    I have been working at Glassdoor full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Glassdoor is an impactful tool for a job seeker, and knowing we promote this for employers to embrace is an amazing feeling. We've brought transparency to an industry that needed it and we do it in the most fair way we possibly can. Investing millions of dollars into Content moderation and never deleting reviews because we are "asked." The people I work with are smart, gritty, and hardworking. We work long hours, we’re...

    Cons

    If you're a candidate interviewing for the ENT AM role, I would not recommend it. Business decisions have been made in favor of our new biz and strat teams for years now. The new comp plan has major problems. Reps hitting quarterly quotas is no longer depictive of sales skill, hustle, and “trusting the process”. Opportunity in rep books is wildly different. The journey of FY2019 is enormously more challenging...

    Advice to Management

    The result of the above is jaded reps who lost their sparkle and are updating their resumes. It makes me sad, and I hope it concerns our leaders. Frustration is at an all time high. These reps carry the largest quotas in the entire sales org. It feels like glassdoor is asking us all to leave, are you? It can’t be understated, growth is complex. But you've failed to bring in a VP who can navigate this. And since you've...

    Pros

    I joined Glassdoor 2 months ago and have no regrets at all. My new colleagues have all been very welcoming, supportive and clearly know what they are doing. Not just from my own office, but this includes people throughout the organisation - from the ones I met during the onboarding process in Chicago to my colleagues based in Dublin. Being in sales, the product itself is fundamental to the pride I feel at...

    Cons

    Obviously, when a company is growing at such a pace then you will have growing pains and certain challenges. But to be honest that is what excited me about joining Glassdoor and what keeps my job interesting. Each day brings new challenges, but if your head is in the right place and you are prepared to work hard, then the satisfaction of genuinely contributing to the success of a business outweighs any negatives.

    Advice to Management

    As we grow across all departments, hiring the right people at the right time is crucial to our success. Let's make sure our employees aren't too stretched before we start the hiring cycle. Being proactive rather than reactive.

    Pros

    - Strong mission - Great benefits and perks - Opportunity to sell an amazing product - Great people all around, management truly supports you - Fast paced environment with aggressive/attainable quotas - The CEO Robert Hohman really cares about his employees

    Cons

    - Chicago office needs to allow dogs on-site (maybe every Friday?), the California office allows dogs. Huge con for dog lovers.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to preach transparency across all levels of the organization. You do an amazing job listening to your employees and implementing feedback quickly. As Glassdoor continues to grow, do not let the culture or values fade. Keep quotas attainable to keep morale high. Thanks for all that you do!

    Pros

    -Great B2C product that's really helping people in the world -Terrific culture and lovely colleagues -Rapid growth which means lots of exciting projects to work on -Plenty of opportunity for professional development and advancement if you're a go-getter and don't need much structure and can handle lots of ambiguity -Amazing benefits -Terrific location (if you're into being on the water in Marin)

    Cons

    Glassdoor came of age in the era of startups that had the philosophy of "get lots of users and worry about monetizing later." This company did an extremely good job of that. We built a great product and now have millions of monthly users across the globe. But it also means the monetization and business model were not top of mind. We're now paying the price as a great B2C company that still, after 10 years, hasn't fully...

    Advice to Management

    From a strategic perspective, we cannot continue muddling forward forever. It's time to put some stakes in the ground, lay out a bold vision, and take some risks.

    Pros

    The Mission is amazing, To Help People Everywhere Find a Job and Company they Love. Good Salary and Commission Great Benefits Great Team Members Great Office Dogs!

    Cons

    I've Sold the same products for 5 years We Need something new to sell Our internal feedback goes to a layered system of management that never makes it s way outside of Sales. We forecast to forecast the forecast before forecasting that previous forecast.

    Advice to Management

    Vision : From my stand point Sales needs to demand a new product. If we do not get something new to sell that is not a failure of the product team as I believe they are truly looking at the 3-5 year strategy, that is a failure of the Sales Organization to not influence the decisions of what we need to be successful on the Enterprise tier in the near term. Thats not just on Enterrprise sales leadership, but Enterprise...

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

    Pros

    - renewed focus on the product - company is looking at growth and expanding to international markets - culture is easy to work with and they hire good people

    Cons

    - very little documented process which makes it difficult to know what you are empowered to do and leads to some power struggles - PM team is inexperienced and focuses on small projects and nobody is looking at larger changes - Seems afraid to tackle changes to existing site because if might mess up some metrics.

    Advice to Management

    You need to break some stuff to make it better. There is a lot of tech and design debt in the site with a lot of small things that are broken. There is nobody paying attention to how everything works together and engagement is suffering because of it. Keep hiring good people but let them tackle fundamental product change rather than optimizing things that are broken.

    Pros

    The mission and people at Glassdoor are top notch. It's hard to find another company like it!

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of opportunities to switch to other departments. You're stuck in one career path, and it takes more time than necessary to move up in your designated path.

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

    Pros

    Glassdoor has come a long way in developing a culture where design has an equal part in high-level decisions. They're also developing a legitimate UX team that will help fully support these decisions. The Director of UX played a big part of this by taking a small but very talented team, and helped to not only strengthen the team as a unit, but created a productive cadence and encouraged everyone to communicate the value...

    Cons

    The biggest frustration for me, was the lack of strategy and focus at the top level. This made it difficult for me as a decent UX designer to fully understand the main user goal for any product i was working on, as the scope of the project changed dramatically throughout its lifecycle.
