Web Design Critique: Glassdoor

Web Design Critique: Glassdoor

Job marketplaces with online reviews like those of King Kong SEO reviews are a big thing right now, thanks to the number of people looking for jobs and the importance people put on online reviews.  Glassdoor is one of the many job-seeking sites operating in the world.

As for how it does amidst the already crowded field?

Glassdoor sports the usual professional-looking white background paired with black text, coloured elements, and images. What it does well, however, is that the site uses images to highlight the main pages of the subsections, which not only gives it a humanizing element, as well as making it easy to identify which section one is actually looking at.

Navigation is pretty straightforward, with links available at the top and the bottom of every page. That being said, the main menu doesn’t follow the browser when the visitor does any scrolling down. This isn’t too bad, as most of the pages keep themselves short, without feeling uninformative, but it’s notable as company and specific reviews like King Kong SEO reviews do have that function for the navigation bar for the specific topic, which is worth questioning.

As for content itself, it works rather well, with text being long enough to be properly informative, without feeling boring and overly lengthy. That is, in part, due to the excellent use of the visual media like images, logos, and videos, in order to keep things interesting.

The site doesn’t take long to load, even with all of that vibrancy and colour, with pages loading in a second or two, depending on how much is in a page. It’s also well compartmentalized, though there’s the trade-off that there are a lot of pages to go through.

If one wants to take a peek at the site, however, the issue with registration on the site pops up. There isn’t actually wrong with the function, it’s just that a considerable chunk of the site’s content is locked behind that wall. There’s still a lot to see and learn about, but it’s a little overly-aggressive with the registration. Granted, that’s useful given its purpose.

All in all, it’s a well-put together site, though it lacks in refinement.
