I have been working at Glassdoor full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Glassdoor has a very casual, laid back office environment. Unlimited paid time off, which ensures no one really takes vacation (perception is reality, so this is a positive). If you apply yourself, work hard and can find your own answers, many opportunities for advancement are made available.

Cons

Company is rather siloed across departments, making cross-department collaboration very difficult at times. Recent growth seeks to change this, however history has formerly told a different story.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Emphasize collaboration beyond your individual team. Be open to understand different perspectives, initiatives and goals as entire org tries to move the company forward.

    Pros

    What is rare about glassdoor is how connected every employee is to our mission. It gives each person tremendous fulfillment that their time here is well spent - we are helping people everywhere find the job they will LOVE. Glassdoor has a big opportunity to disrupt the $100B recruiting market. Great product with next to no competition. Lots of energy and enthusiasm. Still early enough for new employees to have a BIG impact on our future. Strong founding team who are smart, proven and who take the time to get to know the employees. On the path to IPO and beyond.

    Cons

    Depending on where you live in SF Bay Area, it can be hard to get to Sausalito. Many folks commute from over an hour away. Of course, once you are there...it is hard to beat the views.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the culture and values intact. Keep finding great talent, wherever they live in the world and relocate them to beautiful Sausalito. Keep building great products. Keep investing in people and giving ample room to grow. Get us into the new building on the bay...STAT.

    Pros

    Everyone is so friendly and passionate about helping the company. I feel that everyone has an open door policy and wants to help and chat. Even with all the work I have, I never feel like i am alone in it. Fun atmosphere and activities. Great Benefits.

    Cons

    We are in growth mode, which is a positive, but it does mean hard work is necessary. No one is just sitting around, so anyone who is lazy won't be a good fit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it going!
