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

Pros

Great product with a solid strategy
Strong engineering culture
Meritocracy
Decent work/life balance, good compensation and benefits
Location is near the water and has access to outdoor activities

Cons

Can sometimes get into fire drill mode (Like almost all engineering organizations)
Still a growing company and resources can be spread thin at times
Hiring process can give interviewees an inaccurate perception of the company as dull

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to focus on growth, continue improvements in perks. Great location but an SF office would help with recruiting engineering talent.

    Pros

    So far my experience with Glassdoor has lived up to and even exceeded my expectations. First I would like to review the culture. I love to come to work everyday. It is a culture that treats you like an adult. They expect you to come in and work hard because being a newer company we can have a direct impact on Glassdoor moving forward. But is very relaxed atmosphere as well. A break room with tons of food to snack on and breakfast is provided daily. Also there is a grill outside so you can bring in your own food and get to grilling for lunch. There is a lot of room for professional development and growth. Glassdoor provides a lot of transparency in the company, which is important because that is what we do for our career community. There is an open door policy where you can walk into any of the execs office and talk with them about pretty much anything. I also like that the company is really cohesive and there is a lot of collaboration across many departments. Everybody wants to see the company grow and become a market leader. There are no egos here which can be a problem with many start up companies. I would say Glassdoor has already been one of the most enjoyable experiences of my professional career. I can not wait to spend the rest of my career with this company.

    Cons

    With any newer company there are going to be processes and strategies that need to be figured out. But those pitfalls are already being addressed which just takes time and collaborate efforts among executives, directors, managers and employees. The company is doing a great job of taking feed back from employees and implementing it as needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to make the company culture remains as the company grows. This is what really makes the employees come in and work hard day in and day out.
