Glassdoor Turns 10!

Today, Glassdoor celebrates a decade since we first introduced transparency to the world of work. When we first launched in 2008, we never could have imagined how much we have transformed how people search for jobs and how companies recruit. Today, 57 million people come to Glassdoor to read over 40 million reviews and insights for nearly 800,000 companies and browse millions of jobs to find the right one for them.

We have gone through a lot of change during the first 10 years, which is good. Change means growth. And it has set us up for a future of exciting change ahead as we launch into a new chapter.

After a decade, co-founder and CEO Robert Hohman feels like we’re “just getting started.”

“I am incredibly excited about the opportunity in front of us to help even more job seekers find the right opportunities for them while also helping more employers attract high-quality candidates.”

Our mission to help people everywhere find a job and company they love continues to be our true north. More than ever, Glassdoor is a job site uniquely powered by people on the inside, offering valuable information critical to the job search. We exist to empower you.

To every job seeker and employee: Thank you for engaging with our platform - whether you’ve applied to a job on Glassdoor or shared insights into your workplace experiences. Thank you for believing in the importance of transparency and the need to do away with the shroud of secrecy around salary and company information. We couldn’t have done it without you.

To every employer: Thank you for your business and for believing that business can be made better through greater workplace transparency. As we accelerate forward, we are focused on innovation. We strive to make recruiting easier and faster. We’re bringing creativity and courage together to invent better ways to hire that will benefit companies in the short and long term.

We’re just starting to break down barriers and cross borders to do what’s not been done before. We’re here to win, and to do it with pride and excellence every single day.

Here’s to the next 10 years! Onward!
