I have been working at Glassdoor full-time (Less than a year)
Glassdoor is at that sweet spot where we we've matured out of the crazy start-up phase and have the right leaders and plans in place to ensure stability, but we're still growing rapidly enough that there's a ton of opportunity to make a difference and advance quickly within the company if you prove yourself. It's great to see transparency and other company values embodied from the CEO on down. My managers have always been committed to helping me learn and find success. Free lunch in Mill Valley is great and I have found compensation to be competitive for late-stage start-ups.
Like any start-up, we're still figuring stuff out and some days the list of challenges can feel overwhelming. Owning a car to drive to work from SF is very expensive.
Advice to Management
Keep encouraging your managers to invest in people development. Expand the office in San Francisco. Consider 401K matching to help people build good savings habits.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Mill Valley, CA (US)) in January 2018.
I had a great experience with Glassdoor. Questions, tasks and expectations were clear from the beginning to the end. I was interviewing with another company as well and the professionalism at Glassdoor compared to the other company really set them apart.
After 2 phone screens with the recruiter and hiring manager mostly covering my current position, I was invited to an onsite interview. I was asked to do a mock presentation for a hypothetical client. I was asked common objections and felt that it was very clear. I then had one on one interviews following the presentation.
