I know Blind is popular at Facebook, Microsoft, Uber and the other big tech companies, but what about the smaller techs and non tech comps?

    It’s popular among attendants. Many of us are going to start posting the images here of passengers who sexually harass us. 🔥

      Can we get pictures of the hot attendants instead? Don't care for the harassers.

      Anonymous GlassDoor review:

      “Colleagues tend to bring home grievances to work. It’s OK to forget to put down the toilet seat, sometimes.

      Preferred my previous gig much better, had my own separate office, not cubicles.”

      If leadership is telling you not to use an app, that indicates to me that there's a problem.

      Especially an anonymous app with no (realistic) way to trace it back to an employee

    Yes! We were actually told to stop posting on Blind by one manager a few months ago. He said he was going to find out who is posting lol

      Did he say how he planned on doing this? Maybe keystroke logging. Seems a bit overkill though.

    We have 19 people signed up which isn’t enough for our own channel. I so badly want to know who else is on here from work.

      It is 30 people so only 11 more to go I guess.

    I've been here for a while and have seen community mature quite a bit. I'm in marketing and our group recently talked about how it's uncovering a lot of unspoken issues within the company and it's really making a difference.
