I have been working at Glassdoor full-time (More than a year)
1. Amazing work life balance
2. Colleagues across all levels are very friendly, caring, understanding & helpful
3. Great culture probably the best so far I've experienced in my career so far
Less innovative culture for sure as lot of manual work is done by many teams resulting in high cost , more time, less efficiency and zero skill development for future, I feel no one is looking into it or it's just being ignored where I can clearly see from my side that so much improvement can be done across so many teams, need to have more innovative culture promoting automation and scale to increase efficiency and reduce operational cost and human errors for sure.
Advice to Management
Total Compensation is probably 20-25 % less than the fair market value as per the bay area standards for people with high end technical and functional /business skills with strong proven experience in the industry. Need to definitely up the ante for higher RSU to retain talent. Recognize and Reward people with talent and skills who can help Glassdoor for better future with strong experience and skillset rather than putting too much emphasis on how long they've been here.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Glassdoor (San Francisco, CA (US)) in April 2021.
Was referred. It was an okay process overall.
Was contacted by HR for an initial phone screen, but it was an odd call. It was a very one-sided conversation with mostly HR talking about Glassdoor, the role, and the salary range. I really didn't get to say much, but we moved on...
...though there was almost a month gap between this call and the phone call with the hiring manager (to the point where I believe they thought I wasn't a good match after the phone screen). I was expecting coding during the call with the hiring manager, but it was questions about my experience. I felt this conversation did a better job selling the job to me, and I was assured the on-site would be fair and nice.
And for the most part, the on-site was fair, no trick questions, people were nice to talk with. Except for the first interviewer, who I felt like was not interested in seeing me succeed. They kept on raising questions, accusing me I was incorrect about [X] when in fact I was talking about [Y]. We did a coding problem, but due to miscommunication, I didn't do the coding problem the way they had wanted me to do it (it really didn't help that they, unlike everyone else, called me by phone instead of the provided Zoom link). When the interviewer realized the hour was up, they promptly hung up with no chance for me to ask questions.
I guess another thing to note was that another person in HR who scheduled my on-site was really helpful and accommodating, but the HR personnel who did my phone screen and called me about my on-site results.... really did not seem interested in my success.
