Interns rated Facebook as the best company to intern with, according to the latest report from social jobs and career community Glassdoor, which added that the social network debuted on its list at No. 1, dethroning two-time leader Google.
Why Did Facebook Finish Fifth On Glassdoor’s 50 Best Places To Work In 2014 After Topping The 2013 List?
The good news for Facebook is that it finished at No. 5 on the list of the 50 Best Places to Work in 2014, compiled by social jobs and career community Glassdoor based on input from anonymous employees at the respective companies. The bad news for Facebook is that it fell to No. 5 from No. 1 on the 2013 list.
Facebook came in at No. 9 on the 2013 list of the 25 highest-paying companies for software engineers from social jobs and career community Glassdoor, after placing second on Glassdoor’s 2012 list, which included only tech companies.
Facebook employees have told social jobs and career community Glassdoor that they were very satisfied working at the company and with the leadership of Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, although the social network fell short in terms of work-life balance, but what about the process of interviewing for jobs at Facebook?
Facebook usually fares well when social jobs and career community Glassdoor compiles its lists of the best places to work, based on anonymous employee feedback, but when Glassdoor’s third annual Top 25 Companies for Work-Life Balance report was released Friday morning, the social network was nowhere to be found. Why? Mostly due to the long hours put in by employees.
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.
