Are Glassdoor Reviews Poisoning Your Prospects?:
4 Ways to Turn Negative Into Positive
For companies, Glassdoor is a good thing (though this can be difficult to appreciate when harsh reviews are posted). Workplace culture can’t take a backseat in today’s job market. It is front and center and often the reason people join your team or stay put. Perspective helps a lot when it comes to deciding how much attention to give to what’s been posted and what actually deserves a response.
And we have some advice for job seekers, too. When researching a company, don’t give more weight to Glassdoor reviews than they deserve. It’s similar to what you might do when reading reviews about a restaurant you’d like to try. Ultimately, you decide whether to try the restaurant or not and find out for yourself whether it’s worth the hype or is getting a bad rep for no reason.
