    Pros

    I joined Glassdoor recently and I am so glad I did. Everything and everyone is awesome here. Very very smart and fun people to work with. They really know how to treat their employees. Lots of perks and benefits but you are expected to be great at your work which is awesome. Oh and wait, did I say that the location rocks!

    Cons

    I haven't seen any so far. I guess its very open environment so if you are sensitive to noise, this might be an issue for some.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more of the same....you have created something special :)

    I have been working at Glassdoor full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Glassdoor has been doubling every year in employee size, number of clients, and revenue since I started back in 2012. It's exciting company and culture to a part of. With this amount of growth, there's a lot of opportunity to stand out as a leader if you're a top performer. This has lead to people taking advantage of great upward mobility and career growth.

    Cons

    If you're not self-motivated or resourceful enough to figure how to keep your head above water or get ahead, you could get lost in the shuffle. That being said, Glassdoor gives everyone more than a fair chance not only survive here, but take leaps and bounds.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to your employees to shape your internal processes and employer products. Some the best ideas come from the field.

    Pros

    Cool perks like a good office location, fun employees, free lunches and nice gym equipment and lockers

    Cons

    They mistakes perks for culture. There's no real career path or progression and it's become much too political. The people who shout the loudest get all the praise. I also feel like we're losing focus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus in the users instead of profits. Help your employees reach their personal and professional goals.

    Pros

    I love working at Glassdoor. Everyone is extremely friendly and the benefits are awesome. We get free breakfast and lunch, free health insurance, unlimited time off, paid volunteering days and more.
    It's also great to know that we are revolutionizing the way people job hunt.

    Cons

    We are growing so fast that there is not enough space to put everyone, the workplace is a little crowded

    The HR group is ignorant, in a business that touts its ability to perform outsourced recruiting.

    Fire HR and start over.

    I have been working at Glassdoor as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Although I do love the work I do at Glassdoor, it’s the company culture that makes the job so enjoyable. Coming to work every day, I’m greeted by dogs and smiles. Sure there are always a few not so smiley people due to it being the morning or stress but for the most part it seems like everyone is genuinely happy. Why wouldn't they be? We work for a company that’s all about making people happy and our employers want us to be happy too. This is quite easy considering the amazing facilities and people we are given the opportunity to work with. The office is all open space, allowing for easy collaboration as well as socialization throughout the day. Need a break from work? Go take a run on the treadmill in the company gym or challenge a co-worker to a game of Ping-Pong. Hungry? Grab a healthy, or not so healthy, snack from the many mini-kitchens at the office or wait until noon for catered lunch to be served. Glassdoor is all about creating a good work/life balance and this is clear from some of the office policies. I’m not a dog owner or a parent but if I were I would love that I could bring my dog to work or use the baby room if I wanted to bring my child in. With all the Glassdoor has provided me with, what’s not to love? Coming to work doesn't feel like work at all because I love what I do and I hope to continue working for Glassdoor in the future.

    Cons

    I wish I could work more than I do

    When you are working from home, communication can sometimes be difficult.
