Facebook's ranking drops in 'best places to work' list

Best Companies To Work For In 2019 According To Their Employees

Tech companies took a third of the top spots in terms of best places to work based on employee ratings, according to a Glassdoor report.

The big tech companies actually don't fare all that well in the list of best places to work.

This is the fourth time Bain & Company has topped Glassdoor's list. Starting wages are above California's minimum wage requirements, and the company also offers eligible employees benefits and access to retirement plans.

While Facebook was the best place to work in America previous year, Cupertino-based tech giant Apple had tumbled to number 84 in 2017 from its 36th position in 2016.

The Top-100 list by Glassdoor is for large organisations or those with at least 1,000 employees.

The tech company employees, once in love with free food, flexible works hours and resort like offices, have also started looking at how much time they are giving to their office and for what.

The top spot on the list this year goes to management consulting firm Bain & Company. One of the reviews by an Anglian Water Asset Delivery Manager (Lincoln, England UK) said: "The workforce is clearly proud, passionate and really cares about the work they do, which results in a really positive culture and working environment". It rose a number of spots from last year's ranking of 21. Facebook ranked No. 1 for five of the past eight years. Google was 8th while Salesforce came 11th. Others companies that made the cut are lesser known but are still providing exceptional experiences for their employees. Google 9. lululemon 10. The search giant's ranking is also down from fifth place in 2018.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai was scheduled to testify before lawmakers on Wednesday, but the hearing is postponed due to the funeral for former President George H.W. Bush. These controversies started with the Cambridge Analytica revelations early this year but since then nearly every month there was something new.

A Facebook employee at the company's Menlo Park headquarters warned Glassdoor visitors not to believe all the negative press. To put into context, more than 830,000 employers are reviewed on Glassdoor and the average company rating is 3.4 out of 5.

Google's overall rating fell from 4.6 to 4.4 over the year, with it too facing a year of unrest among employees, including worker protests over its work on the Pentagon's AI Project Maven and the global walkout over its handling of sexual harassment by top executives.
