    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.

    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.
