I came across this article on BNET on how to find out what people say about companies. In my article: Tell Tale Signs of a Bad Company, I spoke about some of the signs you can see when dealing with bad companies. Now there are some websites that actually capture what employees have to say about their companies.
I do need to say that when someone has been let go or sacked for misconduct they are likely to say bad things and even write things that might not be 100% accurate so have a read but make sure you take it with a pinch of salt. From the other side if there are hundreds of bad reviews there there is likely to be some truth in there which can help you to make a decision.
Find Out What Employees are Saying About Your Company: “Whether you own the company, you’re a line manager with a handful of employees, or even just considering accepting a job offer, it’s good to know what people think of the place.”
