    Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Glassdoor (mehr als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    Senior leadership has a lot on their plate, but the learning and leadership opportunities are there for anyone willing to put in the extra effort! Great options for daily free lunch if you are lucky enough to work in Mill Valley. Nearly all of the employees here feel passionate about working in an environment of empowerment, collaboration, focus, fun, and friendship.

    Kontras

    I've been working 10-12 hour days just to keep up. Executive leadership is a little cliquey and their style of communication can be condescending, even if the workforce is marginally younger. Problems tend to be ignored even when employees are calling them out. Senior management tend to have the only say.

    Rat an das Management

    Communicate with your employees, foster an atmosphere that empowers a level playing field, you will be surprised how many great ideas and what an amazing impact your non-senior/ non-executive staff will make in regards to our product, environment, and overall future. We are building this together... empower us!

    Pros

    Awesome leadership, free lunch, healthy snacks, mostly genuinely motivated/hardworking teams. Great perks, off-site events, and work that really feels like it matters.

    Kontras

    Recently quite a few job descriptions have changed significantly with major additions to workload (massive amounts of training (internal and new hires), proposed QBRs, individual projects, strategic proactive work as well as formal consulting, etc. The changes are welcome and exciting, but our compensation and potential for commission should be addressed. We're all working really hard (which is constantly stated in meetings) but if we're not going to be rewarded and taken care of for our hard work then I suspect more people will leave.
    The CS org is not allowed to work from home on a regular basis which frustrating. The most popular commuter benefit was recently cut and most other options tack on at least an extra hour each way. With the $7 daily bridge toll/gas/traffic commuting out to Mill Valley it would be extremely helpful and appreciated if we could have more flexibility in being able to WFH. With both slack and weekly communication with our managers regarding our current standing we should be trusted to behave like adults and be able to manage workflow outside of the office. Other teams openly do so and have said it has greatly impacted their stress level/productivity/and work-life/balance.

    Rat an das Management

    The office location element paired with a heavier workload and lack of flexibility in scheduling will cause friction over time. Be mindful of both the recent changes in workload as well as the general vibe amongst your new and old employees. With a couple incredible people recently deciding to leave I fear that a mass exodus could start to happen again if people don't feel like we're heading in the right direction.

    Pros

    Free catered lunch. Incredible spot in Mill Valley. Open PTO. Many teams doing things that are either bleeding edge or incredibly innovative, making it feel like everything you do, shows in how the business is growing.

    CEO is energetic, down to earth, personable, and approachable. Had constant company wide conversations about the direction of the company, and then individual conversations with each department about how the direction impacts them.

    Salary for the Bay Area was a little lower than average, but we were not located in San Francisco so most areas were more affordable. Medical/Dental/Vision benefits are 100% if you are single, but are about average if you have a family.

    Kontras

    No 401k match. Next to no food near the office, in the event the catered food was awful or was a day there was no lunch.

    Certain teams have management stubborn to the extent of failure. I was brought in as an engineer assigned to re-architect a underpowered and aged environment, to make it scalable, sustainable, and efficient.

    Every step of the way, road blocks from my direct manager included undermining my technical experience in lieu of their seniority, constantly assigning tasks that exceeded a 60 hour a week workload, was completely unorganized in assigning priority to tasks that were newly assigned every week.

    For example, a task I was assigned to work on 2 weeks ago that was said to have the highest priority, was suddenly de-prioritized and had another task assigned in its place. However there was an expectation that I would still need to complete the previous tasks with the same sense of urgency, if not more.

    This made it nearly impossible to complete any project, and was told that I had an inability to complete tasks or assignments, which (in their opinion) was a display of poor performance on my behalf. This made it feel as though I should not believe in a work/life balance, and should not only spend time at work doing tasks/projects, but spend a significant amount of time at home doing the same. There was an "always online" mentality that stemmed through the team, and it made some of the team members feel completely exhausted in their position.

    When trying to own a project or have a stake in decision making as far as architecture and technology used for items that I was directly responsible for, this was routinely made for me. My input was often dismissed, with the reasoning being I had not done my research or that I needed a thorough report written in order to even acknowledge my input as an item of discussion.

    The executive management my team directly reported to often had completely opposing ideologies and opinions (versus my direct manager) on priority regarding my tasks, responsibilities, and the type of technology and architecture we should be/could be implementing to better the company. At my resignation, much of the "issues" that were reflect upon my performance, were in complete opposition to what I was directly told by the executive management of my team. It left me feeling a little lost, and as though the treatment in my current situation was personal.

    I did not, however, see this sort of management or attitude on other teams. I do believe Glassdoor is an incredible organization to work for, that can provide ample opportunity to many different people. I do not, however, believe that my specific department is one of the successful areas of the business due to the aggressive management style that seemingly suppresses creative thought or individual input in their roles, duties, or ability to make decisions for the team.

    Rat an das Management

    Robert is a great CEO. He has an innate ability to rally the troops and motivate the entire company. Really enjoyed the town halls and his energy.

    Without using names or departments, there needs to be a process that arbiters from HR can be involved with. Managers and executive management who speak with employees individually need to be synced. In my particular situation, it felt like I was spoken to by my direct manager and executive manger, both of which had completely different opinions on my performance, priority of and number of tasks, and concerns in what was causing the lack of accomplishment, which resulted in what felt like a hostile and volatile situation that forced me out of my position.

    Pros

    - Great culture and talented people in the Chicago Office. Chicago has some of the most dedicated and loyal people you will meet. Their hard work will inspire you to become better in your role.

    Kontras

    - Lack of support from the Mill Valley Office. Despite growing from 50 employees to over 200 employees in just over a year and with three office moves during that time, department leadership visited only during office moves (for a few hours at most) and never returned, therefore never able to see day to day workload at site during typical days of operation. IT exec leadership cancelled every skip level meeting (1:1) for the past seven months.

    - No growth potential - I was stuck doing level 1 work with no ability to work on bigger projects because I was supporting 200+ users by myself. Support employees in remote sites from Corporate are not listened to, compared to team members based in the Corporate office in MV.

    - No Transparency - I wanted to stay at Glassdoor but was told there was no room for advancement unless I moved to MV, after I handed in my resignation they upgraded my position to a Lead title (still in Chicago). During my time here I was never given opportunities for development as I was isolated from the team. I enjoyed working with the Chicago office and it was extremely disappointing to have to move on to find personal growth and development - more frustrating watching many other members of the Chicago team being given the chance for personal development, growth and additional responsibilities/promotion

    Rat an das Management

    - For such a small department there have been a lot of departures, find out why

    - Spend more time at the remote office to get a clearer picture of day-to-day operations

    - When someone resigns, reach out to find out why or at least say goodbye on their last day. My leadership team did neither.

    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Glassdoor gearbeitet

    Pros

    - Fairly solid benefits with catered food, gym on site, cell phone stipend, 100% covered health care
    - Beautiful location in MV

    Kontras

    - Everything else. I say with so much regret how much I disliked working here and the negative toll it had on my energy and personal life.
    - Not a company to come in at the mid management role - no conversations about growth and future trajectory even from HR
    - Incredibly micromanaged and siloed work streams - these are two separate issues, but one in the same in they promote tactical and frankly boring job duties. Your job description is exactly your job with no potential to take on more expansive or strategic projects.
    - Did I mention micromanaged? You have very senior leaders pivoting data in tableau and making microscopic decisions that should be happening at a junior level. There seems to be very little trust in senior leaders to delegate and coach to truly have their teams grow.
    - All of these combine to create an environment where teams are siloed (no team or company wide bonding events) - I sat across a person for 3+ months on a different team who never said a single word to me. Again, not a team environment where people are friendly, open and easy to work with, making true cross collaboration tough and forceful.

    So who does succeed @ Glassdoor now? The MBA/ops crowd who can be particularly aggressive.

    Unfortunately since leaving, I've had several colleagues' friends and friends of friends ask for my input on potentially taking a job at Glassdoor post-offer or in late interview stage. With horror, I recoil and say no, to only hear that they too have heard the same thing across their network. That is a huge issue for the company and recruiting - the word of mouth that occurs after someone leaves. I see open roles on the website that have been open for months to a YEAR (including my former role). Unfortunately my experience is the average and not atypical.

    Rat an das Management

    Hire the right people with diversity (and I don't mean just gender and ethnicity) - hire nice, good people with broad experience/backgrounds. Not everyone has to be fresh out of business school.

    Invest in your people with resources, coaching and allowing growth - all of them, not just the 5 hand picked as the golden eggs by senior leaders.

    Read your exit interviews - will give you insight into frustrated employees on their way out.

    Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Glassdoor (Weniger als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    Culture: Glassdoor has a unique culture that makes you feel as though upper level management is just as accessible as your teammate. Very welcoming culture that sees itself as a community

    Building: Beautiful office that makes coming to work every day that much easier

    People: Never have I felt uncomfortable asking for help from someone within the org. Everyone here wants to see the company as a whole and its individuals succeed.

    Upward Mobility: Specifically in the role of an OSR you are expected to be promoted within a year and my manager has done an incredible job of advocating for that

    Supported: I always feel as though my voice is being heard and appreciated. Being a part of the OSR team has been such a fun experience because we are a new team that is figuring out how to meet our full potential. That being said our feedback is an essential part of that process and I genuinely feel like I am a part of something pivotal within the company.

    Kontras

    The role is constantly changing and being adaptable is a must. I love this aspect of the role but the only downside of it is not being able to master one thing and once you feel like you have worked out the kinks and become an expert another change comes along.

    Rat an das Management

    You are awesome and I'm proud to be working with such a great company! I do feel like there is room for improvement in regards to training. Since we are such a new team, there was not much training relevant to the OSR role and it would be great to have more valuable training material.

    Pros

    I wake up every morning pumped to walk into work... sounds cliché, but so true! The culture is unlike any company I've come to work for or interviewed for. Everyone in the Glassdoor community is truly genuine and extremely helpful in all aspects. Upper management will help you focus on your next career steps, in setting up mentorships and having one-on-ones to meet your goals. Since I've started as an OSR (only about 3 months ago) 3 of my teammates have been promoted so growth in the company can be fast and is expected.

    We moved into a new office on Fulton Market, which is completely beautiful with a great view of the city.

    Your coworkers will become family!

    As a new team, the role is continuously changing, but management's positive energy and great communication helps for an easy transition.

    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Glassdoor gearbeitet (Über 3 Jahre)

    Pros

    Glassdoor has provided me with some of the best memories as well as a great foundation to become a top sales person. The sales team has a culture of mentorship and learning. I was able to learn from my manager and my peers on a daily basis to continue to get better. The people I worked with became some of my closest friends and having that "family" feel really allowed me to enjoy my job.

    Kontras

    Over the years there were a lot of growing pains. We grew too quick, we weren't all on the same page, hired some of the wrong people, and had poor communication. From all of that we have learned from our mistakes and "course-corrected" and things that were our weaknesses have become strengths. The one thing we continue to hear is the pay is too low, which it is. The one reason people leave is because although they love this company and their job, the pay isn't as competitive.

    Rat an das Management

    Continue to over communicate. The times when things were rough were due to lack of communication from the top down. As long as you communicate change, things we're doing well and things we aren't doing well you will continue to earn the trust of everyone. Stick to the mission and I have no doubt Glassdoor will do amazing things.
