“Facebook is full of extremely capable and smart people. The lines are very short, and it’s easy to get a hold of the right person to talk to on any topic,” a Facebook Product Manager told Glassdoor. “There’s no red tape, so it’s really up to you to have a big impact on the product and the world. People who make a big impact are recognized and rewarded, regardless of their job title or level of experience. The company’s leadership truly believes in Facebook’s mission to make the world more open and connected. Teams are small and have a lot of autonomy, and it’s amazing to see how much of a difference a single person can make at this place.”
Aside from Facebook, 19 other technology-related companies made the list. Salesforce.com (NYSE:CRM), Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) and Red Hat (NYSE:RHT) came in at 22, 31 and 33, respectively. Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), the world’s largest publicly traded company, ranked 34. Google and Apple have made the list for the past five consecutive years, while Facebook has made the cut for the past three years.
“The Employees’ Choice Awards are one of the highest honors a company can receive, as it is an authentic and tangible reflection of employee satisfaction,” Glassdoor’s CEO and co-founder Robert Hohman said in a statement, according to CNET. “Due to greater workplace transparency, information about what it’s like to work at particular companies is becoming increasingly influential as job seekers and employees consider their next career move.”
