About Glassdoor 

Glassdoor is an online job site where people go to get a feel for what it’s like to work at a company. “Glassdoor offers candidates a chance to look for jobs and read authentic and transparent reviews from employees currently and formerly employed in an organization.” 

Glassdoor provides insight into leadership, culture, competitive benchmarking, the interview and onboarding process, and more. 

Why is Glassdoor Important?

Like your coworkers? You might consider leaving a Glassdoor review. Forbes reports Glassdoor says there is a 30% greater retention rate among hires that use their site, which makes sense because when it comes to fit, the more information you have, the better decision you can make. 

Perficient is always seeking the best and brightest to join our team, making Glassdoor an important channel for us. By taking the time to leave a rating and review, you are helping directly influence our potential employees, bringing better skilled, more dedicated and passionate talent to our teams.

Great reviews help make people want to work here, making Glassdoor the perfect place to share what makes Perficient so unique and special. If you’re ready to leave an employer review, here are a few things to consider in order to create an accurate, fair, and useful review for others.

  • Each individual should submit only one review, per employer, per year, per review type (e.g. company review, interview review, salary review, benefit review, etc.).

  • Above all else, honesty is key
