The accolade came from Glassdoor, an online employment site that ranks employers according to reviews submitted by current and former staff of an organisation - which means the rankings are not determined by a panel, but by the people who work for any given business.
According to Glassdoor, the ranking system is based on "a proprietary awards algorithm", which is created to calculate the "quantity, quality, and consistency of company reviews submitted by employees between November 1, 2016, and October 22, 2017".
There's one fast-food chain that rises above nearly every other company in the United States when it comes to how much employees love their jobs.
Among Glassdoor's 25 Best Places to Work, Manulife was the only insurance company - and came in at ranking #21 on the list. "What we really see them appreciate most is the company's mission-driven culture, transparent leadership and the fact that their work literally impacts the lives of billions of people worldwide", Glassdoor CEO Robert Hohman said in a statement.
Common complaints among current and former Apple employees on Glassdoor paint a picture of a company that is somehow "strapped for resources" despite having more money than any firm in history, internal politics that can make advancement hard, and heavy pressure to "deliver at a high standard with quick turnaround".
"Extremely flexible with scheduling, you work with similar personalities so everyone tends to get along, you move up quickly, you genuinely feel appreciated 9 times out 10, free meal every day that you work, great pay and excellent benefits for a rewarding job!" one In-N-Out Burger employee wrote in a Glassdoor review.
SAP is at 11th spot, Salesforce at 15th, LinkedIn at 21th, Adobe at 31th, Microsoft at 39th and SpaceX is at 50th place in Glassdoor's listing.
