Company Updates

  • Tomorrow, we are honoring our black employees by acknowledging Juneteenth as a company holiday. As our BUILD (Blacks United in Leadership & Development) ERG shared, Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration honoring the end of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that Union soldiers, led by General Granger, landed in Texas with news the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note, this was two and a half years after President Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation ending slavery. Although institutional racism and inequities are still prevalent in the United States, Juneteenth marks a critical moment in America’s history. Companies ours are making efforts to take a stand against racial inequalities and police brutality by supporting their Black employees by making Juneteenth as a company holiday. Learn more about some of these companies in our article below:

  • June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month – a time to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and the progress made toward acceptance and change. At the same time, we reflect on all we still need to accomplish. On Monday, the Supreme Court that a landmark civil rights law protects gay and transgender workers from workplace discrimination. Until Monday’s decision, it was legal in more than half the states to fire workers for being gay, bisexual, or transgender. The vastly consequential decision extended workplace protections to millions of people across the nation. Glassdoor is committed to elevating and amplifying the voices of LGBTQ+ people in the workplace and celebrating their accomplishments. Take a moment to hear from some of our employees about what Pride means to them!

    I have been working at Glassdoor full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Being an HR Practitioner working in an HR Tech company is a dream; working at Glassdoor where our mission is to help people find a job and company they love is the cherry on top!

    The People team is transitioning to be much more strategic thought partners to the business, such a great time to be at a company when you can get your fingerprints all over a new way of working!

    All employees have direct lines of communication to the CEO and everyone in between.

    We have a super flexible work environment, amazing benefits, open PTO, 401k match...

    Cons

    2020 has brought a lot of changes (to the world) and to Glassdoor; we need to ruthlessly prioritize and focus. It's easy sometimes to get enamored by the bright shiny objects.

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful of all the change you're putting your employees (and customers) through. Focus on the critical few vs. trying to attack everything all at one time - be thoughtful in your approach.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (San Francisco, CA (US)).

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter on LinkedIn and the tech stack caught my attention. After a call with the recruiter, I was asked for a technical phone screen. The screening question was a good mix of algorithms, data structures and design.

    After clearing technical phone screen, I was invited for on-site interviews. There were 6 interviews excluding recruiter. I requested to spread the interviews over 2 days which was accepted.

    Interview Questions

    • Algorithms and data structure related questions. Pretty straightforward DFS, backtracking and Sets.   5 Answers
    • My people management style. Challenges faced in my (then) current role, was asked to provide examples etc.   8 Answers
