Facebook Is No Longer the Best Place to Work in the US; Apple Gains GroundAccording to the leading job site Glassdoor’s yearly”100 Best Places to Work in the US” list that came out on Wednesday, Boston-based management consulting firm Bain & Co. was ranked No 1.

Facebook is now ranked No 7 – scoring 4.5 from a perfect 5.

Apple transferred from No 84 to 71 with a score of 4.3. Microsoft moved up from No 39 to 34 as its score dropped from 4.4 to 4.3.

Microsoft-owned LinkedIn, however, is at first place with a score of 4.5, read the information about the Glassdoor site.

Even though Facebook was the best place to work in America last year, Cupertino-based technology giant Apple had tumbled to number 84 in 2017 from its 36th position in 2016.

Amazon didn’t even make it to the record, with an award rating of 4.1, just beyond the top 100.

Apple, on the other hand, moved up in the position, from No. 84 to 71, although it maintained the same rating of 4.3. Microsoft moved up in position from No. 39 to 34 on the record although their award score fell from 4.4 to 4.3. Google was 8th while Salesforce came 11th.

The Top-100 record by Glassdoor is for big organisations or those with at least 1,000 employees.

The Glassdoor record came in a time when media reports said several Facebook workers are searching for better opportunities as scrutiny of the organization’s conduct rises following several instances of data leak and since its stock price take a beating.

According to a CNBC report earlier this week, Facebook workers are contacting former colleagues to search for jobs outside the company.

According to a report from the Wall Street Journal last month citing an internal survey at Facebook, just over half of Facebook workers (52 per cent) said they had been optimistic about the future of their social media platform – down by 32 percent last year.

Only 53 percent of Facebook workers said the company was producing the world better, which is 19 percent lower compared to last year.

According to the report, Facebook’s”difficult year has been taking a toll on worker morale, with many important measures of internal belief taking a sharp turn for the worse over the last year”.

Facebook investors have increased pressure on Chairman and CEO Mark Zuckerberg to resign following a New York Times investigation suggested that the social media hired a Republican-owned governmental consulting and PR firm that”dug up dirt on its rivals”.
