    New video: CEO, Robert Hohman shares his thoughts on Glassdoor's mission in life.

    CEO Robert Hohman Talks About the Glassdoor Mission

    We started Glassdoor in 2007 with the mission to help people everywhere find a job and company they love. Back then, the world had given us Yelp to find restaurants and TripAdvisor to find hotels. But people were making one of the most important decisions of their entire life-where to go to work-with almost no information.

    Do Satisfied Employees Impact Stock Performance? | Glassdoor Blog

    Walking through the campuses of today's Silicon Valley tech giants, it's no surprise most employees are satisfied. Colorful workspaces, flexible schedules, dog-friendly offices, casual dress codes, free meals, commuter shuttles and more make for a dreamy work environment compared to the staid workplaces of America's past.

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 here...you'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.

undefined

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 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been working here for 3 years now, and I seriously love coming into work more and more everyday. I am confident in the direction that the company is going, I love the leadership, the ability to make an impact, and the impact that our product is making in the world! It feels like we are making a huge difference in the lives of jobseekers - and that is AWESOME.

    Cons

    Some growing pains - communication is getting harder, with all the new people it has been tough to navigate the org at large. I feel like there are certain things that we have to rush to finish, and then nothing happens with it! Sometimes different parts of the company are working on similar problems, but not cross referencing each other to align their goals. The pay could also be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More overarching management on the Sales/B2B side would be helpful. It would be nice to have someone streamline communication and initiatives. Also improving the way that we communicate internally, too many emails, etc. We need to work on that as we grow. Salaries could be higher, but I love love love what I do here, so it's not too much of an issue.

    All and all, I feel super confident with the direction the company is headed and the talent and employees that we bring on board to help get us there! Love it!

    Sales Development Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sausalito, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Sausalito, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Glassdoor in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Straightforward. I was asked a lot of the same questions from different people interviewing me in the sales dept. After initial phone screening and interview, the final step is a presentation on yourself and your education, work experience, and desire to work at Glassdoor. Repetitive interview process as you tell your story 3 people on the team, plus the SDR manager.

    During the interview and presentations, talk about your failures, overcoming hard times, and seem REALLY excited about phone sales. They don't care a lot about who you are, but they do want to hear about your sales successes--make sure you really want to be calling companies all day, merely setting appointments for the execs. This is the entire role of an SDR and if this thrills you, you will fit in just fine.

    I was not as excited for the particular role of calling companies all day than I was about working for the company, which seemed to be the main hesitation to bring me on to the "team." The job itself seems mindless and repetitive but the company has a smaller SDR team than Trulia, Salesforce, etc. so could be good for those coming from those kinds of companies.

    A red flag brought up multiple times to me by several on the team, was how many companies call angrily about negative reviews left by disgruntled employees. How would I handle such angry clients? This question was posed by different people throughout the interview process so it must be a common issue they deal with on the sales team.

    Ultimately, the sales team seems to be a mold you either fit--or you don't and they will vote "yes" or "no" on you, just like a reality TV show once you step out of the room after your presentation.

    Very informal and the whole team is under 30. I felt like I was back in high school in some ways. Still, there seem to be a lot of happy people there and if you fit the mold or want some practice interviewing around, it's worth the trip out there.
