Our culture is driven by our seven core values: Transparency, Innovation, Excellence, Judgement, Accountability, Integrity and Grit. Whatever you do at Glassdoor you are empowered to do your best work every day.

Glassdoor London Team on a volunteering day

Glassdoor has had an office in London since 2014 and we are growing fast. The office culture in London is typified by cross-collaboration, friendship, respect, hard work and fun. We are a diverse group of multi-skilled individuals who are focussed on creating something special, namely a company where everybody wants to work and that provides career-defining experiences. 

We all work hard to nurture a positive vibe in the London office, based near Borough Market in SE1. We have various groups and committees to organise everything from team lunches, fun nights out, Christmas parties, “Women in Glassdoor” events, volunteer days and impromptu spin classes. We undertake charity work from time-to-time, the Halloween quiz has become a firm favourite plus we are quick to celebrate individual and team success. 

Many people in the London office have been around for a long time, in Glassdoor terms, and most of the original 10 people working for Glassdoor in the UK are still at the company. We are inclusive and we have a variety of nationalities, backgrounds and skills!

Glassdoor Co-Founders

Glassdoor is one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites.

Built on the foundation of increasing workplace transparency, Glassdoor offers millions of the latest job listings, combined with a growing database of company reviews, CEO approval ratings, salary reports, interview reviews and questions, benefits reviews, office photos and more. Unlike other job sites, all of this information is shared by those who know a company best — the employees. In turn, job seekers on Glassdoor are well-researched and more informed about the jobs and companies they apply to and consider joining. This is why thousands of employers across all industries and sizes turn to Glassdoor to help them recruit and hire quality candidates at scale who stay longer. Glassdoor is available anywhere via its mobile apps.

Glassdoor operates as a part of Recruit Holdings’ growing HR Technology business segment. Glassdoor is headquartered in Mill Valley, California and was founded by Robert Hohman, Rich Barton and Tim Besse in 2007, before its launch in 2008.

Glassdoor’s European hub is in Dublin, with additional offices in London, Paris and Hamburg. We have sites and apps for 20 markets around the world, and in 2019 we launched in Singapore, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Spain and Italy. Our UK site launched in 2013 and we hired our first London-based employees in 2014.

6 January 2020 Posted by Christian Sutherland-Wong

When Glassdoor debuted nearly 12 years ago, our co-founder and then CEO Robert Hohman wrote, “We built Glassdoor for a very simple reason – because we believe that work matters.”

Today, as I step into the role of Glassdoor’s second and next CEO, I’m honoured and humbled by the opportunity to continue working towards achieving our mission of helping people everywhere find a job and company they love. 

As we enter a new decade, this is an exciting time for Glassdoor because the future of work is top of mind for everyone. Two trends stand out to me:

1. Job seekers and employers are looking for trusted platforms and resources to help them navigate a fast-changing, increasingly complex jobs market. Job seekers want to understand which skills will make them successful, how AI and technology will impact their work, and what new working arrangements may surface that change how they work and how they interact with their employer. At the same time, employers want to better understand what is top-of-mind for job seekers and employees.

2. Great corporate culture is critical for both job seekers and employers. Employees rank “culture and values” as the top factor driving long-term workplace satisfaction, according to Glassdoor Economic Research. And the Business Roundtable, a prominent group of CEOs from the world’s largest companies, recently declared that employees arethe central purpose of today’s companies. 

Glassdoor is best positioned to capitalise on these trends because we offer insights and information that is not available anywhere else: millions of job listings, company reviews, CEO approval ratings, salary reports, benefit reviews and more. Job seekers are better informed because they come to Glassdoor for every phase of their career — from when they just begin to think about a potential new job, right up through negotiating their offer. Employers across industries and sizes are better positioned to hire quality candidates because they can showcase their unique workplace culture.

I am committed to furthering Glassdoor’s legacy by innovating in these areas where we make the greatest impact. For job seekers, that means creating new products and tools that get us closer to achieving our mission of helping people everywhere find a job and company they love. For employers, that means we will go deeper than ever to help them attract and hire quality talent that contribute to business results and their company culture.  

Thank you Robert and all of my Glassdoor colleagues for starting us on this journey. Please join me as we take Glassdoor into our next chapter. Let’s do this, together.

Christian

    I have been working at Glassdoor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Huge market opportunity, strong & passionate teammates & transparent leadership. Honestly, I'm not sure I've worked for a better company anywhere else. I am genuinely excited to come to work and see my colleagues, and work together to build on the opportunities here in EMEA.
    The overall team is very supportive and there is very little pettiness which is pretty rare in a Sales environment.

    Cons

    Don't hold back addressing negativity across teams. As we grow quickly, we need to remember to stay positive and focused on the longer term goals.

    Advice to Management

    As we continue our hyper growth across EMEA, it's important to remember where we came from as a company. I understand our culture will evolve, but remember to continue the transparency and company mission that made our brand what it is today.

    SEO Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (London, England).

    Interview

    I was initially interviewed by a very friendly man working in HR. Then I had too many interviews with too many different people to count. After a 1.5 month process, the final answer to my application was negative.

    Everybody was polite and seemed to know what they were talking about.

    But come on. At least 7 interviews spread out on 1.5 month, to finally hear a big NO. Really? Does a company need to interview you 7 times for 1.5 month to realise you're not the right fit?

    I feel like I lost my time, time I could have used to try to get hired somewhere else.

    It's ironic that a company specializing in company/interview reviews doesn't take the time to analyse their own process and realise that you don't need 1,5 month to know if a candidate is good enough for the job.
