Job search and recruiting giant Glassdoor, based in Mill Valley, has laid off 300 employees, or 30% of its workforce, including 81 workers in Marin, according to a report in the Marin Independent Journal.
Most of the job losses came out of the company's Chicago office, according to a required notice the company filed with the state, the newspaper said.
"Employers as a whole have dramatically reduced their recruiting, and it is not clear when this will recover," CEO Christian Sutherland-Wong wrote in a memo to employees earlier this month.
Glassdoor Inc., owned by Japanese firm Recruit Holdings, is a job search engine that also provides reviews and salary data from employees of large companies and translates that data into rankings.
Sutherland-Wong was appointed CEO in August, taking over for co-founder and former CEO Robert Hohman, who now serves as the company's chairman.
