Walking through the doors at each Glassdoor location, the view may be different but the feeling is the same: pride.
We’re go-getters who feel passionately about our mission and are pushing forward with full steam to seize it. Every department and office location has a buzz of energy as we excitedly help move the business forward and look for ways to improve, innovate and disrupt our industry. Working at Glassdoor means collaborating with incredible people, blazing trails, and continuously challenging yourself and others to lead from the front. We’re certainly not perfect, but we do our very best with a high level of integrity and continuously learn and adapt. We believe everyone has a voice and place high level importance on treating each other with mutual respect.
We embrace emotional intelligence here, and that means hands-on training to develop the tools you need to connect with colleagues through relationship building and constructive dialogue. Our employees also receive three days a year just to volunteer, and while benefits like 100% paid health premiums enhance the experience, it’s the work we do and the people we work with that we like best.

Our office is accessible through multiple transportation options, making it easy for employees to get to work from all corners of the Bay Area.
Between the views, dog friendly office, on-site gym, free fitness classes, game room and other treats you’d expect at a Bay Area technology company, you’ll find some surprises too. While we provide catered lunch and healthy snacks, we also donate our lunch money occasionally to local schools and non-profits. But don’t just take our word for it, check out our and tabs to hear from those who know best— our own employees.

I have been working at Glassdoor full-time (Less than a year)
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 3 months ago) 3 of my teammates have been promoted so growth in the company can be fast and is expected.
We moved into a new office on Fulton Market, which is completely beautiful with a great view of the city.
Your coworkers will become family!
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
Every day you have a smile on your face and bring great energy to the entire office. The team appreciates everything you do for us and the company!
The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Chicago, IL (US)) in November-2017.
This was the most fun and interactive interview process I have ever been apart of. The whole point is to really get to know the candidate, which many companies lack nowadays. The interview consisted of 4 steps and the whole process took about 3 weeks. The first step is a brief phone screening with a recruiter - I had Linda who was an absolute gem to work with through out the entire interview process. The second step was a phone call with the hiring manager - Come with a reason why you are leaving your current position and why you would be a good fit for GD. The third, and in my opinion, the most difficult part of the interview process, was the product pitch. GD provides you with all of the necessary tools to be successful - Be sure to practice, practice, practice! The fourth and final step was an in person meeting with sales managers/directions. This portion was surprisingly pleasant and conversational - Not nearly as intense as most interviews. I heard back the same day and am ecstatic that GD has welcomed me into their family!
