Best Places to Work: Facebook loses grounds; Apple gains
Boston-based management consulting firm Bain & Co. has dislodged social media firm Facebook to be ranked number one best place to work in 2019.
TheNewsGuru (TNG) reports Facebook lost the best place to work tag after being hit by users’ data scandals amid falling stocks this year, while Apple moved up in the list of top-rated employers.
According to leading jobs website Glassdoor’s annual “100 Best Places to Work in the US” list that came out on Wednesday, Facebook is now ranked number seven, scoring 4.5 out of a perfect 5.
While Apple moved up from No 84 to 71 with a score of 4.3, Microsoft moved up from No 39 to 34 as its score dropped from 4.4 to 4.3.
Microsoft-owned LinkedIn, however, is at sixth place with a score of 4.5, read the information on the Glassdoor website.
While Facebook was the best place to work in America last year, Cupertino-based tech giant Apple had tumbled to number 84 in 2017 from its 36th position in 2016.
Amazon didn’t even make it to the list, with an award score of 4.1, just outside of the top 100.
Apple, on the other hand, moved up in the ranking, from No. 84 to 71, though it maintained the same score of 4.3. Microsoft moved up in ranking from No. 39 to 34 on the list although their award score dropped from 4.4 to 4.3. Google was 8th while Salesforce came 11th.
The Top-100 list by Glassdoor is for large organisations or those with at least 1,000 employees.
