After leaving the company feeling dissatisfied many people need to vent.
A lot of them decide to anonymously share their opinions about their former employer on websites such as Glassdoor or Seek.
These are some of the unflattering reviews posted on such sites.
Former Software Developer at Google posted his/her review anonymously on Seek with the title: “Bizarre cult like organisation; if you are in to that kind of thing you’ll have a great time, otherwise run, run away.”
Another reviewer titled his take on Facebook with “Meh, it pays the bills” and then added „Facebook is the worst thing to happen to humanity since smallpox“. His advice to management was: „Stop being money-grabbing scumbags living off of human propensity for self-immolation“.
These are just the worst of the reviews, most of them are actually praising the companies, so everything suggests that these are the views of a handful disgruntled workers.
Disgruntled workers can be found in any company.
Someone of that profile reviewed Facebook on Glassdoor as “Seemingly exciting but mid management is composed of a bunch of kids”.
When it comes to bad reviews, someone who claim to be former employee of Hewlett Packard wrote: ‘Egotistical Company that believes its own hype to the detriment of its customers’ adding „After working there for over 10 years, I can’t really say there is anything outstanding about them“.
Another reviewer described Hewlett Packard with ‘ITIL gone wrong.’
“A lesson in where not to work” piled up another supposedly former Project Coordinator for Hewlett Packard in Australia.
Under pros of working at Hewlett Packard, it simply stated; „Cant really think of any.“
At least Hewlett Packard its not ‘Disheartening and confidence destroying“ which is a title of a review someone left for about Nestle on Australian reviewing site Seek.
When it comes to retail brand H&M, most spiteful review in Australia has some spelling errors.
It is titled ‘Never again would I work for such a disoragnised dismal company’.
Someone who presents himself as a former Senior Consultant for Siemens in Australia described his work experience as the “darkest days of my life”.
On Glassdoor, supposedly a former employe of Siemens wrote something similar.
“Some day we’re like a jail sentence”.
Someone who claims to worked as „Technical Helpdesk Support“ at Apple in Australia wrote; „Met the love of my life during my time working there, nothing positive to comment on regarding the workplace“.
Interior Designer for IKEA wrote this company is ‘Great if you have no design aspirations’.
Mercedes Benz apparently had its share of disgruntled employees.
Someone described Mercedes with the sentence “Zero Hope for this Company that Refuses to Change” ranting „the worker base is completely demotivated and, mostly, miserable in their jobs, which creates a really negative and unhealthy working atmosphere…“
