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

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


    Everyone here truly enjoys coming to work every day. I get to work with some of the smartest and most innovative people I have ever met. Very collaborative work environment, beautiful office and great company culture. There is an on site fitness trainer, workout classes, and gym. Generous amounts of food, free lunches, coffee & snacks every day. Lots of cute doggies around the office. People dress very casual in whatever is comfortable. Lots of fun company events and outings for people to bond. The company is fairly generous with supplies & technology for employees. It is an exciting time to join the company as we are expanding internationally & growing rapidly!

    Glassdoor is an industry leader in employer branding, which is a new and developing area for the recruiting industry. Sales team is selling something that we can feel good about, since it aligns with our mission. Accomplishments are recognized by teams, by the sales department, and at a company-wide level. The CEO even comes and hugs sales reps. Managers truly listens to employees and are always working to improve processes or solve problems. There is a lot of very hands-on training, so there is tremendous room for personal growth and skill development.

    The marketing team does killer campaigns to keep a healthy flow of inbound leads coming to the sales team. New SDRs get to work warm inbound leads, so you are usually cold calling people with some knowledge, interest or familiarity of Glassdoor. Tenured SDRs work outbound leads, which is great training on prospecting, getting to decision makers and navigating an organization. There are clear goals & room for growth. SDRs are promoted into Account Executive/Account Management roles. Quota is realistic and everyone is always willing to help others learn or grow. The team has clear rules of engagement that prevent overlap and promote fairness.


    There is constant change as part of a growing company, which can lead to some over-communication. BCC and reply-all feature needs to be used less in email threads. Salesforce needs to be cleaned up since there is a lot of bad data. Some teams seem understaffed for the work load (such as IT and sales ops).

    The commute is kind of a pain unless you live in Marin, which most people don't. Right now, the company only compensates for people who commute via bus, but most people drive independently and pay a lot for bridge tolls. Not a lot of healthy food or options for people with allergies/dietary restrictions. Feels like some people are working 24/7 although everyone has different perceptions of work/life balance.

    Inbound SDRs are highly dependent on marketing campaigns, so any lulls in marketing make it harder to hit numbers. Some of the sales reps don't understand how to work with SDRs and should communicate or show more appreciation for our hard work. The office is a little crowded as the company is growing & the sales floor can get a little noisy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for being so transparent and responsive to employees. Overall, our management inspires and excites me & i'm excited to see where you lead our company!

    Enterprise Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mill Valley, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mill Valley, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Glassdoor in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process at Glassdoor was very straight forward and moved quickly. My resume was sent to their recruiter by a current employee and after the initial 45 min phone screen I had a three person interview the next week. Before the in person interviews though I was asked to take a personality test online.

    The in person interview was three 30 minute one on one interviews. Following the in person interviews was a 30 minute web demo of any product (including if you wanted) to the same three people. We did not break character during the 30 minute web demo.

    Finally, I had a 30 minute call with the VP of sales to discuss what motivated me etc. All in all I was very impressed by the speed and efficiency of the interview process.

    Interview Questions
    • I was very surprised at the interviewers ability to ask detailed questions during the web demo. The realism of the demo made it feel like you were in an actual sales pitch, and not simply an interview.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. The salary, OTE, and additional compensation was conveyed to me from the beginning.
