Update my Employer Profile

Updated 7 July, 2020

To update an Employer Profile on Glassdoor, you will need to have a Free Employer account. With this account you will have the ability to update your Employer Profile, respond to reviews, and view your company metrics.

Note: In general we approve individuals in HR, marketing, operations and executive positions for an account. Branch offices and franchise locations must have corporate approval for an account. In some cases we may request more information from others in your organization for approval.



Update your company info

  1. Once you have been approved for your Free Employer Account, sign in to Glassdoor.
  2. Go to Employer Center.
  3. Click Employer Profile.
    1. Note: The tabs, sections, and fields included with your Employer Profile will differ depending on if you have upgraded to an Enhanced Profile or if you are using our free suite of tools. 
  4. Under the Company Info tab, select Details and complete the following sections:
    1. Basic Info
    2. Company Leader
      1. See our Update CEO Information article for additional information. 
      2. Note: All CEO changes must be verified by our Community Care Team prior to being published on the site which may take up to four business days.  Due to website caching there may a few additional days lag to see the update.  However, employees are still able to rate your new CEO when leaving a review.  
    3. Affiliated Companies
    4. Company Locations
    5. Verified Details: These fields will need reviewed and verified by our Community Care Team prior to being published on the site. This process can take up to four business days. You will receive a notification email when the change request has been reviewed.
      1. Competitors
        1. Begin typing in each Competitor field. A suggested list of companies will surface. You must choose a company from the suggestion list.
        2. Note: You may only add up to 3 competitors. A company must have a profile on Glassdoor in order to be suggested as a competitor on your profile. We do not remove competitor information.
      2. Stock Symbol
        1. Note: Currently we only add stock ticker information on the parent company's profile.
  5. Under the Company Info tab, select Logo & Photos to upload these items.
    1. Note: A Cover Image is only available on an Enhanced Employer Profile.
  6. Click the Company Story tab to complete Company Description and Company Mission.

Note: If you need to make other changes to your Employer Profile, such as a name change, rebrand, or merging or retiring profiles on the site, Contact Us. Larger profile change requests such as these must be verified by our team for accuracy and to ensure they meet our internal guidelines for profile changes. These changes can take up to one week to fully complete.
