We use Glassdoor to post all of our jobs, share news and employee stories on our profile, and maintain our reputation. We also use Glassdoor to benchmark against our competitors to see where we are versus where they are. We ensure to keep our profile up to date always adding new content. We also run employer branding ADS here to build brand awareness against key talent and key markets.
  • Employer branding ADS.
  • Reporting
  • Through reviews.
  • More sections within the employer profile section to add content too.
Glassdoor is important in the candidate journey as most candidates review what others are saying about the company before they apply for a job there.

Glassdoor is used by the HR department in order to understand the employee sentiment and get honest feedback about the organization culture, leadership and benefits. It helps us understand our company's brand perception and also what needs to be done in order to improve it to next level. We also use Glassdoor as an alternative platform for posting new job opportunities.
  • It's like a mirror to organizations to how its culture, leadership, practices, and processes are perceived by previous and existing employees.
  • It provides key insights about our company, culture, the average salary for each role, and the interview process to the prospective candidates which helps them understand what to expect.
  • Sponsored campaigns can be run to hire candidates especially when hiring is to be done in less time as people browsing on the Glassdoor platform are the ones actively looking for a change.
  • Glassdoor is an expensive product and price needs to be lower for employers.
  • They have to find a way to stop companies from rigging their ratings by asking their employees to post positive reviews.
  • Also, somehow they need to figure out if the negative review is an attempt to show their frustration by an employee rather than the true picture of the organization.
Glassdoor is well suited if an organization is looking to quickly reach out to the candidates actively looking for a job as most of the visitors on the site are active job seekers. So it can help reduce the total hiring time which can translate into a lot of monetary savings. It's not well suited for smaller companies as the pricing is too high and without a lot of reviews, ratings are not justified.
  • Ability to target candidates based on their location.
  • Reports and insights from all the reviews and how is the sentiment changing from one period to other. It helps us correlate if our efforts are fruitful or not.
  • Reviews can be anonymous which makes sure that the existing employees can also give the feedback about CEO and policies without risking their jobs.
  • Average time to hire a candidate is shorter on Glassdoor when compared to our primary platform.
  • Overall employee sentiment has gone up since we started using Glassdoor and came to know what are the pain points of our employees. It was an eye-opener and since then we made many changes which led to employee satisfaction.
  • Organization image has improved as we always try to take the feedback constructively and actively try to acknowledge and respond to the reviews.

Glassdoor is a very good tool to find talent for organization and to look for opportunities as an independent professional. It has some interesting tools and their algorithm is very advanced as their personalized e mails with job opportunities you may be missing always hits the point in terms of my interests and the professional skills I want to develop.
As for the company, we have a lot of applicants when we publish jobs on Glassdoor and HR is the area that uses it the most inside the organization.
  • Lots of job posting and opportunities.
  • You get approximated salaries for each available position.
  • Highlights which skills are needed for each position.
  • Annoying e mail notifications, 3 or 4 per day.
  • Bad location targeting. Sometimes I get job offers from other countries.
  • Mobile app not very user friendly.
Glassdoor is useful as a job portal, specifically for more junior entry positions and as you move forward on your career other services may be more useful. Some of the postings you will see on Glassdoor are specific to the site but most are duplicated from LinkedIn and other job portal.
  • Lots of applicants.
  • Good filters to choose the best talent.
  • Easy to use templates.
  • Provides talent for the organization.
  • The service is quite cheap.
LinkedIn is the most direct competitor and to be honest Glassdoor's offering does not match up. LinkedIn's product is superior as it is more developed, more precise, you can get more insights as an applicant and as a business. I would use both services but Glassdoor would not be my first choice.

We use [Glassdoor.com] to search for job candidates and also to post open positions we have available. It makes the process more streamlined because we can inform people about our organization, collect reviews that help people understand what we're about, and post jobs that reach a wide variety of candidates. We appreciate people being able to learn about our company before they decide to apply for a job with us.
  • Glassdoor is great at providing candidates with information about our company they wouldn't find elsewhere.
  • Glassdoor's website is organized well and has an easy-to-use interface both for job seekers and posters.
  • Glassdoor has excellent crowdsourcing functionality when it comes to company ratings and salary information.
  • The "jobs you may like" section algorithm could use some work - it often shows jobs that are not relevant to the user.
  • It is not very easy to search company reviews based on certain criteria, like EDI.
  • The mobile app is sometimes buggy and slow on Android phones.
[Glassdoor.com] is well suited for larger, older organizations who have had time to build up a reputation in the market and have lots of employees come and go. This means that job seekers will have a lot more data to peruse when it comes to company reviews, interviews, salaries, etc. simply because there is a larger pool of people to provide such information. If you are a small or new organization, [Glassdoor.com] might not be helpful for candidates trying to learn more about your company.
  • Having reviews, salaries, and other company info visible to job seekers
  • Streamlining the job posting process and getting large numbers of applicants
  • Allowing the organization to learn and grow based on the feedback and data collected on the website
  • Positively affects how informed our job candidates are when they apply for a job
  • Positively affects the number of applicants we receive for any given job posting
  • Takes more time than some other job boards to maintain and analyze the data
To be honest, we use both LinkedIn Jobs and [Glassdoor.com] to make sure we get the largest number of quality candidates quickly. LinkedIn Jobs allows us to learn more about the applicants before we ever speak to them, but Glassdoor allows candidates to learn more about us before they ever apply. Both boards have their complementary benefits and downsides, so it's a good idea to combine them if your organization can afford it.

We use Glassdoor.com to own the reputation of our clients and to sponsor jobs through PPC when necessary. We also have a review response strategy and try to respond to each review. Glassdoor also shows us to advertise on some competitor sites and to programmatically serve display ads to our audience.
  • Owning your company profile and reputation.
  • Programmatic display advertising.
  • Company updates seem to provide little value.
  • Tracking is constantly an issue.
You need to have a healthy budget for employer brand and marketing as profile ownership cost has gone up significantly in the past few years. Would not recommend for smaller businesses as it most likely wouldn’t be cost-effective. PPC is useful, but the campaign setup isn’t as smart as competitors’ offerings. If you need constant optimization, it may be best to use another technology to manage campaigns.
  • PPC is consistently top performer in CPA.
  • Quality of candidates is higher than competitors.
Indeed is still nascent in the space but often claims to have more reviews for a company. This is true, but we’ve seen these reviews mainly coming from more entry-level or hourly workforce. Glassdoor seems to be more prevalent with all job seekers. Comparably is an up and coming competitor in the space that has a good business model and value prop, just not the SEO value and traffic.
Support is generally excellent, but there can be a fair amount of bureaucracy at times for requests. The support people are very knowledgeable of the platform, but sales seem to regurgitate the same info when trying to negotiate or upsell a client. Technical issues are rare and usually solved quickly.
