    Pros

    The company practices what they preach. Employees are celebrated and recognized for their contributions. This is the most positive company culture I have ever seen.

    Cons

    Its a faced paced environment and that is not for everybody. The company is growing and you have to be able to work independently. That's more of an observation than a negative statement about the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, continue to invest in your people and technology.

    Great people at manager manager and director level. Dysfunction at executive level.

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Southborough, MA

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

    Pros

    * Great company mission
    * Unbelievable people up to the director level
    * Hard working and thoughtful employees
    * Very good solution
    * Great sales team
    * Tremendous growth prospects
    * Flexibility around remote working for many employees

    Cons

    * Ironically, for a company that espouses employee engagement, the CEO does many things that are antithetical to creating engagement: he chooses not to interact with most employees; he is disparing about people's work; he armchair quarterbacks without offering helpful input
    * Most of the executives seem afraid or unwilling to disagree with the CEO
    * Vast majority of employees don't get equity
    * Micromanagement and inefficient workflows
    * Product team has been woefully understaffed for more than a year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * CEO needs to actually live the values the company espouses externally
    * Executive management should stop kowtowing to CEO; act like real leaders (Head of Sales is an exception to this pronounced problem)
    * Start allowing your great employees to do their jobs effectively, and stop micromanaging all facets of every project
    * Give your hard-working employees equity in the company

    Winning company culture

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Southborough, MA

    I have been working at Globoforce Limited

    Pros

    - Great customers. Globoforce has an impressive roster of blue-chip clients
    - Winning. The company is beating the competition and closing deals. It's great to he in that kind of winning atmosphere. It's also a lot of fun to beat the competition.
    - Growth. The company is growing, fast.
    - Profitability
    - Culture. As you'd expect from an employee recognition company, the culture at Globoforce is truly special. The recognition program for example gets exceptionally high usage and funding. It's truly motivating to do great work in an environment where culture is important.

    Cons

    Because of the growth, there's just tons of work to do! Particularly when you're waiting to fill open positions with great candidates, work can overwhelm if you're not careful.

    I have been working at Globoforce Limited

    Pros

    Everyone wants to help everybody else. There are a number of times I have had help from others to accomplish my goals. It makes me want to jump in and help my peers out as well. It's a true team culture. This also helps drive innovation in the company.

    Cons

    There really aren't any. I know that sounds unrealistic, but the culture is one of support for one another, and that to me overshadows any weaknesses. I'm also a half full kind of person. If this positive environment is what you want, this is what you get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work! Keep talking at CEO levels with other CEOs and spreading the good news about global strategic recognition.
