Overall Satisfaction with Glassdoor.com

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.
  • 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.

Yes

Did Glassdoor.com live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Glassdoor.com go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Glassdoor.com again?

Yes

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.
