After hitting by the user data scandals, amid falling stocks this year, Facebook has lost the tag of the best place to work in America while now 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 today, Boston-based management consulting firm Bain & Co. has been ranked No 1. Facebook has now been ranked to No 7 with the score of 4.5 out of 5. Apple now has moved 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.
Linkedin however, as of now on the 6th position with a score of 4.5. while Facebook was the best place to work in America last year, Apple had tumbled to number 84 in 2017 from its 36th position in 2016.
Amazon did not even come in the list with a 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 organizations or those with at least 1,000 employees.
According to a report citing an internal survey at Facebook, just over half of Facebook employees (52 per cent) said they were optimistic about the future of the social networking platform – down by 32 per cent last year.
According to the report, Facebook's “difficult year is taking a toll on employee morale, with several key measures of internal sentiment taking a sharp turn for the worse over the past year.”
Only 53 per cent of Facebook employees said the company was making the world better, which is 19 per cent lower than last year.
Facebook investors have increased the pressure on the CEO and Chairman Mark Zuckerberg to step down after the New York Times investigation suggested that the social network hired a Republican owned political consulting and PR firm that “dug up dirt on its competitors.” Zuckerberg, however, has refused to quit.
