Top 17 Company Reviews & Ratings Sites [2021 Update]

Company review sites are a top resource for job seekers. You can think of them as a “Yelp for employers/companies”.

It’s important to know where job seekers doing their research so you can manage your employer brand and reputation.

So I created a list of 17 top company review sites to reference. Some sites feature employee-based content like reviews and ratings. Others produce their own employer reviews by analyzing companies on their own.

METHODOLOGY

We ran the top company reviews sites through an SEO (search engine optimization) tool called ahrefs to give us an “ahrefs Rank”. ahrefs defines this as “the strength of a website’s backlink profile compared to the others in ahrefs database, with rank #1 being the strongest.” Here’s an example of the Indeed’s ahrefs rank.

Ahrefs isn’t perfect but it provides a third-party “apples-to-apples” measurement to compare these company review sites.

Here are the top 17 company reviews sites that give a detailed, accurate look at employers:

Indeed’s employer reviews are segmented into a list of the best places to work and has around 500 companies that are reviewed and rated by current and past employees. Indeed is more like Glassdoor (both are owned by Recruit Holdings Ltd.) in the way employee reviews are conducted and also provide individual ratings as well as cumulative ratings.
