With the one-year anniversary of Facebook’s initial public offering coming up Saturday, social jobs and career community Glassdoor looked at the 12 months before and after the IPO and found that the company rating for Facebook and approval rating for Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg have risen, as have salaries for software engineers, but the social network’s senior management rating has taken a hit.
Facebook Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is No. 1 — at least according to Glassdoor, as the social jobs and career community released its list of the 50 highest-rated CEOs, as voted on by employees, and the leader of the social network led the pack.
Facebook finished second behind Google on another list, but at least the social network is making up ground on this one: According to social jobs and career community Glassdoor, Facebook was No. 2 on a list of 15 tech companies in terms of average base salary for software engineers, trailing only Google.
Maybe the relationship between Facebook and online jobs and career community Glassdoor isn’t as cozy as it seems: The social network was left off Glassdoor’s list of the “Top 25 Companies for Work-Life Balance” list, after finishing third on its earlier list of the 50 best places to work.
Glassdoor is a great way to get the inside scoop on a company before you send in a job application. Job seekers can compare salaries and read anonymous reviews from employees to get a better sense of what it’s really like to work at a certain place. But now that Glassdoor has integrated with Facebook, users can see which friends are on Glassdoor, taking away the sense of anonymity.
With Facebook’s initial public offering growing closer by the day, information about the company is being sought from every possible angle, and online jobs and career community Glassdoor went straight to the most knowledgeable sources of all: Facebook employees.
Where would you rather work: Facebook, or Google? Data from online jobs and career community Glassdoor heavily favors the latter.
Online jobs and career community Glassdoor finally added Facebook to its arsenal with Inside Connections, but what took so long?
Facebook was the top tech company on the 50 best places to work for 2012 list from Glassdoor, but it slipped from first to third on the overall list.
