By Justin Lafferty Comment


Facebook has been highly-rated by its employees for culture and values, coming in at No. 5 overall nationally in a new Glassdoor report.

Twitter, with an average rating of 4.5, actually took the top spot. Facebook employees rated the company an average of 4.3 (out of 5), in terms of the culture and values of the company.

Glassdoor community expert Scott Dobroski discussed with Inside Facebook what makes Facebook so special:

As number five on Glassdoor’s inaugural list of the Top 25 Companies for Culture & Values, Facebook employees report high satisfaction with many aspects of its culture. Tech companies are known for their laid-back, hacker cultures and Facebook is no different with its ‘move fast and break things’ mantra. Facebook employees report satisfaction with the open and transparent environment and enjoy the team-oriented atmosphere.

Here are some comments from Facebook employees on Glassdoor:

  • “Facebook truly values the important things in life (to me, at least). The culture and dialog is open about everything. Whether it’s with your manager, on your team or concerning a company-wide issue.” – Facebook User Operations Associate (location, n/a)
  • “This company really cares about its mission and people. It gives you the skills and opportunities to grow.” – Facebook Employee (location, n/a)
  • “Huge impact on billions of people while working with awesome, insanely intelligent coworkers at a pleasant office. Great free food and perks. Lots of autonomy and big problems to solve. Engineer-driven culture.” – Facebook Software Engineer (Menlo Park, CA)
