How do I remove a bad comment from google places?

Here is the only option, currently provided, to deal with negative fake reviews:
First, make sure the review is really a fake one. Try to track back and find out who wrote the review. The easiest way to do that is to check the Google Places profile of the user who left it. You have to simply click on their nickname next to the review, and you will be able to see all the history of their Google Maps activity.
After you are sure that the review is fake, you will need to take the following steps:
Flag the review as inappropriate via the “Flag as inappropriate” button under it.
Go to the Google Places Help Forum and start a new thread, where you would explain what the situation is in detail. Hopefully, a Google Employee or a Top Contributor will notice it and notify the Google Places tech team, so that they would be able to remove it.
(Optional) Respond to the review following the rules of appropriate behavior and good tone. You don’t need a controversy with a fake reviewer as you never know what they would do next. Reply politely and try to make the situation look as if you would like to learn more about what the faker is referring to and try showing that you would like to solve the problem personally.
There is no guarantee that the fake review would ever be removed, but these are basically the only steps that a business owner can currently take to protect themselves from negative reviews.

As both human and robot analytics reviews all employee posts, its is likely to have met the standards and guidelines of an acceptable post. However, if you feel that the content of a review is out of line, you can contact Glassdoor to determine if they have the right to take it down. Glassdoor may have the ability to:
Flag Questionable Content: If an employee does post any false, misleading, or defamatory content, the company or subject of the harmful review may contact a Glassdoor representative to flag the content. If the terms are violated, Glassdoor will flag content as a violation. It will be reviewed by moderators who will then have it removed from the site if deemed inappropriate.
