Glassdoor, a jobs and career community, releases a list of the best places to work for every year. A lot of other websites comprise similar lists, but what makes Glassdoor’s list unique is that it’s based on feedback from anonymous employees who actually work at the companies.
For the last three years Facebook has been in the top three while Apple has appeared in the number spot in the past as well. For 2013 Glassdoor ranked Apple as the 34th best place to work at, while Facebook grabbed the number one spot.
Apple competitor Google was ranked 6th, while other companies like Amazon, Samsung, and Microsoft didn’t make the cut at all. One thing to consider in the rankings is that Apple’s ranking is also a measure of its retail operations as well, while Facebook and Google are more strictly focused on software development.
Facebook’s employees commented that they enjoy the opportunity to impact a billion people, the company’s hacker culture, trust in CEO Mark Zuckerberg and that company perks help employees balance their work and personal lives.
If you want to see all the companies that made the cut here’s the full list.
