Twitter is the Best Tech Firm to Work For in 2014

Glassdoor released its annual Emplyees’ Choice Awards which ranked the 50 top companies which offered the best job satisfaction. Twitter wound up on top among the tech firms, after Facebook had occupied the #1 slot for the past three years. 

Meanwhile, Apple slid a notch down from its previous position to #16. Facebook didn’t even make it to the #2 position. It slid all the way down to #3 with LinkedIn at #2. Out of the 50 companies, 22 were high tech firms. When seen from the angle of all the firms taken together, Twitter came out #2 though. And Facebook and Apple were at #5 and #35 respectively. 

Both Facebook and Google paid hefty sums of money to the expert engineers they employed. They were thus in the top ten rankings. Meanwhile, Google held the same position it did last year at #6. On the other hand Microsoft remained outside the scope of the list. 

The Employees’ Choice Awards is calculated after taking the opinions of employees of various top firms based on qualitative and quantitative factors. Pay, perks, engagement in work and various other markers of career productivity were assembled to get the results which appeared in the form of the top 50 companies whose employees were the happiest.
