According to Indeed, Facebook ranked as the best place to work in 2018. The career website compiled its annual list of the 50 top-rated workplaces, based on 72 million employer ratings and reviews of Fortune 500 companies.
Paul Wolfe, senior vice president at Indeed said “Clearly, Facebook’s employees over the last two years believe that there’s been transparency internally, from the top down. The company is also focused on perks and benefits, which brings it to the top of the list.”
“Companies that have a progressive culture, focus on the employee experience and make sure their employees are engaged to tend to make the top 10,” Wolfe said.
Anthony Harrison, a Facebook spokesperson, said in an interview “While it might appear that the challenges the company has recently faced might deter people, the employees we attract are the type of people that tend to be excited and engaged in those big, complicated problems and would like to solve them”.
Technology companies and airlines dominated the highest-rated workplaces. Southwest Airlines and Salesforce.com followed in second and third place, respectively. Delta Air Lines Inc., JetBlue Airways Corp., and Apple Inc. also ranked among the top 10.
