According to the list of 100 best places to work in the US made by Glassdoor, the company dropped from #1 position all the way to rank #7 for 2019. Glassdoor claimed that this list is determined by feedback from the employees.

Bain & Company is the one that replaces Facebook to claim the No. 1 spot. A total of 29 technology companies are featuring in this list. Those companies include Apple (rank 71), Microsoft (rank 34), Google (rank 8), and LinkedIn (rank 6). For the first time, HP (rank 87) was also featured in this top 100 best companies since Glassdoor started this list in 2008.

Google Pittsburgh 1

Google's rank also got dropped from No.5 last year to No.8 in 2019's list

Apple, Google, and Bain & Company are three firms that have managed to stay on this list every single year.

Facebook dropping all the way from No. 1 spot to no. 7 happens after the social networking company has just faced a ton of scandals. The most notable one that should be mentioned is the Cambridge Analytica scandal and election meddling, in which around data of 87 million users in the social networking site was shared with the political consultancy without users’ consent.

Employees of Facebook have spoken the issue of the company’s workplace as well. A former Facebook manager just shared a memo he would send to all employees at Facebook stating that the company has a “black people problem.” Moreover, a lot more employees are reportedly contacting their former coworkers to ask about the jobs outside Facebook.

Glassdoor, creator of this list, relies on anonymous reviews on the site when they made this list.

According to Glassdoor, Facebook got praised on the Glassdoor site for its benefits and compensation, giving the giant social network a 4.6 out of 5 rating. But when it comes to the work-life balance of Facebook, it got the lowest rating of only 3.8.

An employee reviewed, "Work-life balance is terrible. Everyone in my team works outside regular hours, nights and weekends. No one will explicitly say that you have to do this, but given the competitive culture, you pretty much put in extra hours. "

Bain & Company impressively stayed at the top of this list the fourth time, previously in 2012, 2014 and 2017.

The best ten places to work at for 2019 are as follows:

10. Southwest Airlines

9. Lululemon

8. Google

7. Facebook

6. LinkedIn

5. Boston Consulting Group

4. Procore Technologies

3. In-N-Out Burger

2. Zoom Video Communications

1. Bain & Company
