    Why Now Is the Best Time Ever to Join the Business Operations Team at Glassdoor

    In the midst of the information revolution, companies have more data at their fingertips than ever before. But that data doesn't mean much if there aren't people who can interpret it and strategically act on it. That's where Business Operations, or BizOps, comes in.

    Glassdoor Turns 10! - Glassdoor Blog

    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.

Dual monitors and top technology

Walking through the doors at each Glassdoor location, the view may be different but the feeling is the same: pride. 

We’re go-getters who feel passionately about our mission and are pushing forward with full steam to seize it. Every department and office location has a buzz of energy as we excitedly help move the business forward and look for ways to improve, innovate and disrupt our industry. Working at Glassdoor means collaborating with incredible people, blazing trails, and continuously challenging yourself and others to lead from the front. We’re certainly not perfect, but we do our very best with a high level of integrity and continuously learn and adapt. We believe everyone has a voice and place high level importance on treating each other with mutual respect. 

We embrace emotional intelligence here, and that means hands-on training to develop the tools you need to connect with colleagues through relationship building and constructive dialogue. Our employees also receive three days a year just to volunteer, and while benefits like 100% paid health premiums enhance the experience, it’s the work we do and the people we work with that we like best.

We’re hiring across all offices and departments. Check out our Jobs Tab above to find the perfect fit! 

Staying fit in Mill Valley

Just beyond the Golden Gate Bridge, Glassdoor is headquartered in beautiful Mill Valley, California. We are perched right on the water with incredible views and walking trails at our front door. Our office is accessible through multiple transportation options, making it easy for employees to get to work from all corners of the Bay Area. 

Between the views, dog friendly office, on-site gym, free fitness classes, game room and other treats  you’d expect at a Bay Area technology company, you’ll find some surprises too. While we provide catered lunch and healthy snacks, we also donate our lunch money occasionally to local schools and non-profits. But don’t just take our word for it, check out our Benefits and Reviews tabs to hear from those who know best— our own employees.

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

    Pros

    I wake up every morning pumped to walk into work... sounds cliché, but so true! The culture is unlike any company I've come to work for or interviewed for. Everyone in the Glassdoor community is truly genuine and extremely helpful in all aspects. Upper management will help you focus on your next career steps, in setting up mentorships and having one-on-ones to meet your goals. Since I've started as an OSR (only about 3 months ago) 3 of my teammates have been promoted so growth in the company can be fast and is expected.

    We moved into a new office on Fulton Market, which is completely beautiful with a great view of the city.

    Your coworkers will become family!

    Cons

    As a new team, the role is continuously changing, but management's positive energy and great communication helps for an easy transition.

    Advice to Management

    Every day you have a smile on your face and bring great energy to the entire office. The team appreciates everything you do for us and the company!

    Senior Business Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mill Valley, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Mill Valley, CA).

    Interview

    Rigorous process and positive experience. Recruiter screen, phone interview with case + behavioral questions, excel/PPT homework assignment, then an on-site with three cases and an additional behavioral experience. While the process was time intensive, in my experience, it was on par with the level of investment required for BizOps roles at other tech companies. I appreciated how the process enabled me to meet various people at different levels across the team, which helped me assess whether the team and role would be a good fit for me.
