Glassdoor's best places to work

To find the winners of its Employees' Choice Awards, including the best places to work, Glassdoor scans its database of company reviews and ratings from current and former employees. The 2017 Employees' Choice Awards rely exclusively on company reviews shared by employees based in the United Kingdom between 1st November 2016 and 22nd October 2017.

While Facebook has become the best place to work in America, Cupertino-based tech giant Apple tumbled to number 84 from 36th position a year ago, and Shell ranks at number 95, Glassdoor's 2018 list of best places to work reveals.

We are all aware of the fact that Apple has always remained an extremely high rated and one of the most favourite employer, with an average of 4.3 out of 5 rating, when Glassdoor prepared the list of a rating that rose up minutely by only a 0.1 in comparison to the previous year.

Three companies have found themselves on the list repeatedly for their great work-places since the list was created almost a decade ago: Google, the world's most popular search giant, Apple, and Bain and Company, a consulting firm.


"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", said Robert Hohman, CEO and co-founder of Glassdoor.

When it comes to "cons" for working at Apple, several employees who anonymously reviewed the company on Glassdoor said the iPhone maker is "strapped for resources" and "offers a poor work-life balance". Lunch isn't free, although dinner is.

SAP is at 11th spot, Salesforce at 15th, LinkedIn at 21th, Adobe at 31th, Microsoft at 39th and SpaceX is at 50th place in Glassdoor's listing.
