Lauren Weber reported in the Careers Trends sidebar
(WSJ 12-27-11, p.B5) that items [company culture,
management practices and compensation shortcomings.]
that appear in social media and such places as
Glassdoor.com and Wetfeet.com can negatively
influence the best candidates.

Glassdoor.com and Wetfeet.com seem to offer sanitized
reviews and some insight into employee attitudes.  Direct
contact with your network would seem to be called for
to confirm information you find.

[We have reported the use of LinkedIn.com to
find “factual information” about firms.]
