Glassdoor investors

In May 2018, Glassdoor was sold to a company from Japan – Recruit Holdings for 1.2 billion dollars. Not bad for the ethically challenged founders of Glassdoor.

Recruit Holdings was founded in 1960 and is listed on the Toyko Stock Exchange. Recruit Holdings owns the following US job sites:, and Simply Hired.

The officers of Recruit are below. Please call them and complain about the Glassdoor website and the problems that you as an employer may have experienced in the posting of a defamatory and false review of your company.
