I have been working at Glassdoor full-time (Less than a year)
Glassdoor is at that sweet spot where we we've matured out of the crazy start-up phase and have the right leaders and plans in place to ensure stability, but we're still growing rapidly enough that there's a ton of opportunity to make a difference and advance quickly within the company if you prove yourself. It's great to see transparency and other company values embodied from the CEO on down. My managers have always been committed to helping me learn and find success. Free lunch in Mill Valley is great and I have found compensation to be competitive for late-stage start-ups.
Like any start-up, we're still figuring stuff out and some days the list of challenges can feel overwhelming. Owning a car to drive to work from SF is very expensive.
Advice to Management
Keep encouraging your managers to invest in people development. Expand the office in San Francisco. Consider 401K matching to help people build good savings habits.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Mill Valley, CA) in February 2018.
The interview process was very thorough. The first step was a screening call with HR to learn more about my background and interest in the role. This was followed by a 40-minute phone interview with a Director in the Business Operations group. This interview consisted of a case interview, as well as some questions about my background.
After the phone interview, I completed a homework assignment, which involved data analysis in Microsoft Excel, as well as a presentation in Microsoft Powerpoint. I had two days to complete the assignment, and I probably spent about 10-12 hours on it.
After this, I had final interviews in the Glassdoor office. This consisted of four 45-minute case interviews with members of the Business Operations team, as well as a few shorter informational interviews with other members of the team.
The entire process took about two and a half weeks from my first interview until I received an offer.
