Facebook no longer tops Glassdoor's list of best places to work.

Bain & Company is one of the largest management consultancy firms, headquartered in Boston. Google also fell in the ranks compared to previous year, although it only dropped three spots compared to Facebook's six, now coming in at number eight.

One Googler in NY notes that the company's growing pains include "bureaucracy, slow to respond to market threats, bloated teams, cross-divisional tension, though nothing remotely approaching Microsoft's internal tension".

The job and recruiting site just released its annual Employees' Choice Awards, ranking the best places to work in 2019 among companies with at least 1,000 employees, based on voluntary and anonymous feedback from those workers.

Employee satisfaction at Facebook has taken a big hit in the past year, according to new research from Glassdoor. Ranked No. 1 a year ago, the social network is now the seventh best place to work, according to Glassdoor.

Glassdoor said that it then uses its proprietary algorithm, factoring in the employer's rating based on "the quantity, quality and consistency of reviews during the eligibility timeframe". And even if companies launch internal campaigns to get employees to fill out reviews, he says that won't stop the people who aren't happy from complaining.

Search giant Google came in eighth place in 2018, following a stronger performance the year prior (fifth).

Technology and health care were the sectors with the most companies in the top 100 on the list, while San Francisco and New York City were home to the most top 100 company headquarters.

Google has also made headlines this year, after employees began to speak out against company policies.

If your 2019 resolutions include getting a new job, you'll want to consider companies where the employees themselves are happy overall. "Bain fosters a really supportive and fun work environment", according to one associate there.

Google's overall rating fell from 4.6 to 4.4 over the year, with it too facing a year of unrest among employees, including worker protests over its work on the Pentagon's AI Project Maven and the global walkout over its handling of sexual harassment by top executives. There were seven Seattle-area tech companies on the list previous year.

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