Facebook is apparently connecting with many of its own employees.
It ranked as the best tech company to work for in 2017 and came in second among U.S. companies overall, according to a new report from Glassdoor. The ninth annual list is based on employee reviews posted on the job site from Nov. 2, 2015 to Oct. 30, 2016.
Facebook took the number one spot overall in 2011 and 2013 and was number five last year. This year, management consultancy Bain and Company returned to the top spot.
It was another good year for the tech industry overall, which accounted for 20 of the top 50 companies in the United States. Apple and Google, along with Bain, are the only employers to make the list for all nine consecutive years.
The tech industry “really pioneered this whole idea of providing really fantastic benefits and offering very competitive compensation. It’s been interesting to see other companies that are outside of the space following through,” Glassdoor’s Allison Berry told Mashable.
The ranking was perhaps also a testament to the growing pains for some companies in Silicon Valley. Airbnb was voted the best in the U.S. last year, but the home rental startup dropped down to 35 overall in 2017. Its rating fell from 4.6 to 4.2.
Berry, looking at the Glassdoor reviews, pointed to employee frustrations with management and work hours. “As companies try to scale, you see less transparency. Employees are putting in longer hours and you might see less work-life balance, and employees aren’t as confident as career procession,” Berry said.
Airbnb, for its part, said the company is working on several new initiatives to further improve employee satisfaction for the coming year.
“We are constantly working to improve and expand in these areas through initiatives that foster professional development, support health and well-being, and we are expanding other benefits such as matching 401(k) contributions in 2017,” Brittany Cornejo, a public relations specialist with Airbnb, told Mashable in an email.
Here is a look at the tech companies that made Glassdoor’s list.
