Maybe I’m inspired to give in to rage by a recent viewing of Avengers Assemble (“Mewling Quim“? Really Mr. Whedon, you spoil us) but I am now onto my fourth attempt at ridding myself of the plague that is Glassdoor.com.
Several months ago, a few of my facebook contacts sent me invitations to join this seemingly innocuous corporate social networking site. Sort of a start-up LinkedIn where the idea is to find out “Insider Info” on potential employers or business partners.
I followed the links and instantly took a dislike to the site.
Glassdoor.com was obviously only interested in my tipping my hat to the inside secrets of my employer.
Now anybody who knows me will know who retentitively obsessive I am about loyalty to my career – the concepts of “insider secrets” or “corporate espionage” are an anathema to me.
So I removed myself from the site and had nothing more to do with it.
Which is more than I can say for Glassdoor.com.
The first few times I received them I just deleted them, like I do normal junk mail.
After a while I became annoyed enough to click the link in the email that says unsubscribe (go on, click it, it changes nothing).
Still I receive the mail and I have now attempted unsubscription four times… four times!
Each time I receive the same polite message:
You’re all set – you won’t receive any more emails from us.
But each time this is proven to be a lie by the subsequent nonsense email sent from them.
Gah! Glassdoor? Assdoor more like. They may as well re-brand as LockedIn.
