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

    Pros

    Small close office in a great location.

    Lots of support from management.

    Transparent culture where nothing is kept from you.

    Friendly colleagues. who like seeing you do well.

    Opportunity for international travel regularly.

    Great work life balance .

    Cons

    As with any small organisation going through rapid expansion there are some growing pains.

    Response rate from support services can be slow.

    New systems mean tracking your quota performance can be challenging.

    There are never enough Vit Hits in the fridge ;)

    Advice to Management

    Keep building in EMEA . Progress has been huge in the last few months and I am really excited to see what the business develops into.

    Continue to invest in facilities and perks to keep employees engaged and productive.

    As we continue to grow in size make sure not to allow the great culture that the business has to be lost.

    Pros

    Work with a really great and supportive team. The role requires a lot of hard work and dedication, but once you get your process down, reaching target each month is achievable. Most people on the team hit target and if you overachieve, there is a nice little bump in your salary. Sometimes, doing do extra hours is needed if you are behind on quota but generally work/life balance is fine.
    We have plenty of nights out and there is a great bond within the team, which is really important considering you spend most of your time at work. Overall, the culture here is really good - supportive, fun and everyone is passionate about what we do.
    Plenty of progression opportunities, as there are big expansion plans over the next year.
    Even if you are new, your opinions and new ideas are still very much valued. Each member if the team gets involved with interviewing for new team memebers, which means you get to meet who you work alongside!

    Cons

    There isnt a set plan around quota relief when taking holidays but our manager tries to accommodate some quota relief where possible.
    Seem to be a lot of sales ops issue recently etc. which can be frustrating.

    Pros

    EMEA office is expanding at a rapid rate meaning the buzz about the office is electric.

    You don't feel like a small fish in a big pond, higher management are approachable and ready to listen, proactive.

    Not your typical run of the mill sales position, everybody within the office genuinely wants you to do well.

    Cons

    To 'smash targets' is almost expected, it's rewarded generously, but you feel that added pressure.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the transparency burning! To be kept in the know of the business operations and growth plans is powerful, it's keeps you wanting to grow with Glassdoor.

    All round you're all doing an amazing job, so hats off to you.

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

    Pros

    - Early stages of growth so an exciting time to be in the company and a lot of potential for growth and progression
    - Still a small company so you can feel valued and your opinion matters, even if you're just a new member
    - Not a typical cold-calling environment - more of a consultative approach to selling which helps you learn a lot more about the product / service from the beginning of your career
    - A lot of nights out and company social events to enjoy
    - Relatively young team so there's a lot of energy and the culture is great
    - Great people to learn off and grow as a sales person
    - BAMF
    - Pizza Fridays
    - Free Snacks, beers, wine, VitHits

    Cons

    - Work life balance can be difficult at times and quota does not change if you have paid time off so this can be very stressful, especially for new starts which causes people to work unsociable hours and weekends
    - Promotion timeline and criteria has been very vague so expectations aren't properly set for new joiners

    Advice to Management

    - Have clearer expectations set for new joiners for promotion
    - As we start to grow, try to maintain the culture (BAMF, Kuddle etc.)
    - Be more realistic with quotas so that people don't feel guilty for taking time off

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

    Pros

    Glassdoor is full of great people who you can learn from. The culture is great with plenty of social events. There are plenty of benefits, from unlimited annual leave, private health insurance, a good pension scheme and pizza on Friday's.. We also have free snacks (crisps, popcorn, cans of coke, vit hits, fulfill bars, pistachios etc). We also have a fridge of beers, wine etc.
    The EMEA region is expanding so there are lots of opportunities to learn, grow and apply for new roles.
    The location is right beside Stephens Green in Dublin 2 so very central and easy to get to.
    Overall it is a great place to work, the team are all very supportive and are able to have a laugh!

    Cons

    -Promotion timeline has been unclear and vague, so expectations were not set properly for new starters which leads to disappointment and frustration.
    -Quota is quite high and can be stressful. You don't get quota relief when you take time off, so it is hard to hit your monthly quota/targets. The workload can be a lot and pressuring.
    - If you don't hit quota, your commission isn't great
    -Work/Life balance can be hard to maintain at times due to high quota

    Advice to Management

    -More transparency with regards to promotions and timelines
    -Each individual should be managed differently
    -Try to maintain the great culture we have as we continue to grow and expand!

    Pros

    Great team, really good training and learning curve. Everyone is working towards a common goal.

    Office is in a fantastic location

    Cons

    More challenging then it seems.. can be difficult to work towards, meet & exceed target assigned. Work life balance is hard to maintain if you are not on track to overachieve

    Advice to Management

    Longer ramping period. More transparency on changes within teams.

    Pros

    It's a very exciting time for Glassdoor Dublin, our EMEA HQ. There have been a number positive changes over the last 6 months, including a new local leadership team, new offices on Stephen's Green, and a great new attitude in the Dublin Office.

    Everyone feels excited about the journey we are on to Help People Find a Job in a Company they Love. Leadership is very open about the expansion plans and there is a strong sense of belief and togetherness. We understand that finding local solutions to local problems is the key to our success.

    Cons

    As the EMEA arm of the business, we are still reliant on our US cousins to implement requests which can add to delays in execution, which can be frustrating. Within the Sales Org, it still feels like we spend too much time dealing with Operational Issues which can restrain our growth.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to listen to the feedback and leverage what you are hearing to steer the ship. We really appreciate everything you have done to support the teams in Dublin and ask that you continue to help us grow, now more than ever.

    Pros

    - Comprehensive training both online self-driven and classroom based
    - Smart and friendly colleagues - managed to maintain scrappy, startup culture across different offices
    - Excellent solution delivering great results for clients
    - Opportunities for advancement and professional development

    The recent acquisition by Recruit Holdings means Glassdoor will be able to speed up the expansion efforts in EMEA and beyond. There's never been a better time to join! Like my colleagues, I'm extremely excited to see what the next 12+ months brings for Glassdoor.

    Cons

    Not enough green Vit-hits ;)
    No other cons so far

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing

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

    Pros

    I love working for Glassdoor! We are rapidly expanding in EMEA and the future looks bright. My favourite thing about working here is how close we all are as a team. My team are like a second family - we battle through the tough times and celebrate the great times together. The office atmosphere makes you feel like you can be completely yourself. I work with some really talented and driven people who are passionate about our company's mission.

    Glassdoor only hire the best and if you want to succeed here, you have to hold yourself accountable and be adaptable to change. Managers will always be there to support you, but ultimately you are the captain of your own ship.

    Our new VP has hired some really strong leadership who have made some really positive changes to the org. This is the first company where I actually look forward to coming into work each day!

    Cons

    Communications between US and EMEA needs some improvement, both from an IT support and operational side. Due to the time difference, things can take a little longer to get fixed/complete which can slow down operations here on the ground. Prioritizing EMEA requests in the US may help speed up processes. We've hired a new IT person in Dublin who is due to start soon, so this should be a great help.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to you ground staff and keep communications open and transparent.
