The best USA companies to work for

The best USA companies to work for”

While Facebook still managed to retain its positioning in the top 10 best companies to work for in 2019 list outed by Glassdoor, check here who the other ones are that beat the Mark Zuckerberg led social network giant. Google also fell in the ranks compared to previous year, although it only dropped three spots compared to Facebook's six, now coming in at number eight. To put into context, more than 830,000 employers are reviewed on Glassdoor and the average company rating is 3.4 out of 5.

Four companies have made the list for the past four years- Starbucks, Apple, video game maker Ubisoft, and human resources software company Ceridian, according to Glassdoor.

Management consulting firm Bain & Company reclaimed the top spot after taking No. 1 two years ago.

Anglian Water came in at number 1 for the first time with a rating of 4.5. One review cited the company's support of employee goals as a perk of employment. This year it seems that the controversies and resulting internal tension have taken a toll at Facebook's work culture and the company has slipped in the ranking. The company has topped the list three out of 11 years.

Hit by users' data scandals amid falling stocks this year, Facebook has lost the tag of best place to work in the USA while Apple has moved up in the list of top-rated employers. Google 9. lululemon 10.

Earlier this year, the Japanese firm Recruit Holdings, which also owns the biggest jobs site, Indeed, acquired Glassdoor in a $1.2 billion deal that was one of the larger technology acquisitions of 2018.

While Facebook was the best place to work in America past year, Cupertino-based tech giant Apple had tumbled to number 84 in 2017 from its 36th position in 2016.

At a time when a tight labor market and a cultural appetite for transparency and accountability has grown, Glassdoor's rankings can be seen as a way of reinforcing why that "employer brand" matters, and can help draw the attention of CEOs who want to do well on such rankings.

Reviews had come from current and former employees between 23 October, 2017 and 21 October, 2018.

Chamberlain says the company audits the reviews for any signs of stuffed ballot boxes by employers, looking for suspect IP address patterns, for example. Workers said the company offers great training and opportunities to advance.
