Better than indeed

Great for checking out reviews- this is an advantage over indeed. Yes they have reviews too, but somehow in HR it has become a standard to check glassdoor reviews.

Pros

Again, we need to differ between glassdoor for employers, and for jobseekers. I use glassdoor when searching for a job, and found both the uploading process (cv etc.) and reviews very helpful. I read reviews as a standard procedure even when dealing with clients- I love people, and working with them, so an abundance of bad reviews is a bad sign- and I like to be prepared.

Cons

Nothing really comes to mind. I think it is great the way it is.

Reasons for Choosing Glassdoor

You hear the name more often, and this creates trust.

Best way to review companies and current job openings

Glassdoor is good and I am satisfied with it, but I do hope that issue with jobs which are sent to me via email, will be addressed in near future, as that one of the very important features of every job search.

Pros

Glassdoor provides innovative way for employees to search for future job openings, by reviewing both the company and available jobs. This is really useful when I am looking for new position, as I can check reviews from other people who worked before there and what are the pros and cons of the specific job, so I can prepare myself accordingly and show the best of me.

Cons

It is really great that we are getting email updates from the Glassdoor for specific job criteria, but unfortunately for some reason I keep getting job posts which are either away from my city ( or they are listed in my feed because I have chosen Remote Positions, but they don't have such ) and\or don't fall under my Salary expectation.

Reasons for Switching to Glassdoor

I made a switch, because Indeed didn't provide me with reviews about the Company and experience of the ex-workers of certain Company.

Glassdoor is prefect for company reviews. Terrible for job search.

My experience with Glassdoor started off well several years ago. But I stopped using or recommending it for job searches.

Pros

The company review section is the most valuable feature! I love that current and former employees can share their experiences so job seekers have a better way of knowing the true culture vs what recruiters and interviewers share, which is usually only the positives or exaggerated benefits.

Cons

The job search function is easy. However, I NEVER received one call when applying to position on Glassdoor. However, I received calls for the same position when they're listed on LinkedIn or Indeed. As a result, I only use Glassdoor for company reviews. Also, I submitted reviews for former employers. After a few weeks, my posts disappeared. So, I submitted another one. Same thing happened. I reached out to Glassdoor to report my reviews have been removed. They were good enough to be approved and posted. So why did they keep disappearing? My guess - Companies can pay to remove certain reviews. Glassdoor denied they remove reviews. But it's happened to several people I know.

Not as great as some of the others

Pros

I used this platform in my personal career search. They don't seem to have as many job listings as indeed and I still get emails from them for new job postings but it will happen like a month after I saw the same job posted on indeed. Sometimes the links in the emails take me to a completely different job board site and that can be frustrating.

Cons

Less job postings, late sending emails for new jobs, links sometimes take me to a completely different job board site.

The idea of Glassdoor is great, but I have concerns around review legitimacy

Pros

Glassdoor often gives a great insight into what to expect from working with a company - in day to day internal works, expectations and salary. If used correctly, it can help forge decisions and help employees understand if they are the right fit. It can also be used to hold employers accountable for maintaining a good working experience. The platform works well and is simple.

Cons

I think it is often used incorrectly and therefore used to manipulate. Often, employers will prompt for employees to leave a review whilst they are working for them or only a few months into their position which somewhat forces them to leave overly positive reviews through fear of backlash. Especially for smaller companies, it is easy to tell who has left a negative review from the job title they have specified. Employers will often try to hide negative reviews by getting employees to leave multiple positive reviews after a negative. You have to be signed in to do most things and mobile has a lot of popups.
