As of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, companies do not have the direct ability to remove negative reviews on Glassdoor. Glassdoor’s policy is to maintain the integrity of the platform by allowing employees to freely express their opinions and share their experiences. This means that companies cannot unilaterally remove or delete reviews they deem negative or unfavorable.
However, Glassdoor does have a moderation process in place to ensure the quality and authenticity of reviews. They have community guidelines and algorithms that help filter out spam, fake reviews, or reviews that violate their policies. If a review is flagged as inappropriate or violates their guidelines, Glassdoor’s moderation team will review it and take appropriate action, such as removing it from the platform if it is found to be in violation.
While companies cannot directly remove negative reviews, they can respond to reviews publicly and address any concerns or issues raised. By providing a thoughtful and constructive response, companies can demonstrate their commitment to employee feedback, showcase their efforts to improve, and potentially mitigate the impact of negative reviews.
It’s important to note that policies and features on platforms like Glassdoor may evolve over time, so it’s always advisable to refer to Glassdoor’s current guidelines and policies for the most accurate and up-to-date information.
