Glassdoor Updates – Not Just for the Americans

Over the past week we’ve seen incredible interest from users outside of the United States, with more than 40% of this week’s site traffic coming from our international users.  This response and all the feedback we have received from across the world has been overwhelmingly positive, so we wanted to say thanks – merci – danke – and much more to everyone for helping us make Glassdoor more relevant to all users, regardless of where you work.

It has become clear to us that workers everywhere are curious about what it’s really like on the inside and what it means to be fairly paid. And although discussion of salaries in many countries is considered a taboo subject, it seems like Glassdoor’s anonymous set-up might be just the thing to open up the exchange of information about jobs and the workplace.

As of today the top 10 countries represented in the Glassdoor community are:

  1. United States
  2. Canada
  3. United Kingdom
  4. India
  5. Australia
  6. France
  7. Germany
  8. Ireland
  9. China
  10. Japan

From that list it sure looks like Glassdoor’s concept is universal and that this “give-to-get” model is not limited to just one culture and one country.  So now that we’ve stepped up the site’s capabilities to meet the needs of our international user base, we’re looking forward to watching how this list will change over time.  Stay tuned.
