Ratings on Glassdoor

Updated 30 August, 2019

Company ratings on Glassdoor are determined by recent employee feedback. Glassdoor calculates company ratings using a proprietary ratings algorithm, with an emphasis on recency of reviews. With this improvement, we’re giving job seekers and employers what they’ve asked of us – the freshest perspective on what it’s really like to work inside any company, according to employees.

Glassdoor ratings are located on the Overview page of a company profile.

Company Ratings

Company ratings are based on a 5-point scale:

  • 0.00 - 1.50 Employees are "Very Dissatisfied"
  • 1.51 - 2.50 Employees are "Dissatisfied"
  • 2.51 - 3.50 Employees say it's "OK"
  • ​3.51 - 4.00 Employees are "Satisfied"
  • ​4.01 - 5.00 Employees are "Very Satisfied"


CEO Ratings

CEO approval ratings are based on the percentage of employees who approve of their CEO. Employees have the option to rate their CEO during the company review process. 

To ensure the highest quality of data integrity and to prevent manipulation, Glassdoor does not discuss the details of our proprietary algorithm.

Note: The update of ratings lags the creation of content. You can expect your ratings to be updated within 7 business days.
