No opinion of CEO

I worked at Glassdoor full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

- Fresh Fruit Monday, Bagel Wednesday, and Donut Friday
- Flexible work hours/ lunch breaks
- Vibrant atmosphere w/ a bright future (inside jokes among among established employees, youthful/fun environment- in Sales/Marketing at least)

Cons

- I essentially had to fire myself. My supervisor decided to limit the tasks that I performed to the point that I questioned my status as an employee and initiated a meeting to discuss (Tuesday). Apparently the decision to let me go was made the previous Thursday unbeknownst to me.

- In this meeting it was stated that I was probably going to be let go Friday (my birthday) if I hadn't taken the steps to open communication about my job status sooner.

- I was let go b/c I do not possess technical skills that were not listed on the job posting, or mentioned in the interview- and was not given the option to learn these skills on my own.

- A LOT of sedentary sitting and alienating/lonely if you don't have rapport est. with co-workers

Advice to Management

- Improve communication: employees should know where they stand, or be told how to fix an error before being terminated.

- Promote personability AND professionalism further (i.e. I scheduled a few meetings that my supervisor did not go through with, so I was left to apologize to the ignored potential partners (emails read "___ never called me like we discussed. " and had to reschedule appointments.)

Thanks for your feedback. I do want to acknowledge that 2012 was a tough year for us in building our sales team, and your feedback is very valid. We made a lot of mistakes as we grew as a company... More

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

    Pros

    Unlimited snacks
    Friendly, energetic, and positive employees
    Extremely fast growing
    Really effective product - something I genuinely believe in
    Ability to make an impact in the company at an early stage
    Founders started very successful companies in the past
    Amazing and supportive company culture
    Ridiculously good health care

    Cons

    Training was dis-connected, but it is being improved
    Accounts are still scattered - not clear on who is working which Tiers or regions
    Office is kind of far away and hard to access if you do not live directly in Sausalito, plus there is the $5 toll if you live in San Francisco
    Compensation plan still needs ironing out

    Advice to Management

    Please pay attention to how you divide the accounts amongst employees

    Also, a gym membership and/or free lunches would be great

    I have been working at Glassdoor as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A fun working environment that helps teach while also providing free range to work and learn on your own.

    Cons

    Some are often so absorbed in their work that they don't speak often, especially if they don't know you.
