Company Updates

  • Since Glassdoor was founded 12 years ago, we have been focused on driving transparency in the workplace and job market. We believe transparency is one of the most powerful forces for good in the world. But how can we aspire to change the world if we can?t even change ourselves? Today, we published a few examples of the types of information we will begin sharing with people interviewing and working at Glassdoor. At its core, transparency empowers people with the right information to make the right decisions. Whether that be a job seeker making the decision on where to work, or an employee making decisions as part of their day-to-day job. Better decisions are made with greater transparency. But there?s another powerful product of transparency. Transparency drives accountability. And with this accountability, transparency drives people and companies to lift their game. Our vision is for a world where radical transparency holds companies accountable to strive to become better employers. This is just the beginning.

Glassdoor – Why Work With Us?


Inside the London Office

Here at Glassdoor, we’re on a mission to help people everywhere find a job and company they love, and we look for colleagues who want to join us on that journey.

As one of the world’s largest job sites we are experiencing massive growth in the UK, and we aren’t slowing down anytime soon. We are a high-profile tech company with big ambitions. We are changing the way that people look for jobs and how companies hire, and you can help us hit new heights. 

Our culture is what we are most proud of. It’s our personality. It’s what defines us.

And at the foundation of every company’s culture is its values. Our mission has been the same since day one: to help people everywhere find a job and company they love. That is our North Star, the compass we use to guide every decision we make. It is our “why.” Why we exist and why we strive for success.

Our values underpin everything we do and are the “how” behind the work we do.

With this in mind, Glassdoor leadership and employees spent several months defining Glassdoor’s values. We did not want to create a laundry list of generic traits like integrity, honesty and excellence. Sure, those are all very important, however, we expect everyone to operate with those principles. 

Instead, we approached the process by considering, one, what is distinctively Glassdoor and, two, what is most essential to our success.

Ultimately, Glassdoor identified four company values:

  • Transparency
  • Innovation
  • Good People
  • Grit

 

We understand that these are challenging and uncertain times. Whether you are adjusting to a new rhythm of working remotely, coping with uncertainty, or working hard to communicate effectively with your workforce, Glassdoor is here to help.

As you navigate the unfolding events, we hope our growing COVID-19 Resource Library can be of service.

What is Glassdoor doing to protect its own employees during this time? 

Glassdoor’s top priority is the health and safety of our employees. As the COVID-19 coronavirus has evolved into a global health concern, Glassdoor made an early decision to ask all employees to work from home until further notice. We acted fast to minimise the risk to employees and help lower the probability of the spread of the virus to our staff, their families and the communities where we operate. 

We continue to provide support to our employees by providing interactive development opportunities, from practical tips such as ergonomics while working at home, through to safe online spaces to share how our people are processing all the changes to their lives, the company and the world around them. 

Glassdoor has created new Employee Resource Groups to nurture community and advocacy platforms for underrepresented groups at Glassdoor.  We also created opportunities for our employees to voice their opinions through informal channels such as Slack, plus frequent pulse surveys to assess employee sentiment on a more macro scale. 

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!

If this sounds like your cup of tea, then why not apply to one of our open jobs?

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.

    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.

    Customer Success Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Glassdoor (London, England) in March 2020.

    Interview

    1st interview with HR to screen cv versus skills needed
    2nd interview with hiring manager going throw experience versus skills for the job.
    Between the 2 interviews there was 10 days.
    I received a call from HR with the outcome (no selected) prior to automatic email saying I was not selected so nice touch to call first.
    The 2 people I had contact with (HR) and Hiring manager were both of them friendly and professional giving a good image of the company.
    Shame I was not a fit due to tech skills otherwise I would have chose this company . The role was for London and they were located in NY
