Startup Monday is ABCey’s weekly post that features the best and brightest companies in the San Francisco, Bay Area. They are often companies that we have our eye on, or have worked with in the past & would like to share with friends and followers of ABCey Events! Today’s Startup Monday highlights Glassdoor!
Headquartered in Mill Valley, California, Glassdoor is one of the world’s largest & fastest-growing job search engines. They offer valuable insights from the people who know best – the employees who work there. Moreover, the company holds a growing database of millions of company reviews. These include CEO approval ratings, salary reports, interview reviews, and more. In addition, unlike other jobs sites, all of this information is entirely shared by the employees. Nonetheless, with around 800 employees, their mission is simple: to help people find a job at a company they love. In response, they help companies recruit and hire truly informed candidates.
More Fun Facts: Glassdoor
Founded in June 2007 by Robert Hohman, Rich Barton and Tim Besse, the search engine has grown rapidly in funding & employee growth. First, the company received its first financing in 2008, receiving $3 million in funding, before launching its website. Additionally, by 2015 they had over $160 million total investment. Furthermore, the company has continued to increase their funding by millions in the past few years. As a result, their own site stats updated Q1 2017, show 41 million users of their site and 5,800 paying employer clients/partners. Presently, starting with just the 3 founders, they now have over 800 employees, with offices expanding in the U.S. and Europe.
Why We Love Glassdoor
Here at ABCey we love using Glassdoor to find new employees and interns! Additionally, it is a great resource for getting your brand name out there and for attracting new talent! Overall, no other job site gives you this level of visibility as to what other employees are saying about their experience at a company. What a great tool to use!
We love Glassdoor and would love to do an event for them!
