“The growth potential here is tremendous, and everyone at the company really does care about you and your goals.” “Great teachers, leaders and motivated employees.” “Before I go to sleep I think about this job and get excited for the opportunities I have in the next day.” These are just a few things that current and former Account Executives (AEs) have to say about working at Glassdoor.
With an industry-disrupting product, a tremendous and engaged customer base and a powerful brand, Glassdoor is already changing the way that people hire — but we need talented, collaborative and passionate sales professionals to help us get to the next level. To that end, we’re hiring a number of Account Executives, particularly in the small to medium business (SMB) tier.
What’s in it for you? To start, a fun and supportive team environment, comprehensive healthcare packages, location-specific wellness programs and modern office spaces overflowing with free snacks and beverages — but above all, Glassdoor offers nearly unlimited opportunities for professional development and growth. As an advanced startup, Glassdoor offers a unique combination of stability and autonomy, resulting in an environment where employees have both the resources and tools they need to succeed as well as the ability to take ownership of their career path.
With SMB sales in particular, you’ll be able to have a significant impact right away.
“In SMB sales at Glassdoor, you are able to work with fast-growing startups and really help them solve hiring needs with our solutions — you also have exposure to speaking with the C-suite prospects,” says Director of SMB Sales Elizabeth Hajjar. “A lot of them are very interested in their personal and company rating on Glassdoor and want to understand how they can enter the conversation happening on Glassdoor.”
As a result, SMB Account Executives are able to form close working relationships with clients in which they’re relied on as experts.
“It’s great to really understand the pains they are facing in recruiting and employer branding and show them just how Glassdoor can help them,” Hajjar adds. “We have a great retention rate in the SMB tier, filled with clients that continue to work with us year over year because of the results they are seeing and how Glassdoor is helping their recruiting efforts.”
And best of all, you’ll be doing this with a team that supports you every step of the way.
“The SMB org at Glassdoor is collaborative. Of course, we squeeze in friendly competitions, but we also share ideas, highlight what is working and what is not — we want to win as a group and as a company,” Hajjar says.
“Glassdoor is like a giant family. The managers I’ve had at Glassdoor have been some of the best I’ve ever had. They respect you, and do whatever it takes to help you grow and get to where you want to go in your career,” agrees Account Executive Meha Munshi. “If you do have a question or problem, you’ll have people dropping what they’re doing to help you out. No one tries to one-up you, or refuses to help to try to get ahead.”
Because of this commitment to growth and development, AEs can move up the ladder quickly at Glassdoor.
“I started as an AE on October 10th of 2016 and was promoted on October 1st of 2017,” says Rob Pezza, Enterprise Account Executive – Staffing. “My time as an AE helped me become an expert in all things Glassdoor and work with a multitude of clients in a wide range of industries.”
This doesn’t just give AEs a temporary boost in their career — it sets them up for a long-term career path.
“Glassdoor is a great place to grow your career and, from what I’ve seen, values promoting from within. As opposed to promoting based on tenure, they allow individuals to set and achieve realistic growth goals if they put in the effort and hit success criteria,” Pezza adds. “I see myself continuing to grow in the Sales organization at Glassdoor and eventually moving into a leadership role.”
