Cubecheck.com, a website launched in February 2010, lets users anonymously review their employer. However, according to creator Scott Griffis, the site wasn’t designed so you could have an anonymous go at your less-than-stellar employer. Instead, CubeCheck is intended to help prospective employees get an idea of what they can expect should they accept a new job offer.
“We are trying to achieve a better workplace and a better life for everyone in the workforce,” Griffis explains. “Happy employees make better companies. That is good for everyone involved. I want to give people a tool to look inside companies and report what is really going on inside.”
As such, CubeCheck attempts to spotlight global companies with great work conditions in addition to warning users about the companies who don’t. In order to do this, the site relies on user reviews. Interested participants log on and fill out a survey about their current or former employer. Questions are asked to elicit information about:
- What employees think of the management team.
- The average salary for a position
- Work / life balance
- How many people are leaving the company and why.
- What's it like to work at a particular department or location at that company
Both the user and the company need to be registered if a review is to be completed. It’s fairly simple to create a personal account. Those who are providing an initial review for their company will have to register the employer as well.
