Why Facebook is the Best Place to Work

December 6, 2017

Workforce information company Glassdoor released its annual Employees' Choice Awards, highlighting the best places to work, and the highest-rated CEOs. This year, Facebook three-peated, snagging the top spot yet again for 2018. The company has managed to rank in the top five since 2011.

Glassdoor CEO Robert Hohman says the award methodology is quantitative.. The company determines the winner based on employee feedback over the last year, through company reviews and ratings. Facebook employees, in particular, rave about their work’s impact, and the transparent work culture.

“People talk about the fact that their work gets to impact 2 billion people around the planet,” Hohman said. “There’s only a couple of companies in the world that can say that. You’re talking Facebook, you’re talking Google, that’s about it.”

Facebook competed against companies such as management consulting company Bain & Company, Boston Consulting Group, In-and-Out Burger, and Google, which respectively rounded out the top five. The executive says that individuals are seeking a work environment that combines business and purpose.
