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

Pros

Great culture. Great environment for collaboration. 100% paid medical, dental and vision. Get to wear jeans to work. Honestly there isn't one person I don't enjoy working with- management has done a great job with selecting the "right-fit" people to work here. We joke that there's a "no a**hole policy". I look forward to coming to work everyday.

Cons

Rapid growth, constant change, and a disjointed onboarding program (which is in the process of being streamlined).

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work. This is a very exciting time to be a Glassdoor employee!

    I have been working at Glassdoor full-time

    Pros

    I love working here; the people are enthusiastic and passionate. The company is innovative and forward thinking. Great culture, and exciting work, especially in a period of such growth. It doesn't feel like "work" and every day brings a new challenge or opportunity

    Cons

    - Older people: The average age is much higher than most similar Bay Area tech startups. While this has helped establish Glassdoor, there is some inertia because of this, and perhaps the company isn't reacting to new market developments at the rate that it should be.
    - Bureaucratic: Bureaucracy is odd for a company that is so small and relatively new, but because of the aforementioned inertia, there are often several levels of management one has to go to for a new idea to ever reach the surface. At a company that is growing so quickly, nobody ever has enough "bandwidth" to spend the appropriate time reviewing such ideas, and so innovation is often systemically discouraged.

    Advice to Management

    -Focus more on product: be more user centric. Improve UI/UX as that really matters to most users.
    -Improve social media. Glassdoor is a social media company, and yet its social media handles are underdeveloped. Invest in this.
    -While the company is great at employee recognition, try and enhance employee innovation (think Google 20% time) and foster new ideas

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

    Pros

    The team leader I had before I left was supportive and very helpful. The my peers were friendly.

    Cons

    Start up feel, you have a quota that doesn't stop growing. Very micro managing!!! Stressful work environment. High turn over. Low salary compared to the city. Some sales managers have favorites and didn't let you forget it!

    Advice to Management

    Don't have favorites. Also very one minded in process, not every process (sales strategy) works for every company.
