The latest conversations about Tech

I've been wondering about the real purpose of platforms like Glassdoor and Blind. It often feels like they're just outlets for us to vent our frustrations, especially in startups where feedback doesn't always lead to improvement and learning. And then there's the push for employees to leave overly positive, sometimes even fake, feedback on Glassdoor. What's the deal with that? Are these platforms actually making a difference, or are they just for show?

I have 3 years of postdoc experience in bioengineering, 6 years of PhD work in a mechanical engineering lab, and 3 years in a chemical engineering lab. My GPA is 4/4 for PhD, 3.9/4 for masters, and 3.6/4 for bachelor, published 17 papers (11 first-author), 3 times invited speaker, and recipient of multiple research, fellowship, and mentorship awards.

Why does HR seem more focused on shielding executives rather than tackling bias and handling complaints? It's concerning to see capable employees dismissed on an executive's whim, often due to personal biases. Also, the practice of hiring mainly from one company creates an exclusive circle, potentially affecting overall performance. HR needs to scrutinize and address these issues more effectively.

Great work-life balance culture, lots of autonomy, opportunities to experiment and learn. Full of talented and friendly people.
For a company that creates products with a progressive working culture, it feels lacking not to offer some kind of employee share scheme.
Diversity and Inclusion at Bright
- Anonymous Employee in Brighton, EnglandNo OfferNeutral ExperienceDifficult InterviewApplication
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bright (Brighton, England)
InterviewA recruiter contacted me about the role then I had a 1-1 interview with their head of people via video call. Some of the questions were fairly standard, some of them were going into detail on technical things in my current role (it’s not a very technical role as I am client facing and was interviewing for a client relationship role too so I thought it was odd).
I could tell from the interview questions they were not going to hire me and I was correct. Feedback a week later was they decided they didn’t want a client relationship role and instead want someone more technical and data driven. (I have lots of experience with data and analysing but they never actually asked me this). Shame they hadn’t decided the role they were looking for earlier, as I had taken time off work and put hours of prep work in.
That being said she was friendly in the interview and understood it was as much about me liking the company as well as them liking the candidate. Was also clearly listening to me and reacting to my answers, rather than just reading a script.Interview
