I have been working at Glassdoor full-time (More than a year)
Glassdoor's culture is very collaborative with great people. There's a high level of autonomy and trust to make an impact. Love my coworkers and miss being in the office together!
Like most companies right now, burnout is high. Leadership is addressing with company days off and managing expectations and workload.
Indeed partnership is great and tough at the same time. Partnership has been successful and seeing the business impact. Tough because Indeed has a different culture and is much larger than Glassdoor, so often hard to make progress and fight for what Glassdoor needs.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Glassdoor (San Francisco, CA) in April 2021.
Was referred. It was an okay process overall.
Was contacted by HR for an initial phone screen, but it was an odd call. It was a very one-sided conversation with mostly HR talking about Glassdoor, the role, and the salary range. I really didn't get to say much, but we moved on...
...though there was almost a month gap between this call and the phone call with the hiring manager (to the point where I believe they thought I wasn't a good match after the phone screen). I was expecting coding during the call with the hiring manager, but it was questions about my experience. I felt this conversation did a better job selling the job to me, and I was assured the on-site would be fair and nice.
And for the most part, the on-site was fair, no trick questions, people were nice to talk with. Except for the first interviewer, who I felt like was not interested in seeing me succeed. They kept on raising questions, accusing me I was incorrect about [X] when in fact I was talking about [Y]. We did a coding problem, but due to miscommunication, I didn't do the coding problem the way they had wanted me to do it (it really didn't help that they, unlike everyone else, called me by phone instead of the provided Zoom link). When the interviewer realized the hour was up, they promptly hung up with no chance for me to ask questions.
I guess another thing to note was that another person in HR who scheduled my on-site was really helpful and accommodating, but the HR personnel who did my phone screen and called me about my on-site results.... really did not seem interested in my success.
