Our 2014 "Glass-doers"

Summer interns at Glassdoor aka "Glass-doers" are given the opportunity to learn in a hands-on environment working on real projects. No getting coffee'll be doing real work that makes a huge impact on the company and helps people around the world find the jobs and companies they love.

Check out what our 2014 "Glass-doers" had to say about their experience:

"Working at Glassdoor as a summer intern has given me the opportunity to learn from the best and confirm my decision to pursue my chosen career path. Plus, I have learned so much in the past 12 weeks that I¹m excited to go back to school and apply my new skills in a classroom setting. I am definitely a Glassdoor fan!"

Sarah Stoddard, PR Intern

"This internship has helped me learn what IT is all about and how to get started in my IT career. In school, it will help me because I can fix my computer whenever it crashes. It can also help me when others need help fixing their computers."

Sheldon Smart, IT Intern

"My internship at Glassdoor has helped me understand what a startup environment is like and I believe this will help me in the future because I plan on creating multiple startups, so it is nice getting experience with this kind of working environment early on. Reading all of these reviews on different companies has helped me understand what suitable working conditions are and what makes people happy in a workplace. This knowledge will help me hopefully create a fun and enjoyable work space when I create my first startup. Working at Glassdoor has also helped me by teaching me how to manage my time more wisely in order to meet the goals of each day. This skill should help me manage my school work better, once the new school year starts in late August."

Saahil Saini, Content & Community Intern

"Glassdoor has helped me develop the skills I need to work as a vital member of a team. I enjoy time spent cooperating with my fellow co-workers. Working at Glassdoor has taught me the patience I need to complete certain tasks. I am able to focus my attention to my daily goals while maintaining an enjoyable internship experience. My time at Glassdoor will provide me with quality experience working at a startup which I hope to pursue later in my career."

Noorisingh Saini, Content and Community Intern


"My internship at Glassdoor has opened my eyes to SEO optimization and the power of partnerships, which has given me a solid foundation of business development. My experience at Glassdoor parallels my interests at school as my major is Technology, Culture, and Consumer Behavior. Glassdoor has shown me how technology can shape culture, and in our case jobs and employment."

Kirsten Craig, Business Development Intern

We respect and value the intelligence and dedication each person brings to the company day after day. We strive to create an environment that is open and flexible to the needs of individuals. Here, it’s not just about the time you put into your work, but more importantly, about the quality of work you produce.


There are six core values that serve as a compass for our actions here at Glassdoor:

  • People Matter: value & respect each individual
  • Integrity: always do the right thing
  • Accountability: say what you will do, and do what you say
  • Passion: be committed in heart and mind
  • Ownership: treat the company and its resources as your own
  • Leadership: shape a better future

And, to make sure that it’s not all ‘work, work, work’, we blow off a little steam at monthly deck parties and quarterly off-site company events. You’ll also find some pretty active employees who bike to work, form company soccer teams or get together for hikes and runs on the nearby trails. Oh, and did we mention Bagel Wednesdays, Donut Fridays, and the healthy snacks that we stock in the kitchen? 

Plus the Glassdoor Culture Committee, made up of employees, helps to keep Glassdoor a best place to work. Part of the Culture Committee’s job is to help organize our quarterly awards program, The Smashies, in which employees nominate and select their fellow employees who exemplify the best of Glassdoor.

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


    Glassdoor obviously values it's own company culture to the highest extent, and with that, I would say I am extremely proud to say I work at Glassdoor. I work with really sharp people and individuals who try to push through bureaucracy and do that right thing. Pay is good, vacation is unlimited,, and a lot of trust is given to employees. I feel like I am on a team with my manager rather than it just being someone I report to at the company.


    For the Account Management team (growth) there is an extreme pressure on quotas and it has the potential to hurt customer relationships. Glassdoor has really great solutions to offer to companies, however, leadership has to understand that their budgets don't triple overnight. On that note, work life balance is pretty rough. I feel like I never stop working. You do have unlimited vacation, but I haven't found anytime to take any of it....

    Advice to Management

    Understand that your Growth team is fighting a really tough battle. Be patient in growing business and allow relationships to develop. The quota is far too high and will only drive really talented individuals to leave for other companies. Quota design really needs to be looked at.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Glassdoor.


    Applied online via glassdoor and then was contacted by a recruiter to set up a call. Did call with the recruiter in early Sept, she said she would get back to me the following week to give a yes or no if I made the hiring manager call round. After following up with her several times it is clear that I didn't make the next round but it would have been nice to get at least a form email from her saying so. For a site that relies on users to provide it free content that it can then use to draw in job seekers / job advertisers its recruiting team is polluting the brand. This will be the last piece of free content I contribute.
