Survey Finds Facebook Best Company To Work For

According to a survey by a career website published on Wednesday, Facebook is the best large U.S. company to work for.

The social network company placed ahead of Southwest Airlines and management consultants firm Bain & Company on the list compiled by Glassdoor, which is an online site where users publish feedback on employers.

Robert Bohman, Glassdoor's chief executive, said that employees seemed most unhappy when there is poor communication in a company, while the most highly rated companies have "a very solid and distinct company culture."

Glassdoor asked users to rate the places they work on factors like pay and boss competency.

General Mills placed fourth on the list, and public relations firm Edelman was in fifth place.

Rounding out the top ten were Boston Consulting, SAS Institute, Slalom Consulting, Overstock.com and Susquehanna International Group.

Glassdoor said it compiled the survey based on about 150,000 employee reviews submitted during 2010 on companies with over 500 employees.
