I applied for a job based on the job description and now have an interview with the Recruiter in the next couple of days. In preparation for the interview I did some research and have serious concerns about the company. E.g., most of the most recent Glassdoor reviews describe the company as a "sinking ship" with poor benefits and poor leadership.

How would you approach this situation? Would you mention the bad reviews to the recruiter? Cancel? Continue and see what happens?

I would bring it up outright but as gracefully as you can. Something along the lines of, “In doing my research for the position, I saw where there was a consistent concern regarding the company’s future. I want to bring value and curve those interpretations if you choose me as the right candidate. What seems to be the root of these opinions and how can I follow SOP in this role while also curving such interpretations?

You could ask the recruiter "what benefits do personally you love about the company?", or ask "on the last company emloyee survey what were the most common things employees liked/loved about working for the organisation"
