    I have been working at Glassdoor full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Glassdoor is the favorite company I've worked for so far in my career. First and foremost, the company has an amazing company culture. People are really good to one another here. While people are smart and driven, they also care about making sure that everyone works together well. Glassdoor is also having a lot of success as a company. Like any early stage company there are ups and downs, but over the 4 years I've...

    Cons

    None really. It's worth saying that we have some big competitors (LinkedIn, Indeed) in our industry so you have to bring your A-game. But I believe in what we're doing and our results show we are having success.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on company culture even as we grow.

    I worked at Glassdoor full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I am very thankful for the past 2 years that I have had at Glassdoor. It truly is an amazing place to work. I was brought on to the team to help start to Solutions Consulting program. My direct team immediately felt like family. Everyone has each others back, and truly cares about their teammates success. I was trusted with my work and learned a lot on the fly, which I loved. The Solutions Consultant team is growing and...

    Cons

    1. The travel can be intense at times, especially in the busier months 2. Career path isn’t 100% clear, but the team is growing which is positive 3. Data can take a long time to load and can be complex to pull, which caused some late nights working on presentations 4. Lack of new products is causing employee churn across the whole organization

    Advice to Management

    The sales team (Enterprise specifically) is itching for a new product. Over communicate and really listen to the Enterprise side of the business, otherwise you’ll continue to lose good people.

    I worked at Glassdoor full-time

    Pros

    Dog friendly office. Free lunch and snacks. The pay is finally starting to get competitive. Most people there are very nice. Most managers have flexible policies around work hours and working from home.

    Cons

    Something dark lurks within the waters of Glassdoor's Sales Ops team, and it has the team's members fleeing for their careers. 1) The Only Live Culture on the Team is in our Yogurt In the most recent employee satisfaction survey, the largest word in the word cloud was "toxic". Pressure to perform is sky-high, which is part and parcel of any Sales Operations gig. However, the team's culture has shifted dramatically...

    Advice to Management

    We keep putting people in executive leadership positions who have never owned that function before. That's a key part of developing leaders, but when massive sectors of your company are being run by individuals who have only experienced their current function through case studies, it becomes incredibly self-limiting. Ironically, there are plenty of case studies demonstrating this. You are hemorrhaging Sales Operations...

    I worked at Glassdoor full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Good Benefits Catered Lunches Free Gym and Gym classes

    Cons

    Very little room to grow, often those who get ahead do so through nepotism. Glassdoor does not pay at a competitive market rate which is ironic in itself. The company hires the same cookie cutter people from Marin and there is a serious lack of diversity within the company. There is zero culture the only decent events are Halloween but even then people hang out downstairs for about 20 mins and then go back to work.

    Advice to Management

    Work on creating diversity and learning how to keep talent. Its not a secret that the company has such a low retention rate.

    Pros

    Great teammates, feel truly able to be myself and "at home" at work. It feels inspiring to know our work makes an impact.

    Cons

    Changes and rapid growth may lead to some uncertainty, but we have strong leaders at the helm

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Appreciate the transparency and "walking the walk".

    I have been working at Glassdoor full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    * Great People from Peers to Leaders - working here is genuinely fun and the people are awesome! In addition to senior leadership being super personable and humble, I've made some great friends here and am almost always happy to come into work every morning to see my coworkers/friends even though I have the flexibility to work from home! I do not take this for granted as I know what it’s like from past jobs to dread going...

    Cons

    * Culture on the Decline - Our culture has suffered a lot recently, and I'm not sure why or how to fix it. The Fun Committee has pretty much disappeared. Monthly happy hours that used to be a blast have virtually zero attendance. It makes me sad how impersonal/automated company and department wide communications have become. * @Sales Leadership: Bluejeans Sales Huddles suck! It was way more fun and motivating when we...

    Advice to Management

    I know we as Glassdoor do our best to “walk the talk” of transparency and valuing the employee experience. I am proud to work here and love being a champion for Glassdoor and working with my clients. I would not do anything differently, and hope to continue wanting to stay here for several more years. That said, morale in Growth is pretty low right now and I’m starting to worry I won’t be motivated to get promoted to...

    I worked at Glassdoor full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    While I hate to start this off by mimicking the other reviews, the truth is that by far the greatest aspect of working at Glassdoor is the people. Though I worked on the Customer Success team, I became close with members across several other departments, and there really is a sense that everyone is in it together. The mission of the company to help job seekers find the job that fits their life and to help employers...

    Cons

    Keep showing the love to CS and letting the CSMs do their thing. Really, the only major cons I can think of would be assistance in paying the GGB toll to get to and from the office in Mill Valley and stability in book changes and CSM/AM alignment changes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do, and try to find a way to better connect the MV & Chicago CSM teams.
