Facebook Tops Glassdoor List For Best Workplaces

08 December 2017

Much to its gains, Facebook (FB) may have redeemed itself with the No. 1 spot on Glassdoor's "100 Best Places to Work in the U.S." this year, but Apple (AAPL) was lucked out.

Common complaints among current and former Apple employees on Glassdoor paint a picture of a company that is somehow "strapped for resources" despite having more money than any firm in history, internal politics that can make advancement hard, and heavy pressure to "deliver at a high standard with quick turnaround". "This is a testament to our unwavering commitment to create a positive, stimulating, and fun work environment that our employees love", said FieldEdge Co-CEO, Rameez Ansari. "As we look to continue to lead our industry, there are tremendous opportunities for people in all areas of our company to grow professionally, do meaningful work and impact our customers".

XPO has been recognized by Forbes magazine as one of America's Best Employers for 2017 and was recently named one of the best places to work in Italy by the independent research institute Statista, as published by the Italian magazine Panorama.

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".

Another review read that the employee was highly satisfied working at Facebook, and praised fellow colleagues for being intelligent, energized, and passionate about the work they do.
