Glassdoor: Google dethrones Twitter as the best tech company to work for in the U.S., also tops new U.K. list

December 9, 2014 8:59 PM


Career website Glassdoor today released its seventh annual Employees’ Choice Awards, a list of the 50 best companies to work for in the coming year. Google was elected the number one tech company to work for in 2015, displacing Twitter.

In the last two years, Google placed sixth, and we were surprised it wasn’t higher, so this year’s list makes sense in that regard. Yet it’s worth noting that Google hasn’t just taken the top tech company spot: It is the top company overall.

Last year, Twitter displaced Facebook, which held the top tech company crown for three years straight (2011, 2012, and 2013). This year, Twitter isn’t even on the list.

In previous years, many tech companies placed rather close to the number one spot. This year, F5 Networks was the only other tech firm that managed to break the top 10.

In fact, there were just 14 tech companies in the top 50 this year. That’s down from 22 tech companies last year.

Here are the tech companies on this year’s U.S. list (ratings are based on a five-point scale, from 1.0 as very dissatisfied to 5.0 as very satisfied):

  • Google (#1, 4.5 rating)
  • F5 Networks (#4, 4.3 rating)
  • Facebook (#13, 4.1 rating)
  • Qualcomm (#14, 4.1 rating)
  • Adobe (#18, 4.1 rating)
  • MathWorks (#19, 4.1 rating)
  • Apple (#22, 4.0 rating)
  • LinkedIn (#23, 4.0 rating)
  • Zillow (#33, 3.9 rating)
  • Mindboy (#34, 3.9 rating)
  • Nvidia (#36, 3.9 rating)
  • Orbitz Worldwide (#42, 3.9 rating)
  • Interactive Intelligence (#44, 3.9 rating)
