Glassdoor have revealed their annual Employee’s Choice Awards for the best companies to work for in the UK.
The anonymous employee reviews rank their workplace on perks, benefits, career opportunities, work-life balance and values.
Reviewers also take into consideration salary, bonuses and overall company culture.
Last year, Expedia topped the list, but in 2018, the companies ranking at the top of Glassdoor’s list include Google, Facebook and Salesforce.
Benefits of working for Google and Facebook include free food, whilst Salesforce gives all employees the opportunity to take up to a week off to volunteer.
In second place was water company Anglian Water, followed by housing association Bromford.
Peter Simpson, chief executive of Anglian Water, said the company focussed on encouraging employee wellbeing and “creating a culture driven by happier, healthier and safer staff”.
“Looking after our employees is at the heart of delivering great customer service, alongside the enthusiasm and dedication our staff have for their jobs,” he said.
Last year’s winner Expedia has dropped out of the top ten to 14th position.
