Amazing company, amazing people

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Sausalito, CA

I have been working at Glassdoor full-time

ProsI love working here; the people are enthusiastic and passionate. The company is innovative and forward thinking. Great culture, and exciting work, especially in a period of such growth. It doesn't feel like "work" and every day brings a new challenge or opportunity

Cons- Older people: The average age is much higher than most similar Bay Area tech startups. While this has helped establish Glassdoor, there is some inertia because of this, and perhaps the company isn't reacting to new market developments at the rate that it should be.
- Bureaucratic: Bureaucracy is odd for a company that is so small and relatively new, but because of the aforementioned inertia, there are often several levels of management one has to go to for a new idea to ever reach the surface. At a company that is growing so quickly, nobody ever has enough "bandwidth" to spend the appropriate time reviewing such ideas, and so innovation is often systemically discouraged.

Advice to Senior Management-Focus more on product: be more user centric. Improve UI/UX as that really matters to most users.
-Improve social media. Glassdoor is a social media company, and yet its social media handles are underdeveloped. Invest in this.
-While the company is great at employee recognition, try and enhance employee innovation (think Google 20% time) and foster new ideas

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Professional site lacks professionalism on the inside

Lead Generation Associate (Former Employee)

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


Pros: - Fresh Fruit Monday, Bagel Wednesday, and Donut Friday - Flexible work hours/ lunch breaks - Vibrant atmosphere… Cons: - I essentially had to fire myself.
