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.

Chicago crew enjoying the sunshine

When we opened our Glassdoor office in Chicago in early 2016, we sent some of our most experienced employees there to help us open and build the special Glassdoor culture in a new place. Now our second-largest office with more than 150 employees, Glassdoor Chicago has become the envy of the Chicago tech scene. Our Chicago office cares about each other like family and provides clients with the incredible service for which we’re known. 


Our offices are located in the heart of the Fulton Market, a convenient location for many of our employees and prospects. Like at any quickly growing company, things can move fast. If you like the idea of getting in early and helping to build a lasting brand and company with other passionate people, we hope you’ll search “Chicago” under our Jobs tab and find the right role for you.

    I have been working at Glassdoor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    3 years later and I still feel so lucky to work here! My HR (People) leadership team supports me and constantly pushes me to grow. My goals and the goals of my teammates are clear, and we are encouraged to help each other and teach each other along the way. My opportunities feel endless here, there is always something new and exciting to work on around the corner. The benefits are extremely generous: free healthcare for employees, catered lunch every day, an onsite gym and locker rooms, Chariot to take you over the Golden Gate Bridge, and the best view of the Bay right outside your desk window.

    Cons

    The only constant here is change. If you can't roll with the punches and adapt to new processes, leadership, opportunities or whatever it may be, you might not enjoy the environment here. With that said, these changes teach us to be resilient and adaptable - both invaluable traits to learn in the workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to us like you already are. The surveys, the Huddles (all company meetings), and the constant communication from Robert all help to make us feel like we are in this together.
