While Facebook still managed to retain its positioning in the top 10 best companies to work for in 2019 list outed by Glassdoor, check here who the other ones are that beat the Mark Zuckerberg led social network giant. Companies are required to have at least 1,000 employees and 75 company reviews on Glassdoor, which uses an algorithm to calculate the rankings that assesses the quantity, quality and consistency of Glassdoor-approved company reviews shared by employees between October 23, 2017 and October 21, 2018. The top tech company in the list is little-known Zoom Video Communications at No 2. Facebook ranked No. 1 for five of the past eight years. As the world gets sceptical about the impact of technology - WhatsApp fuelling misinformation in countries like India - the employees in companies like Facebook, Google, Amazon and Twitter have also started considering whether the impact they are making in the world is positive or not.

"In today's tight labour market, job seekers are in the driver's seat when it comes to deciding where to work and they want to know the inner workings of a company before accepting a new job", said Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor Chief Economist. Employees on the site praised Facebook for its compensation and benefits, giving it a 4.6 rating out of 5, according to Glassdoor.

Bain & Company, Google and Apple are the only three companies to have made the list every year. Of late, Google employees have reportedly protested against the company over various issues, including issues related to sexual harassment at work, or the company's controversial projects such Dragonfly that is supposedly a censored version of Google search engine for China. One review cited the company's support of employee goals as a perk of employment.

Anglian Water came in at number 1 for the first time with a rating of 4.5. The highest among them was Paylocity, which was ranked 20th, jumping up from 29th place previous year.

Employee reviews cited the company's culture and community events as pluses.
