Apple and Google have once again made Glassdoor’s list of the 100 best places to work – the only two companies to do so in every one of the 11 years the employee-driven rankings have been collated.
They are, however, ranked very differently this year …
Google is ranked at #8, while Apple is down in 71st place – though up from last year’s #84.
Consulting firm Bain & Company took the number one slot, scoring 4.6 out of 5. Glassdoor cited a typical employee review.
Bain really lives and breathes its values. I feel both challenged yet supported every single day, and truly feel that I am making an impact. I have pivoted multiple times within Bain and I can 100% say that Bain supports people to build their own individualized career journey.
Apple’s featured review was from an Apple Store Genius.
Fast-paced, goal-oriented environment that makes personal development and team collaboration incredibly easy to cultivate.

The top scores are all within a relatively narrow range, with Apple’s 4.3 rating not that far behind the winning 4.6 score.
The Glassdoor rankings are compiled by taking the scores given by a total of 45M employee reviews, then factoring in things like employment type and some secret sauce based around ‘the quantity, quality, and consistency of reviews.’
Facebook was last year’s winner – perhaps no surprise that it dropped six places this year given the hit it has taken to its reputation – while Apple’s big slide was last year, when it dropped 48 places.
