I have been working at Glassdoor full-time (More than a year)
Super easy sales
- You close sales in 2-3 calls for Small or Medium Businesses.
- Pipeline is always moving because of the quick sales cycle.
- Everyone knows who Glassdoor is so when you are on the call it's always warm.
- Monthly quotas keep you motivated the whole quarter long which creates a fast-paced environment
Great culture for growing a career
- More than anything, people aren't judgemental. Be yourself and no one will give you a hard time.
- Managers have your back.
- You never feel like anyone is looking over your shoulder.
- You can expect to be promoted every 12 months if you're doing well and the managers like you.
- You learn sales methods from professional programs instead of learning everything on your own.
- People are suuuuuuuper friendly and helpful
- If you like to drink, the SF culture just seems to drink a ton so get ready for that
- There's an SF office, a Chicago office, and a few international offices. If you want to transfer offices, live in London, etc. Glassdoor is actually open to it!
Perks and Benefits
- CATERED MEALS are AMAZING! They've really found caterers who bring you great food every single day
- Health, Dental, Life is all covered for you and partially covered for family members but it's top-of-the-line insurance providers
- Work-Life Balance is something you determine with your manager. If you want to come in early and leave early, great. If not, most are expected to be here from 8-5 with an hour lunch. However, if you ever need to leave or stay home or go on a trip, they are super flexible and don't give you a hard time.
- They've had their struggles in the past but recognize that and have changed a TON.
- The VP of Sales will actually sit in a room with sales reps and ask them what needs to be changed and they actually listen.
- The CEO listens to feedback and consistently is trying to improve transparency and communication. He's also just a genuinely good guy.
Here are the few I've found
- This place is LIBERAL. Good for half of you, maybe bad for the other half of you. All of SF is really liberal in general but if you're already living here then you're used to it. People aren't judgemental if you are republican, but I feel like you'll just hear a lot of left-wing chatter and that might bug some right-wing folks.
- This place DRINKS! Once agian, good for some, maybe not for others. If you don't drink or don't want to be around people who do, maybe Glassdoor isn't for you. Once again, no one will judge at all if you don't, but there is a lot of that here.
- Leadership is still making changes to improve compensation and I would say change in general is a minor challange.
- Some leaders don't seem super strong, you know? Like, they aren't the type of people everyone wants to follow.
- Compensation is enough to get by, but could be better. Like I said, they are making changes to get you more money.
- If you perform, you'll get promoted. But there is definitely a "cultural fit" aspect to promotions as well. So know that to get promoted, managers will definitely have to like you. If you aren't likeable, you might not even get hired so...... nevermind
Advice to Management
Get strong leaders in place that have done this kind of thing before, not everyone has to be an internal promotion.
Figure out a way to pay salespeople more
Keep listening to us
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Mill Valley, CA (US)) in November 2017.
The process was intensive and definitely challenging at times. I felt that the various interviewers I spoke to were honest and thoughtful in their questions and feedback. By the completion of the final interview I left with the feeling that they diligently explored me as a candidate, and I was able to reach a deep knowledge of Glassdoor as an Employer. Overall, a very thoughtful experience.
