Hey everyone. I got some time to do the latest update to the board software, but it meant that all the old modifications and styles wouldn't work anymore. So, here you have the newest iteration of LabourTalk. Please let me know by Private Message if you run into any issues with the new styling. Some new features on the board are:

  • Latest HTML5 Responsive Styling - You can now see a new, more modern styling on the board. Along with this, you can resize the browser to see the board change with it. The board is now functional on all sizes of screens, including your cell phone, table and desktop/laptop.
  • Post Sharing - Although you could previously, the new layout means the sharing icons are more visible on the lower right hand corner of each post. Click your favourite social media outlet to share the desired post with them.
  • Multiple Themes - Previously there was only one theme in an attempt to lower the workload when modifications were put in place. Fortunately, the new modification system is much simpler to implement and we now have multiple colour options for you to enjoy. You can change these from your User Control Panel under the Board Settings heading.
  • Announcements - Announcements can now be posted here (where you're seeing this one) and, in most cases, can be dismissed. To dismiss them, please click the "X" in the top right corner of this box.
  • Collapsing Categories - Categories, such as News & Announcements or Welcome (below), can be collapsed to clear up some of the clutter. This state should be maintained as long as you're logged in.

We hope you like the changes!

Where employees talk about their job

Postby ironheat » Thu May 29, 2008 9:38 am

Sometimes it seems really important to know about a company before getting in there. No recruiter or a management-level personal will ever point to negative aspects of a company. In some sites, people opened forums / tools to discuss their employers, companies, grade them. It is a human factor, that mostly unhappy people ( who have negative feelings and bad impressions about their job) would go there, so the feedback is pretty subjective. But still it should reflect some main aspects... At the end of the day, if 100 people say that the management of the company 'A' is bad - there might be something wrong with that company.

I found this site for USA: jobvent.com
for Canada: boldpen.ca
.... other sites? other countries?

Funny timing Iron... I have it on good authority that a new website is coming that is like what you describe, but completely different.

It is not working yet, but I am watching.

www.ratemyunion.com is in the works, like the infamous www.ratemyteacher.com and www.ratemyemployer.com

The latter is close to what you are suggesting but without the blog content.

If you want to get folks blowing off steam about their employer, launch into one, we'll happily start a new section.

LabourTalk mean you can talk about Labour in any guise, employer, union non-union... fly at `er.

My vote would be "Yes" I would talk about my employer. But I can't vote `cause I am an Admin.

Find - Desiderata - read it
