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

Pros

Pros – I have worked at 5 companies in my career; Glassdoor is clearly the best for multiple reasons.

1) Great culture and energy - the people are amazing!
2) We are growing like crazy - fun and disruptive solution, people are passionate about Glassdoor
3) I strongly believe we have a fantastic solution that is helping people connect with the right opportunities to improve their lives, as well as helping employers find the right people to build better companies
4) Decent compensation/ equity
5) No dress code!
6) Access to execs - can make my voice be heard - I left a review that marketing wasn't communicating enough with sales, now marketing is doing a fantastic job of letting the sales team know what is going on with products and content - great improvement!
7) Sausalito feels like vacation every day
8) I don't feel unnecessary pressure to perform like I have felt at other companies - I will produce more because of this
9) I feel appreciated when I perform!
10) We are moving to a brand new office and will have lunch provided every day!
11) Flexibility to work from home! This is crucial! I was given the ability to work from home a few days a week because of high performance - I probably would have burned out having to commute every day for 2-3 hours

Cons

There are a lot of changes with startups: shifting managers, accounts, processes, etc

Advice to Management

Increase in base salary would be nice, especially for high performers - it's expensive to live in the SF Bay Area, Fastrak for commuters! More extrinsic rewards, training on competitors, car and phone allowances

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

    Pros

    Working for Glassdoor has been eye-opening... after years of dreading going to work every single day, having anxiety-ridden Sunday nights and clock-watching my way through life - I finally love my job. Working here is a pleasure and I am motivated every day by the people around me. There is a team-effort mentality here and I feel fulfilled day-in and day-out. There are no egos here - incredible intelligence, productivity, performance and even more humility. From top to bottom-- the positive culture is incredibly strong. We live our mission. I LOVE this place. Don't ever change, please.

    Cons

    Waiting for pay increases can be frustrating in start-up land, but we hope that you know you know who is in it for the long haul with you...make sure to continue to positively reinforce that so you don't lose some of your loyal followers... this is a very expensive area to live in and we want to stay with you!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the culture as we grow...don't hire too many corporate types...the best part of this company is the warm & cozy feel. No jerks allowed at GD.
