San Francisco: Hit by users’ data scandals amid falling stocks this year, Facebook has lost the tag of best place to work in the US while Apple has moved up in the list of top-rated employers. According to the leading job website Glassdoor’s annual “100 Best Places to Work in the US” list that came out on Wednesday, Boston-based management consulting firm Bain & Co. has been ranked No 1. Facebook is now ranked No 7 — scoring 4.5 out of a perfect 5.
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. The Glassdoor list came at a time when media reports said several Facebook employees are looking for better opportunities as scrutiny of the company’s conduct rises following several cases of data leak and as its stock price take a beating.
