GlassDoor is a good site for company reviews, however, not a good job board. It should only be used as a data point for how much different companies pay and not as a way to get jobs. By offering jobs, GlassDoor starts controlling salary expectations. And that can lead to GlassDoor offering ways to hire cheap labor.
The site give details of the company, start, benefits, interviews and reviews of the company culture. I like to go to Glassdoor when I look for jobs or want to know about a company. Easy search tool as well and brings you the right jobs that you are looking for.

After careful analysis of the Glassdoor and competitor programs my company decided to establish a paid relationship with Glassdoor in 2017. Since then they were acquired by Recruit Holdings Co, Ltd who also acquired Indeed. Prior to being acquired the company was very customer focused and a great partner. They trained our people and were always available to troubleshoot problems. Last week I discovered that some of the program was being unbundled and that the job posting side was shifting under indeed. Unfortunately we didn’t know about this until after the fact. We didn’t know anything until we discovered key features were shut off and that our branded pages were shut down.
I spent about five hours trying to reach someone for explanation. I was referred to Indeed who knew nothing about my account, then corporate Glassdoor, and then to our sales rep who is no longer our sales rep as of this week. Funny, I just learned of the prior rep change the week before. I would not recommend Glassdoor or Indeed to my peers. They are disorganized and only focused on monitoring their programs. They were a nimble company that made their customers feel like they were trying to improve the hiring/recruiting experience. Now they are only worried about creating value for themselves without any customer input. The fact that they pulled back features that made their program good in order to shift the revenue to Indeed and only gave customers a short time to discover and react is proof that they have lost their way.
I posted an review re my previous employer who did not compensate employees by law for 13 years and requested us to sign legal document to give up our legal rights. Glassdoor secretly removed my review after it posted for 2 wks with no reason. I posted the review because I want to warn people before they took in the job, and now I could not. More victims will come because of what Glassdoor did. Don’t trust them, people deserved the right to know the truth. Glassdoor just simply don’t care. Do not take their review as reference, they are marketing for the company not for employees.
Put simply, Glassdoor is site that allows disgruntled employees to vent their spleen about past or current employers with the protection of anonymity. Without context, these reviews are most gossip, and generally slanderous. Anyone wanting genuine feedback on what it is like to really work in an organization is better off seeking a direct connection via LinkedIn. Don't waste your time with Glassdoor, or worse miss out on a real career opportunity because of some Muppet that wasn't a good fit for the place.
I just used Glassdoor services for free trial and after that without any notification, without any email or any consent they deducted money from my account and that too 571sgd which is like insane for a month, I never registered for any paid payment plan and neither used any service. After reporting several times, email comes that "management has not approved your request." I have been calling them, sending email but nothing has happened so far., There should be some fair charges if they want to deduct which also doesn't make sense but deducting such a huge amount is like...Hope i can get some help and figure out how to resolve this issue and where can I take this forward.
Please don't use free trial. It's a trap just to take money even if you don't use service and charges are like huge!! If anyone can help me in this would really appreciate. They are replying like glad next month is not cut. That is because when I got to know I had to block my card so that they don't deduct again else one more transaction. Plus saying CVs are relevant, that doesn't matter as I didn't use any. Thank you!
I lost my job after sharing my company review with Glassdoor. I was terminated after 2 weeks of reviewing my employer NES GLOBAL TALENT. How come this can happen to any employee. I used to have meeting with my manager and lead which they indirectly named it as performance issue and removed me. I belonged to pilot batch, there was no chance of removing me from team. I was top performer. I was whistleblower. I can't trust my team lead or anyone at office hence reviewed with glassdoor but now lost job during covid 19.
Job ads are targeted to my skills. It gives a synopsis and can drive down to detail. This way I can selectively choose what I want to look at. It also proved the salary or salary range. This is a plus. In terms of other features, one can look up the reviews left by current and past employees of the target company allowing one to get a better feel for it.
I have applied for eight jobs through Glassdoor. The company sends me Job listings quite often. I have had two interviews with a couple of banks due to the fact of Glassdoor referring me. I haven’t been hired yet but staying optimistic I will find the correct job for me through this company.
Here at glassdoor you can apply with ease. You get to know more information of the company that you are applying for from reviews to expected salary. These information helped me a lot in my decision making.
