Facebook finished atop the Best Places to Work in 2018 list from Glassdoor’s 10th anniversary Employees’ Choice Awards.

Facebook finished second overall on the 2017 list, and the social network topped the list of tech companies.

The only other social network to crack the top 100 was LinkedIn, at No. 21, down sharply from No. 8 on Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work in 2017 list.

  1. Facebook
  2. Bain & Co.
  3. Boston Consulting Group
  4. In-N-Out Burger
  5. Google
  6. Lululemon
  7. HubSpot
  8. World Wide Technology
  9. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
  10. Ultimate Software

The job and recruiting site shared three employee reviews of Facebook.

A software engineer based at the social network’s headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif., wrote: “Opportunity to build a product that billions of people use around the world. Great perks (health benefits, food, environment, transport, bonuses). Great culture focused on connecting the world.”

A data scientist, also based in Menlo Park, wrote: “It’s great working here. There’s nowhere else I’d rather be. You are working with very smart people who are energized and believe in the work they are doing. You will be rewarded for doing well and for the company doing well. You are empowered and encouraged to wield influence and ship products that can literally affect billions of people, no matter what level you are at.”

And an engineering manager in the company’s New York office wrote: “Surrounded by great people. Really interesting work. Amazing amenities. Good values woven into the fabric of the company. Transparent leaders who focus on the right stuff continually.”

The one LinkedIn review, from a senior technical program manager based out of the professional network’s headquarters in Sunnyvale, Calif., read: “Great perks (free food, free coffee bar rivals Starbucks, free juice bar, free ice cream bar, just free bars … I can go on), great energy in the company to get things done (motivated by a sense of how much of a difference the products make in the lives of people in earning their livelihood or taking it to the next level). Feel proud to work here.”

Glassdoor co-founder and CEO Robert Hohman said in a release announcing the results: “We know today’s job seekers are more informed than ever about where they go to work, researching everything from company culture to career opportunities to pay philosophy and more. To help people find companies that stand out from the pack, the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards recognize employers that are truly Best Places to Work because they’re determined by those who really know best—the employees. Employers where employees love to work continue to prove that they have a recruiting and business performance advantage. We’re proud to celebrate the 2018 winners as we mark our 10th anniversary of the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards.”
