Facebook didn’t fare so well in the Best Places to Work in 2019 list released earlier this month by job and recruiting site Glassdoor, but that was mild compared to the beating it took in similar rankings by Comparably, a platform where employees anonymously provide data on compensation and insights into work culture.
