Facebook named best place to work in the US

By on December 17, 2010, 3:53 PM
Facebook is the best US company to work for, according to a survey by the career website Glassdoor.com where users publish feedback on employers. The website asked its users to rate their workplaces on eight factors including work/life balance, recognition, boss competency, as well as compensation and benefits.

Glassdoor compiled the survey based on some 150,000 employee reviews submitted during 2010 on companies with more than 500 employees. Here is the top 10 list (last year, Southwest Airlines led the list while Facebook did not even make the top 50):

  • Facebook
  • Southwest Airlines
  • Bain & Company
  • General Mills
  • Edelman
  • Boston Consulting
  • SAS Institute
  • Slalom Consulting
  • Overstock.com
  • Susquehanna International Group

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was chosen as Time Magazine's Person of the Year earlier this week. The above video shows Time managing editor Rick Stengel interviewing Zuckerberg about how Facebook shaped the world in 2010, the changing definition of friendship, privacy, the future of news, WikiLeaks, as well as the plan to donate most of his wealth to charity.

Of course they are making money hand over fist right now. Every major company while it has massive growth has been a great place to work, especially the tech companies (Apple, Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, etc.) Once they have saturated the market and competitors start closing in then things tend to change. I stil don't see why anyone would want to use Facebook (especially given there lack of security and privacy) in the first place, but to each his/her own choice.

Well I would be happy too if I had employee stock options in Facebook.

Have you seen the pictures Time got of their server farms? Beautiful work, and makes me wish I had money to revamp some things at work.
