As a result, you have some companies encouraging or downright pressuring employees to leave positive reviews. And, of course, you have people who are bitter leaving fake negative reviews as well. So, how can you spot which reviews are real and which are fake?

Do you think employers asking employees to write reviews on Glassdoor is acceptable in any circumstance? In my experience, most happy employees don’t think to write a review for their company – they aren’t looking for other work, they haven’t left the company, and nothing is prompting them to write a review.

In general, people who are unhappy about something are many times more likely to complain that those who are content.
