We are thrilled to announce that OpenTable has been selected as one of the Glassdoor Best Places to Work 2016. The Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards are based entirely on employee feedback and honor various companies and leaders throughout the world.
The People + Culture team at OpenTable are particularly proud of this honor because it is based on feedback from employees who have voluntarily and anonymously posted their views on Glassdoor, the fastest-growing jobs and recruiting marketplace. To determine the winners of the awards, Glassdoor evaluates all company reviews shared by employees over the past year.
The remarks we have received on Glassdoor have been overwhelmingly positive. OpenTable employees have praised the company for our collaborative environment, great work/life balance, rewarding work, a fun, inclusive culture, and, of course, our awesome happy hours! Below are just a few examples of feedback shared on Glassdoor that contributed toward this win.
“An intelligent and collaborative workforce that makes it enjoyable to come into work every day. Everyone does seem to respect one another professionally as well as personally; the people are genuinely nice.”
“Awesome, well-loved product. I love to tell people where I work. Smart co-workers. Lots of opportunity. Fun technical challenges.”
“This is, hands down, the best job I have ever had in my life. I hope to make this a permanent, lifelong career. Fun, friendly, supportive company culture. Excellent pay and benefits. Lots of autonomy. Perfect work/life balance.”
Thanks to all OpenTablers who took the time to share their perspectives on what it’s like to be a part of the team. Your feedback is invaluable, and it is vital to our collective ongoing success.
On a personal note, many of you have heard me go on and on about joy at work and the importance of loving your team. In my many years in HR I’ve never worked in a more joyful environment nor have I loved a team more than this group of wonderful people at OpenTable.
