Infographic: Google overtakes Facebook in employee satisfaction
Google employees are more satisfied with their workplace than Facebook employees, but only by a slim margin. Here's why.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to work at Facebook or Google?
Lucky for you,
from Glassdoor offers some valuable insight. Employees from both
companies weighed in on what they like most and least about their
workplaces and, for the first time in four years, employees at Google
said they are more satisfied than those at Facebook.
On a five-point scale, with five being very satisfied and one being very
dissatisfied, employees rated Google a 3.9 and Facebook a 3.7. The
workforce also likes its CEO a little more than Facebook employees do
theirs—Larry Page received a 94 percent approval rating and Mark
claimed a 92.
