I assume BLIND is running these 'anonymous' surveys(the survey that come top of the feed) to publish a report, but what is with these HR types useless questions?
Why not ask the real questions that can be asked and answered on this platform only?
Such as:
1. Diversity in Tech debate: alleged token hires, quotas , lowering of hiring bars, all the privileges, double standards etc. Is there any truth behind it? What does the community feel about it?
2. Indians and the Visa abuse debate. Also, the alleged work ethics and priorities.
3. The alleged overpowering of SJWs in day to day functioning of companies

And many more real question. Blind why don't you ball up? Let the opinions come out in public. Otherwise what is the difference between you and LinkedIn where everyone is pretending to spread positive thoughts.

People might argue that the demographics on blind is highly skewed towards one group(s), but that is good enough representation of current scene. Good or bad I don't judge.

Blind could have been the voice of employees but it had chosen to be a puppet of Corporations, serving what they want the hear. Sad.

      It's about the BLIND sponsored polls, the one that come on top of feed. BLIND is about the publish a survey report based on the responses. I am talking about those polls dimwit. Re read my post before acting like a smartass

    Blind is most likely trying to build an advertising/subscription/feedback product for HR departments. To get objective employee sentiment without fear of repercussions and a way to preserve anonymity. They can’t ask real questions because this is NOT an activist website. This is a corporate platform, where us employees are the product, and our HR departments are the buyers. Now put your observation through this lens and see if blind would do anything differently

      So it is yet another run of the mill survey website which gives HR departments a purpose: celebrate birthdays on time, send Happy new year emails , keep that coffee machine running because that is what that ducking matters the most!!

    They are attempting to sell survey results. As interesting as the results of the questions you’ve posed might be to regular people on the Blind platform, I doubt corporations care about those answers much.

      Lol millions of dollars of investment and opportunity costs, several Execs shown the door and you are telling me these are not the pressing questions that corporations must care? Oh wait they should care about WLB and shit as If they would getting insights from a survey platform?

      See the post right below mine that elaborated on this topic better than I did.

      Corporations care about making profits. As long as their employees are still contributing to that in a positive way that is as good or better than it was vs. last month or last year, the rest is just noise to them.

      Ah, Blind could have been a platform that was a voice of people(employees) and not corporations/governments. Yet another corporation's puppet.

      They aren’t going to be able to pay their employees and stay in business if they don’t seek a realistic source of revenue, whether it’s corporations (easier) or a subscription model (harder). I feel like there aren’t enough people on here to make ads a fully viable standalone revenue model.

      Why not serve both kind of surveys, the other being independent?

      It could be that they don’t see business value in providing the other type of survey, either because it robs space and time from surveys they think they can make money from, they fear that asking those questions may de-legitimatize their ability to sell the more business-friendly surveys, some combination of those two, or maybe you’re onto something and they just haven’t ever thought of it.

      Further it's about the vision. Blind can choose to be a Corporations mouthpiece and play in $100K ARR arena or it can choose to be people (employee) voice and play in arena of millions or at least valuation such as the reddits, Quora or 9gags of the world. If it balls up to be latter, and once , even once corporations acknowledge the real issues, thousands will join blind in mass footfalls. If it chooses former, it will just be reduced to a ranting forum, the ones already existing in hundreds. It's all about how big they can think to become.

    Buddy I have seen your posts, your company name is displayed as New. So first stop being a wuss yourself & stop posting as Undisclosed when your company name doesn't even show up.

      Are you in marketing? because you gave a highly useless and irrelevant opinion that no one asked for. Get out of your daily habits.

      Btw, I was just trying out this feature, and once you do it hints you to use evertime. Kinda trap
