Best Companies To Work For In 2019, According To Their Employees

Mark Zuckerberg

Of the top 100 large companies, 29 were tech companies.

Some are household names, like Facebook - which was #1 on the 2018 list but dropped several spots following a scandal-filled year.

It is possible that Facebook slipped in the list this year because of all the controversies that have surrounded it.

Employee satisfaction at Facebook has taken a big hit in the past year, according to new research from Glassdoor.

A Facebook employee at the company's Menlo Park headquarters warned Glassdoor visitors not to believe all the negative press. There were seven Seattle-area tech companies on the list a year ago. In a year when the search giant faced a protest walkout by more than 20,000 employees and the social media platform's leadership has come under a harsh spotlight for its handling of users' personal data and role in the 2016 election, one might assume the decline is a sign of worsening employee morale. In the first quarter of 2018, Facebook's employee satisfaction rating was at 4.6.

But the one-time Mets ace who had garnered the nickname Dark Knight was never the same pitcher after the surgery. According to the Sixers , Fultz will remain out indefinitely as he begins physical therapy immediately.

Facebook's descent isn't all that surprising. In a statement reported by the Journal, the company said "it has been a hard period, but every day we see people pulling together to learn the lessons of the past year and build a stronger company". "We have spent many years building a superlative organization that rivals some of Chicagoland's most successful and forward-thinking companies, and the Glassdoor Best Places to Work recognition demonstrates our accomplishments in this endeavor". Rounding out the top 10 were, In-N-Out Burger (No. 3), construction project management software company Procore Technologies (No. 4), Boston Consulting Group (No. 5), LinkedIn (No. 6), Facebook (No. 7), Google (No. 8), lululemon (No. 9), and Southwest Airlines (No. 10).

Facebook's year of controversy appears to have taken its toll on the company's consistent top ranking in Glassdoor's Best Places to Work list.

Employee reviews cited the company's culture and community events as pluses.

"In today's tight labour market, job seekers are in the driver's seat when it comes to deciding where to work and they want to know the inner workings of a company before accepting a new job", said Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor Chief Economist.

"If it's really happening", he says, "you'll see the truth come out".
