According to Glassdoor’s annual report, tech companies are a recurring theme on the list of America’s top ten employers for 2018. Facebook holds the first position with Google coming in fifth, and HubSpot seventh.
Companies from the retail, consulting, and healthcare sectors are also on the list. However, one may wonder what makes Facebook such a special employer.
According to surveyed people the Menlo Park, Calif.-based company is especially alluring due to its work culture, transparent leadership, and the fact that it has a major impact on billions of users globally, Glassdoor found.
One of Facebook VPs, Lori Goler, praised the new rankings since they have been largely based on a survey’s of Facebook’s employees. Goler thinks the results reflect the firm’s internal culture.
According to Facebook, its employees benefit from “great feedback” and training. There are many opportunities for growth, and individuals can have a great impact. Goler explained that the entire organization is based on people’s strengths, which can have a huge impact when all these factors are scaled up.
Goler also disclosed that the company is working towards improving communications across all levels of management. There are weekly Q&A sessions with the tech giant’s founder Mark Zuckerberg. People are being trained for “hard conversations” at Facebook.
Glassdoor noted that there are several newcomers to its list, like T-Mobile on the 79th spot, Blizzard Entertainment and the 28th spot, and Adidas on the 93rd. Fast-food has fared better than previous years with In-N-Out Burger holding the fourth spot and Chick-fil-A the 72nd.
Glassdoor researchers based their analysis on yearly surveys from current and former employees. This makes the list quite transparent and honest when it comes to the companies’ work culture and workplace attributes.
This year’s top ten list includes 1. Facebook; 2. Bain & Company; 3. Boston Consulting Group; 4. In-N-Out Burger; 5. Google; 6. lululemon; 7. HubSpot; 8. World Wide Technology; 9. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital; and 10. Ultimate Software.
