Facebook voted “best place to work” in 2012

PanARMENIAN.Net - Facebook employees voted their company the best place to work this year, CNET News reported.

Company review site Glassdoor annually compiles the 50 best places to work based on comments from employees in dozens of companies. This year, nearly half a million reviews were submitted that rated employers on career opportunities, salary and benefits, work and life balance, senior management, and culture and values. And, Facebook won out.

Besides Facebook, 19 other tech companies made the top 50 list. For the top 10, Riverbed Technology came in at No. 3, Google got No. 6, and National Instruments was No. 8. For the most well-known tech companies, LinkedIn came in at 14, Intel was No. 31, and Apple got No. 34.

While Google and Apple aren't in the top five, they've both made the list for the last five consecutive years -- although both have dropped places from last year, from 5 to 6 and from 10 to 34, respectively. Facebook has only made the list the last three years, but the year it debuted on the list, in 2010, it ranked No. 1. Last year, the social network fell to the third spot but has notably rebounded this year.
