"Could be a lot better, and not necessaril relyable"

What do you like best?

The recruting system helps, it's another one that you can had to your list whenever you need to spread a lot your opened position.

What do you dislike?

The rating system is not relyable, thin of it, who has ever think in is free time, lets find a website where I can say how much I love my current employer. People going on that site to rate an employer are more than often people that are mad because they just got fired. So they take a fake name and ID and the go bash on the previous employer because they were not able to keep them job. Employer that have to much good comment look as not relyable as the opposite. I've seen some company runing a mandatory rating exercise amoung them current employee to raise them rating. I know the idea is to help people that seeks a better opportunity know more about a company, but I really don't think this way provide goods data on company at all.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's not worth putting time on it as according to a lot of people the results of the rating cannot be considered as relyable.

"See Through Walls of Most Companies"

What do you like best?

Glassdoor is the best service I've found to peer into a company to learn what employees really think end-to-end from interviewing to actually working there for extended periods of time. Glassdoor has a wealth of information on salaries, culture, interview questions, available jobs, etc.

It's also super user friendly. Finding what you're looking for is a breeze thanks to great user interface design.

You can even set alerts for just about anything so you don't have to check the site unless there's something new you're interested in.

What do you dislike?

Smaller companies and startups are hard to find on Glassdoor. This isn't so much a critique of Glassdoor as a simple reality that there are less people working there and therefore less data available.

Certain companies (like Uber) also have highly skewed ratings and reviews. There's a big difference between driving for Uber and designing their software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the information with a grain of salt and look for patterns. If a company has a very small number of reviews or salaries, don't let that sway you. See for yourself.

Conversely, if you see a very large number of people saying the same things, there might be some truth to it.

Overall, Glassdoor is an absolutely killer application that empowers employees and job seekers with more information than they're likely to find anywhere else.

"Terrible technical support and follow up"

What do you like best?

I like that you can have your advertised positions run on your competitors review page, so long as they are not a client

What do you dislike?

Sadly, the worst end to end customer service I have experienced. I suspect that their technical support team is woefully understaffed and that may be part of the problem, but in each of the 2 support issues I had, it took 5+ days to even get a response and even then after at least one follow up to my customer advocate. They were able to solve both problems. The on-boarding process took more than a week from the time we were billed to start the service, which is a terrible intro to the company. In total, I had 3 people (by their design) walk me through the process, eventually settling in with a Customer Support Rep. The first 2 folks I had to reach out to multiple times to get on their calendar. Full disclosure, I was on a 3 month trial and I cancelled 12 days before the next billing cycle when their policy is 14 days, so I'm also a bit ticked off at that, but it is in the contract and that's on me, so I'll be making the best of my next 3 months, but to date we have not received any ROI from the trial, and everything I said about the customer support / customer service issues I have already discussed with Glassdoor. Overall, a product with a ton of potential, but sadly flawed execution.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Mine may be a one off issue, but proceed with caution

"Glassdoor"

What do you like best?

I love the transparency that this site gives to employers and potential employees into a day in the life, the culture, the salaries, the interview process and so much more.

What do you dislike?

As an employer, it can be difficult when there is a negative review that is posted and it cannot be removed. A company can certainly respond, and address any issues, but this shows the pros and cons of this complete transparency and instills confidence that the reviews are honest and unfiltered.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a priority investment for any employer who is trying to properly brand a company and what it has to offer to potential employees.

"great website"

What do you like best?

the ease of use of navigation on the website, you can filter your results and have direct feedback from employees.

What do you dislike?

some data are very unfiltered and a single bad review can tip the scale for a potential candidate. it is a very powerful website that can have great advantages as well as drawbacks.

Recommendations to others considering the product

please review more thoughtfully the reviews as they can be very destructive.

"Solid platform for any business"

What do you like best?

Backend review management is simple and their customer support is quick to respond to any issues.

What do you dislike?

Advertising didn't bring in the quality level of candidates we were hoping for.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Your experience will really depend on your relationship with your account rep, so make sure you are vocal about your needs to them.

"Great multi-function site for recruitment + company information"

What do you like best?

I like that candidates can make an educated decision about both the company and the job they are applying for.

What do you dislike?

It's a double edged sword, as sometimes candidates may just look at our negative reviews (which there are not a ton of) and decide not to apply because of that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not underestimate the power of Glassdoor. Looking at Glassdoor to check out a company before applying has become mainstream now. If you have negative reviews from past/current employees or applicants on Glassdoor, it's going to be an issue you cannot hide from.

"Hiring through branding"

What do you like best?

The analytics are most helpful and the job ads performed well. We got fewer applicants but considered the same of of applicants from our other source, LinkedIn

What do you dislike?

Because our hiring needs weren't too vast, I can see this tool being difficult for companies having larger hiring needs. But the new acquisition/help from Recruit should help them immensely.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you treat their customer service reps how you'd like to be treated, you'd get the best service.

"Good resource for authentic reviews into a company, but don't use it as your ONLY source"

What do you like best?

Glassdoor has done a great job bringing authentic reviews about our company to the public. It's a great resource to look at what peoples experience of the company is.

What do you dislike?

Some of the 'potential salary' information is a bit off. There's also the argument that people only go online to complain, and some companies have found it tough to maintain a good rating.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you are coming with authentic information about your company. People who go to Glassdoor want to see the real you.

What do you like best?

Glassdoor does a very good job of getting possible positions to you via email.

The emails can come a bit too often, sometimes four or five times a day. The selected positions are often confusing as well.

"A great tool for recruitment and employer branding"

What do you like best?

The varying licence levels plus the option to pay per vacancy.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the review notifications don't come through, so we accidentally leave reviews unresponded to for some time. Also, the sales team can sometimes come on a bit strong.

"Great job site that covers all aspects of a company"

What do you like best?

I love being able to integrate Glassdoor job postings with our ATS system.

What do you dislike?

No one likes seeing the one or two bad reviews that come from disgruntled former employees, but it's great that the employer is able to respond and "clear the air".
