We strive to make Facebook a place where everyone is able to have an impact doing what they love. Receiving this award is a testament to the culture of builders we’ve worked hard to create.”
One of reviews for the social network giant reads, “People who make a big impact are recognized and rewarded, regardless of their job title or level of experience. The company’s leadership truly believes in Facebook’s mission to make the world more open and connected. Teams are small and have a lot of autonomy, and it’s amazing to see how much of a difference a single person can make at this place.”
The second best place to work for is McKinsey & Company while Riverbed Technology, Bain & Company, and MD Anderson Cancer Center ranked third, fourth, and fifth best place to work for in 2013, respectively.
