How can a company recover after a Glassdoor debacle?

This is concerning one of my previous employers. Recently some junior dev left
a bad review, people found out, and this triggered a wave of disgruntled posts detailing their ill experiences. These are centered mostly around the use of old technologies, the inability of management to keep pace with newer tech, and the disappointment of new hires at having to write legacy code right out of the door. Many of them are emotional and some come off a bit bratty, but it’s encouraged others to do the same.

People from business units (ie. not devs) heard about it and some have also chipped in, their input being mostly positive or neutral.

This is not happening to me, but for the purpose of this question I don’t think it matters. Assuming I was the CEO or had a place in management, what could I do regarding damage control?

This is obviously hurting the business as savvy applicants will be discouraged from joining (not that they were flocking before, but let’s put that aside) and potential clients may get second thoughts before signing a contract with a business with such internal turmoil.

So far the following things have been tried:

  • Leave a comment under each review calling it fake. Yeah, that didn’t go well. These were thankfully removed after a level-headed reviewer called out the CEO for doing it.
  • Write to Glassdoor asking them to remove “fake” reviews. The CEO seems convinced they were all written by the same person. I don’t know what Glassdoor’s response was, but no reviews have been removed yet.
  • Ask employees, directly or indirectly, to write some good reviews instead. This produced a few positives, but nowhere near enough to turn the tide.
  • Ignore it.

How can I recover my Gmail if I don’t have access to my Gmail and I don’t remember my password…

This question already has an answer here:

My account was stolen a few months ago and I forgot about it until recently when I got my ps4 and someone had changed the password to my email so I could not log onto the account I had spent hundred of dollars on and thousands of hours on.

Is there a method to recover camphene from sublimation at ambient conditions?

Camphene solidifies and sublimates at ambient room temperature below 45°C. I’m aware that a glass funnel is often used to separate mixtures through sublimation of the volatile component (in this case camphene) from another material.

Is it possible to recover sublimated camphene using this or another method?

How can I Recover deleted WhatsApp Images on Samsung Galaxy S2?

The day before yesterday I was browsing my WhatsApp images. Upon browsing them, I accidentally deleted one image that means a lot to me.

  1. I’ve tried Dr.Fone did not really work.

  2. I’ve heard that if I uninstall it, I’ll be able to restore my data (but I am not sure, I am afraid I’ll lose my data).

How can I recover the source code from cdf file?

by a mistake I have deleted the nb file by which the CDF was generated.

All required definitions were in one cell. If I remember the code looked like this:

Grid[{{Button[..],..}, 
  Dynamic[ ParametricPlot[..,Initialization:>{functions definitions}]]]

and later I selected the output cell and saved the selection by:
File > CDF Export > Standalone.

I can open the CDF in a text editor but it is highly unreadable and is difficult to extract all the math commands.

What is the best way to recover from a massive dip in community involvement?

We made a policy change last month. It seems many users didn’t like such a change and have started migrating away. It started with a few highly respected members giving “Good Bye” speeches. Then others started jumping on the band wagon.

At first we thought it was just bluster. We’ve had drama before and realize that people come and go. However, this time the site analytics show the users have indeed jumped ship. Traffic is down nearly 50% month over month.

What is the best way to recover from such a massive dip in community involvement? Revisiting the policy is an option, but those users are already gone. That seems like closing the barn door after the horse has bolted.

How to access and recover files that are in an “invisible” or “nameless” directory (using terminal)?

The other day I had my USB borrowed and got it’s contents modified by some type of minor malware I’m guessing. I could no longer find my files but they were taking up space.

I proceeded to list the files on my CMD prompt using the following command: dir /s/a \?/d:/ESD-USB and got back a dump of the files and directories that are currently in my drive, part of the dump looks like this:

Directory of \?d:ESD-USB boot

10/29/2018  02:06 PM              .

12/27/2017  06:01 AM              resources
6 File(s)      4,116,408 bytes

All my files are currently in the ESD-USB directory and I would like to know how to access them or move them on Windows or OSX using the terminal on either platforms so I can recover my files.

Note: boot is only one of several folders that are within the USB drive. I didn’t want to bother posting the whole dump I obtained from the terminal so I just posted a small snippet for clarity sake.

Thanks!

How to access and recover files that are in an “invisible” or “nameless” directory

the other day I had my USB borrowed and got it I don’t know if I could say infected, but definitely some troll type of script that moved the files saved in the USB into an “empty name” directory.

I could list the files on my CMD prompt using the following command: dir /s/a \?/d:/ESD-USB and got back among other things messages that looked like this:
