Gartner Employee Reviews

Pay attention to how companies handled COVID

Senior Event Manager (Former Employee) - Stamford, CT - May 8, 2021

One month into COVID, Gartner let go of about half of their events team. We were not told of any efforts by the company to try to keep staff employed. Folks who had been with the company for 15+ years were let go, and now all those roles are open again, and Gartner won’t even interview those former employees.
This is not the place to be if you’re hoping for a company that cares about its employees. It’s not the place to be if you’re looking for diversity in leadership. It’s not the place to be if you want to feel secure in your role in the event of another pandemic.
Gartner had the potential to do the right thing; they made more money during the pandemic on virtual events than they made in the year prior with live events. And they STILL let go so many hardworking, loyal associates. They should be ashamed and honestly hope the CEO loses sleep at night over the salary he kept while his former employees struggled to buy groceries.

If you plan on hitting the job hunting trail in 2016, or at least sniffing around a bit, a new report from Glassdoor is loaded with employee-derived information to help narrow your choices. By sifting through and analyzing the massive amounts of data submitted by workers through its ratings and reviews, Glassdoor was able to compile a comprehensive list of the 50 best places to work in America, as we head into 2016.

The report bases its conclusions off of ratings submitted by employees on a one through five scale. An employee submitting a ‘5’ for their employer, for example, would be classified as ‘very satisfied’, whereas a ‘1’ would mean they were ‘very dissatisfied’. By compiling and analyzing those ratings, Glassdoor put together their final list.

“The Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards are the only workplace awards that recognize employers where people love to work solely based on the authentic voice of those who really know a company best – the employees. For anyone hoping to find a job and company they love, these companies stand tallest for providing outstanding work environments and company cultures,” Robert Hohman, Glassdoor CEO and co-founder said in a press release. “I am proud to expand these awards across North America and parts of Europe this year and to celebrate the 2016 Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards winners in earning this tremendous achievement.”

Among the common themes seen among the top 50 this year, per Glassdoor, were that the employees felt valued, the companies were mission and values driven, perks and benefits were off the charts, and that there was plenty of opportunity for advancement.

Though we’re concentrating on one aspect of the report, there’s actually more to it – there is also a list dedicated to small and medium-sized companies (less than 1,000 employees), for example. But you can dig through at your leisure, and check out the top companies in individual cities, like New York, Los Angeles, or Chicago.

We’re not going to dive into detail about each company that comprises the top 50, but we’ll give you a quick rundown of those ranking five through 50 – and you can see the final five on the following pages. Here’s are the initial 45, including 13 newcomers for 2016, followed by the top five:

Facebook employees gave the company an average rating of 4.4, which shouldn’t be all that surprising. Facebook has been one of the hottest employers in America for some time now. Here’s a testimonial, provided by Glassdoor:

“The culture is really amazing and in my opinion even better than the media portrays it. The perks are wonderful, but the professional experience is even better! I feel the energy everyday working here.” – Facebook Product Specialist (Menlo Park, CA)

4. Hubspot

Hubspot also snagged a 4.4 rating through Glassdoor’s system, putting the marketing and sales company in the upper echelon of American employers.

“Leadership places a heavy emphasis on employee growth across all divisions, from tuition reimbursement to offering opportunities to take on challenges outside your core responsibilities. Transparent culture from top to bottom. Management actually listens to employees, and makes quick changes to structure if/when needed.” – Hubspot Employee (Boston, MA)

3. Guidewire

A software company that works with the insurance industry, Guidewire is among a slew of Bay Area employers that made the list – though only one other company was able to beat its rating of 4.5.

“Guidewire hits the sweet spot between ‘startup culture’ and ‘big corporate culture.’ There is the small company vibe, wherein you can talk to everyone and get things done.And there is enough room for flexibility in processes for individuals and teams to choose what works best for them, while having the support of the larger organization.” – Guidewire Employee (Foster City, CA)

2. Bain & Company

“Incredibly supportive culture with an incredible focus on learning and mentoring. Highly intelligent, down-to-earth and fun people. Focused on making a real impact for our clients.” – Bain & Company Associate Consultant (Boston, MA)

The top employer on Glassdoor’s list is Airbnb, the disruptive vacation rental company that is throwing legislators and the hospitality industry into disarray. Airbnb earned a 4.6 rating through Glassdoor’s ratings system.

“Amazing people, vibrant workplace, and an unbeatable culture that is real and not just something posted on a wall/website. I literally could not ask for a better work experience. Also, pay, insurance, perks, food, parties, and growth opportunities are topnotch.” – Airbnb Employee (San Francisco, CA)

25 Companies Where The Interview Process Is Brutal

US Markets Loading...HMS

For the third year in a row, consulting firm McKinsey & Company has been rated as having the most difficult interviewing process by employees.

Glassdoor's ranking placed McKinsey at a 3.9 difficulty rating out of 5.0, beating out tech giants like Google and Facebook, which were also in the top 25. 

The average interview difficulty rating on Glassdoor is 2.8.

Newcomers to this year's list include BlackRock, Microsoft Citrix, HubSpot, and Vistaprint.

Some companies still ask crazy brainteasers, despite Google's claims that they have nothing to do with success, while others stand out for running candidates through lengthy tests and round after round of interviews. 

25. Rackspace

Rackspace employees

Interview difficulty rating: 3.3

Tough interview question: “If your day was 20% performing job duties and 80% strategizing then give us examples of what you would be doing with that 80%?” - Rackspace Acquisitions Representative III Interview (San Antonio, TX)

Recent job candidate commentary“Hour three [of the interview] involved meeting the prospective actual team lead & manager to see how the fit might be. Questions like "Do you get enjoyment out of completing 50 tasks in a shift or do you prefer to tackle very difficult projects that take many hours?" Resume was scrutinized, and questions about if hired, where I wanted to be within the company in 5 years type questions.” – Rackspace Window Systems Administrator II Interview (Austin, TX)

24. Caterpillar

Caterpillar employees

Interview difficulty rating: 3.3

Tough interview question: "Tell me of a situation when you had to work on safety incident, what was the incident and what was your involvement in providing solution and how it turned out." —Caterpillar Supply Chain Planning Engineer ( SAP IM WM ) Interview (East Peoria, IL)

Recent job candidate commentary: "The interviewer was the hiring manager who is from technical background, so all the questions are purely technical, which were very different from the job description. You gotta be very knowledgeable to go to the next round." –Caterpillar Senior Engineer (Gearbox Analyst) Interview (location, n/a)

22. Facebook

Interview difficulty rating: 3.3

Tough interview question:“Where do you see the future of Facebook?” – Facebook Product Manager Interview (Menlo Park, CA)

Recent job candidate commentary: "The second phone interview … I told her about my future plans for Facebook she said it wasn't much different from what they have now. (It is, but she was apparently expecting more than my already unconventional ideas)." – Facebook Product Manager Interview (Menlo Park, CA)

21. Informatica


Interview difficulty rating: 3.4

Tough interview question: “Describe yourself in 3 words.” —Informatica Senior QA Interview (Bangalore, India)

Recent job candidate commentary: "Most of the interview questions are related to algorithm, problem solving and critical thinking. Interviewers are very friendly and do make one feel comfortable. They focus less on coding and more on general design skills." – Informatica Principal Software Engineer Interview (Redwood City, CA)
