Featured Review

Current Employee - Software Engineer

I have been working at Glassdoor full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

I love working at Glassdoor, its truly an amazing culture to be a part of. There's a lot of scope for making an impact.

Cons

I am afraid the pace at which innovation happens is just not good enough. Engineering has a few incompetent middle managers who barely understand the engineers' language. And the sad thing is they... don't even accept that they don't know everything and dole out instructions to be carried out for completing a task.

Advice to Management

It would do us well, if the management could understand what the average engineer feels. More skip-level meetings please!

Pros

- Purpose led vision. This transpires to staff and decision making frameworks at every level. - Amazing culture. Square is filled with passionate, motivated, clever and kind individuals and teams.... - Scale. There are lots of exciting projects on the horizon, the world is your oyster at Square, if you choose to lean in.

Cons

- Fast paced (not a con but a reality of any business at this scale and life stage). Only suited to those who are excited to embrace this.
