Job seekers depend on reviews, social media, and other outlets to help them evaluate prospective employers. Similarly, employers depend on these sources to stay informed of how they rank across the industry and by their own worforce. When it comes to the “inside scoop” on an employer’s environment, practices, quality of life, etc., what are the best tools to use?

Here are three popular tools to read up on your prospective employer:

  1. Glassdoor: The “free jobs and career community that offers the world an inside look at jobs and companies” resource with “intel” straight from employees.
  2. Indeed: The “#1 job site worldwide, with over 100 million unique visitors per month.” Indeed has job listings for prospective employees as well as resume listings for prospective employers.
  3. Vault: Provides information to prospective employees about jobs, top employers, careers, job search advice, salary listings, message boards and more.
