Does Glassdoor offer a quarterly bonus?

Pros

I am so thankful for all the amazing people I work beside everyday! The people in the Enterprise Sales & Customer Success department are some of the most genuine and fun coworkers I've ever had. There is also a lot of great knowledge sharing between peers, which makes work more enjoyable and interesting. There are many pros to working here including: - managers that treat you like a real human - they really try to be good managers! - a lot of autonomy to manage your book of business / client interactions - flexibility to work from home a few times per month - ability to work on projects outside of your immediate role that interest you - cute workplace events that happen at the office (eg. hot chocolate bar during the holidays, drag queen bingo during pride week, etc) and a great Workplace Experience team

Cons

The direction Glassdoor is taking seems unclear to me, and the lack of innovation is concerning. The product team does not listen to what the customers are asking for or excited about. It seems like directors and VPs are focused on reorganizing how the company works internally more than focusing on innovation. There are constant shifts in KPIs, org structure, and quotas that make everything seem arbitrary. This year, the CSM leadership changed the metric which 70% of our bonus is paid out on, and gave us no way of tracking our progress to reaching that quarterly goal! I appreciate change and trying new things, but it's really concerning when your pay is affected by changes that you can't track. With all the org changes come lots of internal meetings that managers are always stuck in. It seems like instead of being on the floor with the individual contributors, managers/ directors are constantly in strategy meetings. Besides team meetings and 1:1s, there is very little involvement/ personal connection between leadership and individual contributors. A lot of first time managers/ directors. Lastly, we use a data tool to create custom presentations for enterprise clients that barely works. Our systems are so out of date, that it takes 15 min - 2 hours to download a custom report for a client. This drains a lot of time, and creates frustration.

Advice to Management

Thank you for always having good intentions for Glassdoor employees. I am confident management is working to improve the experience for employees and clients in the future. Hoping for more innovation in the new year.

What is the salary like at Glassdoor?

Pros

I loved working at Glassdoor. Lots of great people, wonderful team and manager, the pay was good, great benefits, office amenities were amazing. Great desks, laptop included, etc. When we got laid off to covid, we got to keep our macbook laptop and they provided us with a 3 month severance. I mention this because I think it shows what kind of a company it is

Cons

As such a growing company, there were definitely some growing pains in terms of communication between teams/ departments. Also, glassdoor as a product has it's quirks, and due to growing pains, our support team isn't big enough to support and help out as many clients as we have. as a result, had to deal with a lot of complaints

Lots of great people, wonderful team and manager, the pay was good, great benefits, office amenities were amazing.

What are other benefits and incentives like at Glassdoor?

Pros

The vision of the company (Good People. Transparency. Innovation. Grit.) is something I believe we practice everyday at Glassdoor. Glassdoor has set the standard for me with respect to how I should be treated as an employee. The work is challenging, the compensation is competitive and the internal culture is very special. More specific to my role, I believe that the leaders in the sales organization have a genuine belief in our mission, and in the value of our products. It is inspiring to work with leaders who have integrity and consistently choose what is right over what is easy. Also, our sales operations department is responsive and smart.

Cons

There is more opportunity to support individual professional/personal development at Glassdoor. I appreciate the investment in organized sales tools, but there is a lack of freedom and resources for individual employees to achieve their own personalized growth strategies. At the higher level of the sales organization there is a lack of female representation in the single revenue contributor roles. The reason for this lack of representation needs to be acknowledged more openly at the company. See Advice below.

Advice to Management

It is my understanding that Glassdoor is looking at the parental leave policy currently, my advice below is related to the post return from leave care and attention provided to the Glassdoor employee. Please closely examine the return to work post parental leave transition. Ideally, with a deliberate focus on the biological mother return to work journey. If possible from a legal perspective, do not create a one solution fits all return to work plan. For example, a mother returning to an individual revenue generating position after 4+ months on leave will likely experience a dramatically lower quota performance upon return than a parent in the same revenue generating role who was only on leave for 1/4 of the time. This difference needs to be accounted for in the Glassdoor return from parental leave strategy. I understand that it can be uncomfortable to professionally discuss the unique challenges that face working parents (specially, mothers) when they return to work, but I think Glassdoor needs to do this in an authentic way ASAP. Specially, I think that there should be ownership handed to the local HR teams to request face to face feedback from mothers/fathers at different stages post return to see if they feel supported. If the above can be achieved, the result may be a stronger representation of females (specifically, females with children) at the higher levels of the individual contributor roles in the sales organization.

The work is challenging, the compensation is competitive and the internal culture is very special.

Does Glassdoor offer a daily bonus?

Pros

My time at Glassdoor was truly amazing! Amazing people, amazing culture, amazing opportunity for growth and to make some good money! Some of my best friends outside of work are my coworkers!

Cons

Due to COVID, 300 employees were laid off. This was hard to deal with, especially as leadership was ensuring us that our jobs were safe over the last 3 months. It is what it is though, still an amazing place to work!

Amazing people, amazing culture, amazing opportunity for growth and to make some good money!
