Facebook heads list of best places to work third year in a row


Third time in a row is a pretty impressive record. The social media giants has for the third year in a row topped Glassdoor’s list of best places to work. This results was posted late on Wednesday. Workers of Facebook are considered to be the luckiest on earth.

Facebook has been known for taking good care of its workers, with their care extending beyond just the free meals, on-site health care or new-parent benefits that they offer. Those things though were considered highly when Facebook is being named as the best place to work in 2018. This revelation was made by jobs site Glassdoor. This is a very important achievement for the company as this is the third year in a row that it is heading the Glassdoor’s list of 100 best places to work.

The Glassdoor saw around 40 new companies join the fray for next year. Some of these companies include video game maker Blizzard Entertainment (at No. 28 on the list) and wireless carrier T-Mobile (No. 79). The list also contains some regulars that have graced the list ever since it was established 10 years ago. Some of these companies include management-consulting firm Bain & Company (No. 2), search giant Google (No. 5) and Apple (No. 84).

The list is very important as companies are working hard to ensure that their workplace becomes more appealing as that will go a long way in attracting and retaining talented and highly skilled employees. The most surprising position this year is the fourth position that is occupied by In-N-Out Burger.

Let us have a look at the top 20 companies on the list.

Facebook, Bain & Company, Boston Consulting Group, In-N-Out Burger, Google, lululemon, HubSpot, World Wide Technology, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Ultimate Software, SAP, McKinsey & Company, Keller Williams, E. & J. Gallo Winery, Salesforce, Power Home Remodeling, Delta Air Lines, Academy Mortgage.

Whether the list also implies Facebook subsidiaries such as WhatsApp and Instagram isn’t known. What is for sure is that list for next year will be hotly contested as companies are working round the clock to ensure that their working space becomes more attractive.
