Venting? Anonymously?

Just saw the jobvent.com site where disgruntled employees can register their complaints and their kudos — anonymously — for all the world to see. Oh boy.

Employers are ranked on criteria such as Pay, Respect, Benefits, Work/Life Balance, Career Potential/Growth, etc. A lot of what I read seemed petty and narrowly focused (“…the worst supervisor EVER”, “you have to suck up to the right people”) but there were legitimate learnings (as the big boys say) for those employers who are taking the long view and truly see their employees as their biggest asset.

From scores of -8222 to positive scores in the hundreds, it’s clear that people would rather pan than praise. At least on this site. I was cheered by the review of one of our local financial services employer which said: “Good company for benefits but they have this Kansas City attitude where they only go by the book.” With all of today’s financial news, may we hear a round of applause?
