The company I work for is small, and since posting a review on Glassdoor is required as a "bench task", it will be obvious who posted the review. I'd like to be honest, for 2 reasons: 1 - to help potential employees know what they are getting into, and 2 - to help the company itself better understand some of the issues they need to address. However, since I have been asked for "feedback on how to make better" by HR in the past, and I have given the feedback that would be in the review, and the important criticism (with suggestions on how to "fix" the issues) has been ignored (they have taken several of my suggestions), I am wondering what others think of this issue. Opinions are welcome.
I'd like to be clear that I am not seeking legal advice. This "required task" is simply that - a tick box on a very recently created form. There is no written company policy regarding bench tasks. I have asked to meet with the HR resource, either in person or by phone, but with both of our schedules, it may not happen until I am on the bench.
I do have queries out to ex-coworkers and friends regarding this issue. Some responses have been "they used to do this at my company" and "we all refused to do this, so they stopped asking", so it seems like this may be a new trend.
