What is the company culture like at Glassdoor?

Pros

This review is long overdue. Since I started with the company, I have felt a strong connection to our values and a deep desire to grow with Glassdoor. Local leadership is approachable and always willing to hear our ideas (and float them upwards when they are good ones!) Growth is possible as long as you continue to put in hard work month after month. Quota is challenging, but achievable, which is the whole point of having a sales quota. The benefits for working parents are abundant: GREAT maternity leave, with 100% coverage AND commission compensation (this is unheard of!); flexibility with working from home when needed, and a culture of great people who love your children and embrace them as part of the Glassdoor family. The people who work at Glassdoor truly make our company as wonderful as it is. I am excited to come to work and see friends everyday. Glassdoor has some of the best talent in the workforce and it shows. There are TOO many people here to learn from! I haven't even considered any outside opportunities since I have been here because Glassdoor is a company that truly cares about you and your family. THAT, for me, is why I remain loyal to this company and I am looking forward to growing my career here.

Cons

At times, it can feel like SDRs are not as important or valuable to the company. Recently, however, leadership has been giving our SDR team shoutouts and if we continue to do that, it will add to the value we bring to the company. SDRs are usually the first voice or outreach to many companies, so investing in more training can improve sales and ROI over time. Sometimes it can be challenging working directly with teams in Mill Valley as a lot of communication is improved via proximity. We are, however, given plenty of tools to help improve this challenge.

Advice to Management

I think the change in the SDR leadership will be refreshing and an outside voice could be the catalyst into an even more powerful team. I think all teams would benefit from outside professional sales trainings, whether it is a training focused on cold calling, best email practices, or others of that nature. It would be great to see the Mill Valley executive team in the Chicago office more, although I know this is tough with busy schedules!

How was the interview at Glassdoor?

Pros

Opportunities for internal candidates to be interviewed for promotions and cross functional opportunities

Cons

We do not treat our internal candidates the same as external candidates. Not only was it a multi-month long process but the recruiters paid no attention to the process. The recruiter actually missed our first "interview" with no explanation. It was a less than pleasing process from there. While they provided interview prep, which was welcomed, there was no follow up after any interviews and no expectations set for timelines or feedback. I love working at Glassdoor but if this was an external candidate, this would be a horrible process and first impression.

Advice to Management

We treat our employees outstanding and this should be translated to the internal interview process as well.

What is the hiring process like at Glassdoor?

Pros

Glassdoor is one of the best companies to work for!!! Inclusive culture, collaborative teams, knowledgable yet down to earth people and excellent leadership makes this place 10/10. Every individual seems to be hand-picked by the hiring team and is not only capable of doing their job right but is also a great cultural fit. In spite of this rigorous hiring process, any contradicting behavior is observed within the team, immediate action is taken to resolve the conflict in the best possible way. Let's just say that there is zero tolerance to any adverse behaviors which could demotivate anyone to love their job here. The strong and empathetic leadership with great values flowing top to bottom makes this place unique. Every individual is willing to learn new things and is always excited to share their knowledge to train others. The mission to help people find the job they love starts at home and is expanded to the outside world. Join Glassdoor if you are someone who believes in this mission, loves to work with people, focuses on solution-based approach, encourages critical thinking, constantly learns from the failures and most of all values the inclusive culture!

Cons

None as such. It is a mid sized company with a lot of great initiatives but limited workforce. Although, this works in favor of many since the ownership and success can be closely experienced. This also gives an opportunity to learn and participate without having any restricted boundaries around role.
