Employees rate Chicago 5.7% higher than the overall average
I have been working at Glassdoor full-time (Less than a year)
We have hired some truly amazing people in the last 10 months who are going to take our Chicago office to the next level of awesomeness! We are also moving to our new Fulton market office, and I cannot wait!!!
2016 had its challenges as we were figuring out a lot of new things. Being in a new location with a new team lead by new managers had it's not so happy moments, but we are reaping the rewards now.
Not entirely sure what the parking situation will be like at the new office, but rumor has it that it won't be as good as we have it now.
Advice to Management
Chicago is one of the main reasons the company is doing so well. With the growth we are seeing and the $$$ we pull in, please hook us up with food on Tuesday and Fridays.
The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Chicago, IL (US)) in November 2017.
This was the most fun and interactive interview process I have ever been apart of. The whole point is to really get to know the candidate, which many companies lack nowadays. The interview consisted of 4 steps and the whole process took about 3 weeks. The first step is a brief phone screening with a recruiter - I had Linda who was an absolute gem to work with through out the entire interview process. The second step was a phone call with the hiring manager - Come with a reason why you are leaving your current position and why you would be a good fit for GD. The third, and in my opinion, the most difficult part of the interview process, was the product pitch. GD provides you with all of the necessary tools to be successful - Be sure to practice, practice, practice! The fourth and final step was an in person meeting with sales managers/directions. This portion was surprisingly pleasant and conversational - Not nearly as intense as most interviews. I heard back the same day and am ecstatic that GD has welcomed me into their family!
