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

    Pros

    Work with a really great and collaborative team. We all want eachother to do well and will help out where we can. My favourite thing is a the culture at Glassdoor. Everyone works hard but we can all have a bit of fun while we are at it. Plently of nights out and reconigition for overachievement. You have to be pretty resilient in this role but the rewards are worth it. There are loads of progression opportunities in every...

    Seem to be a lot of sales ops issues that take ages to get resolved. Sometimes extra hours are needed to hit target.

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

    Pros

    Could be advantageous to have Tech multinational experience on your CV, as it is a well known brand. Start up environment, in a great location. Earning potential is generous.

    Cons

    Probation period of 6 months is actually make or break after 3 months. If you are not hitting & exceeding targets from month 1 your life quickly becomes extremely stressful and management become pessimistic & micro-managers watching, listening and monitoring your calls & calendar. Overall Glassdoor is a very difficult product to sell given a lot of prospective clients you a cold approaching dislike Glassdoor,...

    Advice to Management

    Care about more then targets and treat your staff as people first, fee earners second.

    Pros

    Loads of pros to working here! - Really welcoming and friendly environment to work in, management and coworkers are really approachable and great buzz in the office! - Not a typical cold calling sales role. - Great feeling of togetherness and people working towards the same goal - Management follow through on their aim to be transparent and like to keep everyone in the loop as much as possible! - Great benefits...

    Cons

    As the EMEA offices are still growing and an unstructured on-boarding means an overwhelming start, but with everyone so willing to help its easy one to get over. New programmes for on-boarding are being focused on now which means a very exciting time for new starters!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

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

    Pros

    - Early stages of growth so an exciting time to be in the company and a lot of potential for growth and progression - Still a small company so you can feel valued and your opinion matters, even if you're just a new member - Not a typical cold-calling environment - more of a consultative approach to selling which helps you learn a lot more about the product / service from the beginning of your career - A lot of nights...

    Cons

    - Work life balance can be difficult at times and quota does not change if you have paid time off so this can be very stressful, especially for new starts which causes people to work unsociable hours and weekends - Promotion timeline and criteria has been very vague so expectations aren't properly set for new joiners

    Advice to Management

    - Have clearer expectations set for new joiners for promotion - As we start to grow, try to maintain the culture (BAMF, Kuddle etc.) - Be more realistic with quotas so that people don't feel guilty for taking time off

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

    Pros

    Glassdoor is full of great people who you can learn from. The culture is great with plenty of social events. There are plenty of benefits, from unlimited annual leave, private health insurance, a good pension scheme and pizza on Friday's.. We also have free snacks (crisps, popcorn, cans of coke, vit hits, fulfill bars, pistachios etc). We also have a fridge of beers, wine etc. The EMEA region is expanding so there are...

    Cons

    -Promotion timeline has been unclear and vague, so expectations were not set properly for new starters which leads to disappointment and frustration. -Quota is quite high and can be stressful. You don't get quota relief when you take time off, so it is hard to hit your monthly quota/targets. The workload can be a lot and pressuring. - If you don't hit quota, your commission isn't great -Work/Life balance can be hard...

    Pros

    I love working at Glassdoor. The company mission resonates with me and is always reiterated. I love my manager and my co-workers. The company puts on fun events, the office is beautiful and dog friendly. Everyone is nice and friendly as well. I am able to be a leader and am never told that something is out of reach if it's something I want to do. My teammates support me and my managers encourage me.

    Cons

    I have no complaints. I truly love working at Glassdoor!!!!!!!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work hard for your team and help those that fall behind. Always make sure promotion paths are clearly understood.

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

    Pros

    - I don't feel like I have to separate my work from my life... working at Glassdoor is just a part of my life and I love every single second of it. - I don't ever work more than 40 hours/week, and I get paid more than most people doing a similar job at other tech companies - Quota is extremely attainable, and once you exceed your quota get ready for VERY aggressive accelerators Long story short, Glassdoor fits...

    Cons

    - Historically hasn't been great training support for SDR's, however that is changing, as we recently added a SDR Sales Trainer to our team - Office is getting so big that its almost impossible to get to know everyone

    Advice to Management

    Invest more resources into on-boarding. First impressions are everything, and its important we create a great experience for our new hires!

    Pros

    Glassdoor is a company that truly cares about you as an individual. I have, on countless occasions, had the opportunity to meet with our CEO and just chat. Get to know him as a person, which is rare! We also have so many great perks, benefits are amazing, promotion opportunities are through the roof, and of course, a GREAT opportunity to make some $$$. Pros: - Lunch on MW & Thurs - Catered breakfast for events...

    This being a "young org" will go through its changes, but this isn't really a con. If you can't roll with the punches, this might not be the place for you.

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

    Pros

    Glassdoor is trying to be innovative. There are good people who work there. I think that it could be a good place to work. The benefits and perks were pretty good.

    Cons

    Management generally does not live up to good values and treat people fairly. They have an image that they have created of helping to bring transparency to the workplace but that value is absolutely absent at Glassdoor. I'm most upset by the fact that they pretend to be better than other workplaces and the reality doesn't live up to it. So basically I hate hypocrisy and that is very present there.

    Advice to Management

    Get off your high horse and be honest with your employees and your customers.

    I’m sorry to see that Glassdoor was not a fit for you. As a new leader on this team, I appreciate your honest feedback and take it seriously. I think we have an opportunity to over-communicate our company values and work to make sure everyone feels that we are truly embracing them. ...
