Glassdoor is a problem because the only people who post there have an
axe to grind.

So, you guys are smart. What if you develop a scoring system for
companies akin to "The Joel Test"
http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/fog0000000043.html that
generates some kind of scorecard of your opinions about a company.
Then simply post anonymously on glassdoor with a comment that includes
a little footer like PLUGSCORE: 152332 and only Pluggers have the key
for decoding what that actually MEANS.

Then the only thing PLUG is responsible for is that the website has a
KEY (available to members) to decoding the score for example, but does
NOT host or retain any data about people's opinions of those
companies.
1. Are you a current employee (1), former employee (2) or interviewing
candidate (3)
2. Overall impression of the company: Top-notch (5), Average/Meh (3),
Dislike (1)

Other questions could be about how you felt the interview process
goes... if you felt the team is professional and you could work for
them.... if they espouse open source programming principles, etc? or
even some of the Joel Test questions, etc.
