I got inspired to write this after I saw a horrible Glassdoor reviews of company that I wanted to give TECH/UI /UXD ideas to.
Let’s set one thing straight – there are always going to be rotten eggs – people that will bash and give out negative reviews and feedback no matter what you do – some people call them haters, some rotten eggs and they probably need a hug.
But…when you see reviews like this about about YOUR company….
….you should really really hard think about where your company is going.
So I give you…
*18 things you need to do to make your employees hate you!
*screenshots of reviews of a SINGLE company
1. Treat employee concerns and suggestions as personal insults
2. Hire your buddies as senior management
Who better to trust then your best buddy from college. He organized all the frat parties - handling one department is a piece a cake for that guy!
3. Spend more time touring Europe with your motorcycle then running the company
4. Even perks have to have secret agendas
5. Make your “month old” employees leave
6. Make your performance reviews really really late – when they happen give out a minuscule increase to the ones that deserve it.
7. Have a huge ego – be the smartest person in the room – at all times!
(This is a positive review – only one!)
8. Make your employees lie to your customers
9. Take authorship credit.
10. Micromanage everything!
11. “People are stellar – management sucks”
12. Be vindictive to former employees
13. Don’t listen – push your idea even thought it’s horrible and everyone tells you it is.
14. Delete reviews and which-hunt people that post bad a review of your company on Glassdoor
15. Make people sign a 2 year non-compete
16. Do NOT listen to ideas from those inferior beings called “employees”
17. Try to solve your problems with food – that always works.
18. Get hacked A LOT (probably by pissed off former employees which you lost track off because the turnover is 25% a year)
No matter what you call them you have to take into account that in a general population there is a certain percentage of people with these “hating” characteristics.
But even the most positive review on Glassdoor pointed out that there is a ego problem.
I wanted to share with you publicly what company this is – but my wife Maja talked me out it.
Instead I’m gonna send these guys an e-mail on how to make their current employees hate them less and gonna write a post probably.
