    I have been working at Glassdoor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    We're in a good place right now. The acquisition by Recruit Holdings has completed, the Sales and Growth teams are doing an excellent job and international expansion is at the top of the agenda.
    The next few years look very exciting in terms of opportunities for personal growth and new experiences. I am very much looking forward to Glassdoor launching in new markets and ramping up the whole EMEA operation. We've got a lot of momentum right now and the backing of the senior leadership team.
    The new London office is cool and everyone in the team is smart, fun and hard-working.
    We have a strong EMEA leadership team and functional heads in London and Dublin.
    I wouldn't want to work anywhere else, right now.

    Cons

    I write a review of Glassdoor every year and this is the first year that I am struggling a little bit to find genuine cons. At least, cons that matter to me. Some would say that the benefits package could be improved further, but we have made good progress.
    Local IT support has been really poor, but we have already hopefully solved that issue with a new hire starting soon.
    HR support from head office has always been a bit thin on the ground and many processes could do with improvement, but again, we have local HR support now and that should smooth things out going forward as that person untangles the mess.

    Advice to Management

    We've got the right people on the bus in EMEA to accelerate Glassdoor across the world. Keep giving us the budget and support we need to make the next chapter really successful and build on the foundations we have already established.
    I recognise and appreciate efforts to connect more frequently and meaningfully with the teams in London and Dublin.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor.

    Interview

    Initial phone call with a guy from HR, then a technical interview via Skype where they asked me questions about front-end (CDN, mobile optimisation, latency), back-end (mostly APIs) and security (SQL injection, XSS). After that, I went to their office for the last stage of the process, two technical interviews and one with the HR with focus on values.

    Overall, I didn't find them very organised or particularly friendly.

    Interview Questions
