Content Guidelines

In media production and publishing, content is information and experiences providing value to an end-user or audience. Content is “something that is to be expressed through some medium, as speech, writing or any of various arts.” Content can be delivered via various media, including the Internet, television, audio CDs, books, magazines, and live events, such as conferences and stage performances.

General principles that commonly apply to user-generated content on online platforms:

  1. Reviews and Ratings: Glassdoor is primarily known for its employee reviews and ratings of companies. It’s important to provide honest and accurate feedback based on personal experiences when posting reviews. Studies should focus on work-related aspects such as company culture, management, compensation, work-life balance, and career opportunities. Avoid including any confidential or proprietary information.

  2. Avoid Personal Attacks: Content guidelines typically discourage personal attacks, harassment, or derogatory comments toward individuals or companies. Instead, maintain a respectful tone and focus on providing constructive criticism or feedback.

  3. Prohibited Content: Platforms like Glassdoor generally prohibit content that is illegal, defamatory, fraudulent, or harmful. This includes content that promotes violence, discrimination, hate speech, or illicit activities. In addition, spam or irrelevant content may also be disallowed.

  4. Intellectual Property: Respect intellectual property rights by not posting copyrighted or trademarked content without authorization. Avoid plagiarizing or using others’ content without permission.

  5. Privacy and Confidentiality: Do not share personal or confidential information about individuals or organizations without their consent. This includes sensitive details such as contact information, financial data, or any information protected by non-disclosure agreements.

  6. Transparency and Authenticity: Be transparent and authentic in your contributions. Avoid creating fake accounts or posting misleading information. Instead, provide genuine insights and opinions based on your own experiences.

  7. Compliance with Laws and Regulations: Follow local laws and regulations when posting content on Glassdoor. Avoid any content that violates legal requirements or encourages illegal activities.

Remember, these guidelines are general and may not reflect the specific policies of Glassdoor. For accurate and up-to-date information on content guidelines, it’s always best to consult Glassdoor’s official website and review their particular community guidelines or terms of service.
