Pros

The handling of COVID and our pivot to remote work was excellent. We had everything we needed to transition. Benefits and comp package are great, and lastly good people. I had two of the most wonderful managers you could ever ask for, fantastic sales partners and a supportive team. Everyone is also genuinely willing to help you succeed. Jacob, the VP of diversity and inclusion has made incredible strides within the company in a short amount of time. Though our diversity initiatives were late, the executive team truly cared and got behind the message. They want to learn and do better. Christian has gotten a lot of slack in these employee reviews due to the layoffs but he and his CHRO have good hearts and truly care about Glassdoor and every current and ex-employee.

Cons

The new strategy shift made career pathing within client success seem almost pointless. Also, Glassdoor is extremely late to the diversity and inclusion space. What makes it worse is that there are employees within the company who are not on board with expanding diversity initiatives and will openly make it known. As a Black employee it was honestly disheartening and hurtful to witness.

Advice to Management

One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to your employees. It may be hard, but try and take into consideration all the unique backgrounds and experience that we bring to the table.

Pros

One of the things I like most about working at Glassdoor is our recent renewed focus on our values and that we live them everyday. I see examples of transparency, innovation, and grit all the time and of course, I work with a group of not just good, but great people.

Cons

I’m encouraged that Glassdoor has made commitments to improve diversity and inclusion because I feel that we could do so much more.

Pros

Glassdoor had good people sprinkled throughout, good people with good hearts, wanting to take their skills, expertise and collaboration with thought leaders and actually build a high-quality product. But only a few, and not enough.

Cons

Will make this quick. Leadership (non-product) was a biz ops party through and through, and at times, felt a lot like you had to be "one of the guys" to be heard. With a basically all-White management team, and just a sprinkle of diversity across the senior-level directors does a disservice to what you guys call yourselves - an open company. A company with the opportunity to be the solution job seekers need, especially during these times, yet it was clear they weren't ready to sacrifice short-term growth for a long-term strategy focused on building a strong product. Though the culture was "open", not once did I feel like a part of the team. It's a dog eat dog culture, all about bettering yourself and not working as a team. Managers need to learn how to empower, mentor and provide air coverage for their teams. Being a manager isn't about taking the credit by putting yourself in the spotlight, it's about coaching and leveling up your team.

Advice to Management

Build a bench that is inclusive and strategic. Take a bet on ideas that are cut from a different cloth. Stop stifling the ideas and excitement, instead nurture, unblock and support. And instead of just talking the talk, walk the walk - truly be diverse, transparent, open in culture and collaborative. And stop making it seem like you have to fight one another to get a seat at the table. Open that table up to hear from more voices.

Pros

- remote work available - great benefits - workplace experience team is amazing at trying to keep employees engaged

Cons

- Leadership is very disengaged and the majority are interviewing elsewhere - Transparency has been lacking in the past 12 months and a merger with Indeed is inevitable even though leadership keeps saying its a "partnership" - Lack of diversity. Leadership wants a quick fix for fixing the diversity issue but does not want to fix the underlining problems within the organization regarding bias. - HR is not authentic. Every interaction is fake and they just keep hiring people from their own networks creating an unauthentic groupthink situation. - All teams are running on fumes and employees feel so burnt out. It is not until the majority of the team quits, that they will open a backfill. - They claim you can be your authentic self but if you aren't the person they want you to be, they will hold it against you and will hurt your career growth.

Advice to Management

Listen to your teams and give them the support they need. Stop hiring the same background for leadership so you can enhance your culture. Spend time in the All Hands talking about true business decisions instead of sidestepping around the problems.
