Stat of the day: 86% of Americans do not know any online tools for learning honest information about employers.

That’s a problem. You’ve probably heard it a million times: knowledge is power. And when it comes to the job hunt, knowledge is everything. Without reliable information about what an employer is really like, it’s impossible to make an informed decision about a job. And the job search is stressful enough without having to play a guessing game about work culture, crazy/not-crazy bosses, etc.

Here’s the good news. At kununu, reliable information is our whole “thing.” Actually, you could say we’re obsessed with it. Our site is designed to make real employer reviews available to anyone, anywhere—you don’t even need to register to check them out.

Why are we doing this? Because we want people to have better jobs and happier lives. And we go out of our way to be fair to employers, too: they can respond to reviews on their own pages, no problem. You get both sides of the story.

The thing is, if you’re a company, you want to tell an attractive story about yourself to the world. You make a website, you hire PR, all that stuff. It’s just natural. And that info can be useful. But people looking for jobs also want the inside scoop: the stories real workers are telling. At kununu, we believe we’re leveling the playing field. It’s why we’re here.

Help us show the world the power of transparency. Submit a review today, and share what your workplace is really like!
