. However, the top "cons" listed here are why I dropped my rating to 3 stars. They definitely played a role in my departure from the company. 1. Senior Leadership...

      Advice to Management

      I know it will be obvious who wrote this review, so as always...I'll tell it like it is. I aim for this advice to be constructive, but also very honest. Nothing I say should come as a surprise, as I've shared my feedback on multiple occasions. There are three key areas I believe management should address: 1. The Mission - Glassdoor's mission statement has become fuzzy for many in the ranks over the last few months....

      Pros

      Catered lunches Office in Marin on water

      Cons

      Senior execs are out of touch, petty and fail regularly at good communication. Leadership at all levels like to talk about transparency but do not walk their talk. No females on board of directors. Executive team very male-centric. Decisions are made by the few at the top while others are left to manage the day to day with low pay and very low team morale everywhere. Favoritism abounds on finance team, with one select...

      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...
