FacebookHQ650

Facebook and Google are doing battle, not only for users and ad impressions, but for employee happiness. Glassdoor released its annual list of the top 25 companies, in terms of how highly employees rated pay and benefits, with Facebook coming in third overall behind Google and Costco.

Of the 25 companies on Glassdoor’s list, 12 are tech companies — more than any other industry. The parent companies of two Facebook Strategic Preferred Marketing Developers — Adobe and Salesforce — are also on the list, at No. 4 and No. 9, respectively.

Glassdoor Senior Vice President of People, Allyson Willoughby, explained to Inside Facebook what sets Facebook apart from the others:

This report shows that employees at Facebook, No. 3 on the list overall and No. 2 tech company, are very satisfied with their compensation & benefits packages. Specifically, Facebook employees report enjoying high salary, excellent healthcare, and fantastic perks like free food, a beautiful Menlo Park campus, free massages, on-site chiropractic care, stock options and even the famous vending machines that dispense computer accessories, among many, many other fringe benefits.

Here are some comments from anonymous Facebook employees about the company:

“Excellent benefits and employee perks – onsite healthcare, chiropractor, acupuncture, gym and many others I haven’t tried out yet.” – Facebook Program Manager (Menlo Park, CA)

“Great pay, stocks and bonuses. Amazing perks! Lots of food choices, great campus, regular team happy hours with great food, and the list goes on and on.” – Facebook Software Engineer (Palo Alto, CA)

In terms of rating, the difference between Google and Facebook is infinitesimal. Google, whose perks are legendary, was the highest-rated company on Glassdoor with an average rating of 4.4 out of 5. Facebook came in third at 4.3.
