What kind of career opportunities exist at Glassdoor?

Pros

A lot of opportunity for personal growth, great coworkers both in office and abroad, lots of internal support in terms of programs and tools. I worked at Glassdoor pre-COVID but admire how they supported their employees transition to other career paths when things got hard

Cons

Hard path to promotion , culture fit goes a long way

Advice to Management

It's hard to give advice when no one has any idea what will happen during COVID, but your reputation will grow positively as long as you support your people and in turn evangelize GRIT

Why do Glassdoor employees quit?

Pros

Great culture and benefits. Product is pretty easy to learn. Plenty of resources to help you be successful. Company did take care of employees with severance when company did major layoffs.

Cons

Covid caused a lot of layoffs. Felt almost blindsided when 200+ of us were let go. We were told over and over that with Recruit being parent company there was plenty of cash to be able to handle the shift. Then very quickly we were told out of the blue we'd have an emergency meeting and we were given the news that we were being laid off after continuous times being told we are in great shape. It wasn't transparent. It almost felt as if Recruit took advantage of the Covid situation to do what they were probably going to do later. The whole market was affected but the transparency of being in great shape and then the big shock is what hurt.

Advice to Management

If Recruit is running the show then be transparent about it. Continue to provide training for sales teams. There wasn't a strong sales focused training around the brand and over all sales strategy.

How are promotions handled at Glassdoor?

Pros

Great people, autonomy, opportunities to promotion, and an amazing culture. Coming to work never felt like a drag here, it was a place where filled with individuals with true GRIT. It was not odd to make lifelong friends here, many of us did. Unlimited PTO. Great health benefits.

Cons

Pay could be better for entry levels. With that being said, being laid off due to COVID19 Glassdoor did the right thing by making sure their workers were taken care of one last time before parting ways. Thank you GD, I’ll miss you so much.

Advice to Management

Keep leading with transparency. Invest in products for your sales team (yes even your SDR’s) and keep hiring diverse backgrounds. Make sure there’s plenty of communication for your remaining sales members because they will need your full support with rebuilding.

Great people, autonomy, opportunities to promotion, and an amazing culture.
