Think no one gets what you like about your job or do you wonder if you are alone in your job gripes? Or perhaps you’re starting your job search and want some insight on what to look for when evaluating if a culture is good or if the downsides at a company are arguably normal?

To help answer these questions, we turned to the millions of company reviews on Glassdoor to find the answers. Every day employees are sharing company reviews and by doing so are offering up their experience with their job and company – the good, the bad and everything in between. We highlight below the most cited most “pros” or likes in this case and “cons” (or gripes) of jobs across industries and the globe.

JOB SEARCH TIP: Before you begin researching jobs and companies, take a moment to determine what you want (and what you don’t want) in a new job and to peruse the lists above.  Spend some time thinking about what will make you truly happy in a new role at a new company and remember that even great companies have their downsides, and not so great companies can have their upsides.  Once you have these lists clearly defined in your head, write them down and keep them near you throughout your job search process.
