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

    Pros

    The culture of the company is incredible and people are amazing to work with. I have relocated for this role and the company have been very supportive. They continue to encourage employees to innovative on their product and I love working for a company that is actually driving a positive change across different organisational cultures. The office environment in both head offices is excellent, with excellent facilities. The employee recognition program here is without doubt world class!

    Cons

    You need to be ready to work quickly and manage multiple tasks. At times there are too many meetings and we could do with better working practices that continue encourage employees to innovate but also to be mindful of how to work smarter. More clarity is needed around the future strategy and plans explaining how we are going to execute against them. But these are all issues that can easily be addressed and current direction company is going is impressive! I would have no concerns about starting a new role here!

    Advice to Management

    Bring employees with you on the journey- explain more about the strategy and future plans. Continue to invest in people development.

    I have been working at Globoforce Limited full-time

    Pros

    Globoforce is a growing, changing company where I get to work with lots of clever, friendly people on challenging projects - and its mission is not far too off the oft-repeated phrase in the first episode of Silicon Valley - to "make the world a better place".

    Their products and services promote gratitude, recognising others and positivity in general and I like working somewhere that focusses on these things.

    The office building is great, really bright, great kitchen and about to get even better as we're taking the whole building and will have super views from the top floor. We'll get to more about its location in the cons... although it is convenient to the M50 and on a direct train line from the city centre.

    The ambition and drive of our CEO is inspiring and I feel exciting times lie ahead here - I plan to stay around for them :)

    Cons

    Park West is not the most exciting although Liffey Valley's not far, there's an excellent lunch delivery option and the direct train line to the city centre has really improved access (there's a bus too). Would definitely prefer if you could plonk the office building down beside Pearse St. dart station for me though!

    Pros

    It is a really great place to work with great people.
    The support you get from your manager is second to none.
    My Manager is very approachable and understanding if life interferes with work and will always be supportive
    The courses available to employees are amazing.
    Great canteen facilities with breakfasts available
    Great for celebrating successes and milestones

    Cons

    Park west is not the most exciting location but it is close enough to Liffey Valley bb

    Pros

    I have been working with Globoforce for a number of years now. It has been a wonderful journey. The exposure I have received has been second to none and to work through so many challenges with the support of a fantastic team has given me a great sense of achievement. The company is at the cutting edge of everything it does and is on such a growth path that career opportunities are endless. Despite the pace of change the company embraces a culture where everyone is seen as a person and not just a number. The company also places great importance on work life balance and strives to support its employees to ensure they deliver their life's best work. I really don't see myself leaving Globoforce as I believe I can fulfill all my career ambitions here.

    Cons

    The location doesn't have a huge amount of amenities close by.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. You are putting all the foundations in place to support the business as it scales. It is critical that to have the systems and processes that are needed to set the company up for success.

    Pros

    Always driving to the next level. Not afraid to change with the time. Gives ownership to those doing work to allow them to grow themselves. Really looks after the well being of the staff and ensures they grow and develop with the company.

    Cons

    As people tend to stay in the company long term there is not always a position available for people to move into when they are developed enough to move to the next level.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees and keep being as open with them all. Its great to be apart of such a transparent company.
