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

    Pros

    Working for Glassdoor has been eye-opening... after years of dreading going to work every single day, having anxiety-ridden Sunday nights and clock-watching my way through life - I finally love my job. Working here is a pleasure and I am motivated every day by the people around me. There is a team-effort mentality here and I feel fulfilled day-in and day-out. There are no egos here - incredible intelligence, productivity, performance and even more humility. From top to bottom-- the positive culture is incredibly strong. We live our mission. I LOVE this place. Don't ever change, please.

    Cons

    Waiting for pay increases can be frustrating in start-up land, but we hope that you know you know who is in it for the long haul with you...make sure to continue to positively reinforce that so you don't lose some of your loyal followers... this is a very expensive area to live in and we want to stay with you!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the culture as we grow...don't hire too many corporate types...the best part of this company is the warm & cozy feel. No jerks allowed at GD.

    I have been working at Glassdoor full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many different ways to help employees work comfortably together, including the open environment (several walls have come down at this location), unofficial group activities (yoga, biking), frequent hands-on demos of new features, weekly huddles, and team recognition awards. For the most part, we treat ourselves as a community, just as we do the user- and customer base.

    Other things: flexible time-off policy, inexpensive benefit package, and dogs.

    Cons

    Despite (or perhaps because of) the community feel, I, a work-focused introvert, had struggled daily with working effectively in this environment. There are few places to escape to if you need quiet time, and if you don't engage actively with the team it's easy to get overlooked. It has gotten better recently, but I'm certain my career stagnated in the meantime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so focused on the company's growth that we can't grow with you.
