    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....

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

    Pros

    - Still small enough to still have some kind of input into ideas and ways to make teams better - Great people and peers -

    Cons

    - Upper management in sales is very disconnected - Promotion eligibility have guidelines but no one follows them and nothing makes sense around the process - Moving across departments is much tougher than management makes it seem and pay is much lower than industry standards when you move outside of sales at GD

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

    Pros

    This review is long overdue. Since I started with the company, I have felt a strong connection to our values and a deep desire to grow with Glassdoor. Local leadership is approachable and always willing to hear our ideas (and float them upwards when they are good ones!) Growth is possible as long as you continue to put in hard work month after month. Quota is challenging, but achievable, which is the whole point of having...

    Cons

    At times, it can feel like SDRs are not as important or valuable to the company. Recently, however, leadership has been giving our SDR team shoutouts and if we continue to do that, it will add to the value we bring to the company. SDRs are usually the first voice or outreach to many companies, so investing in more training can improve sales and ROI over time. Sometimes it can be challenging working directly with teams...

    Advice to Management

    I think the change in the SDR leadership will be refreshing and an outside voice could be the catalyst into an even more powerful team. I think all teams would benefit from outside professional sales trainings, whether it is a training focused on cold calling, best email practices, or others of that nature. It would be great to see the Mill Valley executive team in the Chicago office more, although I know this is tough...

    It's great to hear your perspective, thanks for taking the time to leave this review. SDRs are a critical part of our go-to-market operations. We quite literally couldn't survive without you. I agree that our benefits are great and Glassdoor is a wonderful place to be a parent. I'll ...

    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

    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...

    * Great People from Peers to Leaders - working here is genuinely fun and the people are awesome! In addition to senior leadership being super personable and humble, I've made some great friends here and am almost always happy to come into work every morning to see my coworkers/friends even though I have the flexibility to work from home!

    I know we as Glassdoor do our best to “walk the talk” of transparency and valuing the employee experience.

That said, morale in Growth is pretty low right now and I’m starting to worry I won’t be motivated to get promoted to...

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

    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

    It’s the friends that we work with that make Glassdoor great. In full transparency, it’s been a challenging year, but I stuck it out because of the people here. It’s hard to leave a company when you love working for your manager and there’s awesome chemistry with your team. My manager’s ability to coach us to the top and keep everyone happy to be at Glassdoor was the highlight of my year. Our Director was very hands...

    There’s been lots of growing pain this past year and it greatly impacted the culture of our Sales and CS Department. Morale was at its lowest this past year since my time at Glassdoor.

    I’m glad to read this because it’s something I’ve been feeling lately too. Companies go through transitions and they don’t always make it out ahead. I’m happy to see that our team has tackled challenges that have come our way and we’ve emerged stronger. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
