About Glassdoor

Glassdoor is a web-based job board software that enables businesses to build brand image and attract potential candidates with the help of employer branding tools, company profile management, and candidate management. Businesses of all sizes can use Glassdoor to recruit and hire aspiring candidates, post job openings, search resumes, and review queries.

Employers can foster transparency by helping applicants learn about the company through ratings and reviews posted by the current or ex-employees and companies’ responses to reviews and issues. Candidates can utilize the solution to search and apply for jobs according to company, job, and location preferences. The software helps users differentiate themselves from their competitors through brand-specific advertisement campaigns featuring success stories, photos, videos, and removing ads of competitors. It offers an activity dashboard that provides metrics about viewers, company followers, profile activities, and webpage traffic. Additionally, employers can update their profile according to new hiring, employer branding trends, and candidate's expectations.

With the help of tools such as HackerOne, users can spot security weaknesses in their accounts and address security issues encountered on the website. Two-factor authentication and online passwords further safeguard the user account. Employers can learn about the latest labor market trend through Glassdoor Economic Research.

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.

It gives elaborate data about the organization's structure, review, overview, salaries, past interviewer suggestions, and quick data which can be used before giving an interview to a company.
Easy to use and have many insights helps to go through the interview rounds and get it cleared.
Less expensive and user friendly on both the web-based and mobile platforms.

Pros

The most important part of Glassdoor is the Interview questions option, which helps the job seekers to know more about the company and its interview process. Keep you the updated information about the positions and opportunities available in the company.

Cons

Sometimes I see a few fake reviews and employees post reviews on frustration which brings a false impression on the company.
They don't have a resume search option in them, so that recruited can make use of it.
You can't make a connection with individuals to know more about the interview process.
It doesn't have an in-build application tracking system in it like some of its competitors.

Truly a wonderful experience and would highly recommend to others!

Pros

I really liked the breadth and depth of the postings on Glassdoor. In addition, there are salary insights as well as reviews from people who work at that company. It really provides a terrific way to get a glimpse of company culture and the interview process.

Cons

I did not like how you have to pay or sign in to get the best insights from Glassdoor. The website locks you out if you do not have a subscription so you do not get access to everything if you are not signed in. That being said, it is worth it!

Glassdoor needs some good doors to be opened.

It was good in the beginning but after facing some problems, i have switched to Linkedin.

Pros

Glassdoor is very old and has a large dataset of all companies mostly and no doubt Comparison feature between two organizations is very useful in decision making.
Also descriptive and good UI reviews can be read easily with very less time consumption.

Cons

The most annoying thing while using glassdoor is that it forces you to add Review/salary before viewing any review of any company, i understand that the main aim is to increase user engagement but it shouldn't be blocking user flow.

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.
