Facebook and Alphabet’s Google have been regarded as the world’s most ideal workplaces, which can provide countless employee benefits, but now their aura is gradually fading, one after another It fell out of the top ten of the annual “Best Employer” list in the United States.

On Tuesday, local professional review website Glassdoor released the annual ranking of the “Best Employer Rankings” in the United States. HubSpot, a cloud computing software company, topped the list. DocuSign, an electronic signature service provider for technology companies, and Ultimate Software, a human resources management solutions company, ranked third eighth.
Glassdoor is a workplace community in the United States that does corporate reviews and job search. Employees can anonymously comment on the company’s salary, workplace environment, interview questions and other information on the website. The Best Places to work-Employees’ choice released by it is mainly based on employee reviews, starting in 2009.
In the past 10 years, Facebook has been named the “Best Employer Ranking” by Glassdoor three times, and this year ranked 23rd. This is Facebook’s lowest ranking since it first topped the list in 2011. It is reported that Facebook ranked seventh on the list last year.
Google was named the “Best Employer Ranking” in 2015 and has been in the top 10 for the past 8 years. But this year Google ranked 11th on the Glassdoor list. For a time, Apple Inc. entered the top 25 consecutively, and this year also performed poorly, ranking 84th in the top of the “Best Employer List”. Amazon has never been known for its positive internal welfare and culture, and this year has not been on the list for the 12th consecutive year.
Fortunately, Microsoft is one of the large technology companies with a greatly improved ranking, and it has risen from 34th a year ago to 21st on the list.
This annual list is Glassdoor’s ranking of related companies based on employee evaluations of compensation, benefits, culture, and senior management. Many large tech companies, including Facebook and Google, have been criticized this year for a range of issues, and employees have even publicly opposed executive decisions in some cases.
At Google, employees have protested against the company on a number of issues, including the company’s “intimidation” strategy against employee organizers. According to a report in February, Google’s internal employee survey showed that the number of employees encouraged by CEO Sundar Pichai has decreased compared to a year ago. The survey also found that the number of employees who believe Google management can successfully lead the company into the future is also declining.
Like Google, Facebook offers employees a variety of benefits including free meals, corporate transportation and laundry services. Even so, Facebook employees have internally put pressure on leadership on some policy issues.
