Facebook no longer among best places to work


After ranking 7th in 2011

Company review site Glassdoor has published a list of 25 companies that provide their employees with good balance of work and life and Facebook is no longer on the list after ranking quite highly in 2011.

Glasdoor offers an inside look into companies, as it has employee generated content that provides insight into anonymous salaries, company reviews, and such. The list is based on 385,000 company reviews given by employees and has focused on finding optimum balance between work and personal life, all related perks included.

Facebook has been making the headlines for mostly wrong reasons and it seems to be turning into the Titanic scenario – one moment they’re the king of the world, the next one they have executives jumping the seemingly sinking ship. Now, it lost the label of a great place to work in too, as Glasdoor complained about long hours in the company. Well, what if they simply hung out on Facebook too much?

Interestingly enough, although the list doesn’t target tech companies, as much as 12 such companies made the list. Among the names you’ll find the likes of Agilent, CareerBuilder, LinkedIn, Orbitz, Novell, etc. but you can check the list out yourself here, via Cnet.
