Companies rated by employees
Glassdoor is one of the largest job and recruiting sites worldwide and offers honest feedback and company reviews by current and former employees. As their name implies, it’s built on workplace transparency and offers job seekers an inside look at what it’s really like to work for a company. Employees write anonymous reviews, citing the pros, and cons of working for a particular company and offering advice to the management. They can recommend if others should work there or not, rate the outlook (negative or positive) and indicate whether they approve of the CEO. Job seekers can also research salary information, benefits, and interview techniques.
Workers need to feel valued
The companies most likely to hold onto employees and attract top candidates are those who value their workers, offer growth potential, and where the senior management is trusted. Without these benefits, a company is likely to have a high turnover rate and general dissatisfaction among its workforce. And of course, they’re not going to attract as many job seekers, especially with negative reviews on sites such as Glassdoor. Practically any job seeker serious about landing the best position is sure to check out this site before responding to job openings.
