Glassdoor’s best places to work

The world’s biggest job sit has released its top employers list – all based on employee feedback.

Workplace review site Glassdoor has released its rankings of Employees’ Choice Awards for 2018’s Best Places to Work, with Facebook topping the list for the third time.

 The rankings, now in their 10th year, have been compiled based on anonymous reviews left in the last year by employees past and present. Only companies with more than 1,000 employees were considered.

This year, the Glassdoor Employees' Choice Awards feature six distinct categories, honouring the Best Places to Work across the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France and Germany.

“To help people find companies that stand out from the pack, the Glassdoor Employees' Choice Awards recognize employers that are truly Best Places to Work because they're determined by those who really know best - the employees," said Robert Hohman, CEO and co-founder of Glassdoor.

"Employers where employees love to work continue to prove that they have a recruiting and business performance advantage,” he added.

"The most important thing is the people who work at Facebook. We are thrilled with this award because it comes from real employees' reviews and authentic feedback," said Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook Chief Operating Officer.

When employees submit reviews about their employer on Glassdoor, they are asked to discuss the pros and cons of working for that employer. Additionally, they are asked to rate how satisfied they are with their employer overall, their CEO, and key workplace attributes like career opportunities, compensation & benefits, culture & values, senior management and work-life balance.

The top five employers according to the rankings all have ratings of 4.6 – higher than the Glassdoor average of 3.3 (based on 700,000 employers).

Here is the top five list:

  1. Facebook
  2. Bain & Company
  3. Boston Consulting Group
  4. In-N-Out Burger
  5. Google
