5 Reasons to Use Glassdoor to Evaluate Outsourcing Companies

Plenty of job seekers rely on Glassdoor for employee reviews of companies, but it has another important use as well. Glassdoor can be a powerful resource for evaluating outsourcing companies. Here are a few of the most important reasons you should look at Glassdoor when you’re deciding what outsourcing companies you should work with:

1. Employees Are The Service

When you pay for the services of an outsourcing company, you’re paying for the performance of their employees. That means employee satisfaction can be an important indicator of the actual quality of what you’re paying for. 

Not only do happier employees perform their duties better, but satisfaction can indicate a number of things about how the company is run. Satisfied employees are more likely to have competent management, proper training, and higher performance.

2. Unvarnished Reviews 

More than overall employee satisfaction, Glassdoor is helpful for its individual employee and ex-employee reviews. While there are some ways to game the overall review metrics, employers can’t stop negative employee reviews from showing up.

That means that you get a real, unvarnished view of the actual thoughts of dissatisfied employees. Obviously, these reviews are biased, but you can glean real insights from them. Legitimate employee complaints can be a great way to learn about individual companies’ operational faults.

3. Understand Incentive Structures

Glassdoor also lets you see how companies compensate individual positions. That lets you see whether companies give their demand-generation professionals performance-based bonuses. 

Performance-based bonuses are an essential part of any demand generation team’s incentive structure, but some companies think they can save a quick buck by not properly compensating their employees. More often than not, this backfires, as poorly compensated employees lead to poor overall performance.

4. Evaluate Their Growth

Glassdoor can also let you know how many new positions a company is currently hiring for, and whether they recently went on a hiring spree. Hiring sprees can be good, as they can signal that a company got a recent round of VC funding or otherwise feels confident about its future.

But hiring sprees can also be unsustainable, and it’s important to know where the company got the money for a new batch of employees. Glassdoor can be a great jumping-off point for conversations about an outsourcing company’s growth. It can let you know whether they’ll still be around to partner with you in the long term.

5. Review Employee Resources

When you purchase the services of a demand generation outsourcing company, you aren’t just buying leads and dials. You’re also paying for their enterprise lead generation software; it’s part of why outsourcing makes sense in a recession

Glassdoor reviews tell you whether employees got the tools they needed. They can shed light on whether the outsourcing company is investing enough money in essential equipment. Employees will report whether they had what they needed to succeed, and in turn, you’ll know where your money is going.

Glassdoor can be a great way to get an inside look at the ups and downs of demand generation outsourcing companies. It gives you as close to an unbiased view of how companies operate as you can get. If you’re looking at outsourcing companies, feel free to talk to Salaria about the services we offer as well!

Salaria has done a great job increasing the total amount of prospective leads for our company. Elizabeth and her team are very professional and the amount of calls they crank out with just a few people is remarkable! We value the collaborative process, and the open line of communication makes it easy to adjust strategies on the move without any down time. The weekly reports & dashboards they provide are a very nice touch. Overall a great experience with an honest and hard-working company who's motivated to help us grow our sales.

Salaria is amazing! I have spoken with several companies like Salaria, but I have found them to be mostly talk. Salaria does exactly what they say they are going to do - they get meetings! I greatly appreciated that even though we had a slow start, they came in an worked hard to earn regain our trust. They are always tweaking and improving their process to make sure they are meeting our needs.

Salaria has been a game changer for us! We have tried various companies and internal processes to manage a rather difficult lead gen process and they have performed way better than we expected. They adapt to our feedback. They provide clear information. They are always looking for ways to improve. If you are on the fence, just pull the trigger. Salaria will do everything they say and more!

Great company and great people. I am super impressed with our director of account management LP and his team. I have been with them for about 4 months and just signed for a 6 month extension. I have been getting TOO MANY HIGH QUALITY LEADS to manage and am now forced to build out my sales team because of Salaria :) Highly recommended. The cost will pay for itseld quickly.

We started working with Salaria about 10 months ago and they have been able to generate about 60-70 meetings of which 4 deals have closed. I was a bit skeptical before deciding to work with them because I didn’t know if we could effectively outsource part of our sales development strategy. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how well things have gone. We’ve also seen an improvement in conversion rates across the whole team because we started using a lot of the scripts and templates Salaria was using. I have to admit that they've been impressive with how helpful they’ve been from a strategy perspective. Highly recommend these guys!
