Facebook named the best place to work by U.S. employees

Facebook (FB) may have reclaimed the No. 1 spot on Glassdoor's "100 Best Places to Work in the U.S." this year, but Apple (AAPL) didn't fare quite as well.

This marks the eighth time that Facebook has featured in the top 10 of the list, taking the top spot a total of three times over the course of the 10-year period that the Glassdoor Employees Choice Awards has run.

There's one fast-food chain that rises above nearly every other company in the U.S. when it comes to how much employees love their jobs.

The Employee Choice Awards are run across the US, Canada, France, UK and Germany, with only two companies this year featuring across all five - Microsoft and SAP.

Jobless claims show resilient U.S. job market
Applications for jobless benefits below the 300,000 are considered consistent with a steady job market. According to a Reuters survey of economists, nonfarm payrolls may increase by 200,000 in November.

Three companies have found themselves on the list repeatedly for their great work-places since the list was created almost a decade ago: Google, the world's most popular search giant, Apple, and Bain and Company, a consulting firm. "As we look to continue to lead our industry, there are tremendous opportunities for people in all areas of our company to grow professionally, do meaningful work and impact our customers".

Another employee, working at Facebook headquarters in California, stated that Facebook offered employees the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to contribute towards building a product that is used by billions across the globe, and offers fantastic perks in addition.

When employees submit reviews about their employer on Glassdoor, they are asked to discuss the pros and cons of working for that employer.

The review added that Facebook took care to reward employees who performed particularly well, and in turn helped the company to perform well.
