Even though Facebook was the best place to work in America this past year, Cupertino-based technology giant Apple had tumbled to number 84 in 2017 from its 36th place in 2016.

Amazon did not even make it to the record, with an award score of 4.1, just beyond the top 100.

The Top-100 list by Glassdoor is for large organisations or those with 1,000 employees.

The Glassdoor list came in a time when media reports stated several Facebook workers are searching for better opportunities as scrutiny of the company’s conduct climbs after several instances of data flow and as its stock price take a beating.

According to a CNBC report earlier this week, Facebook workers are contacting former colleagues to search for jobs outside the company.

According to a report from the Wall Street Journal last month citing an internal poll at Facebook, just over half of Facebook employees (52 percent ) said they had been optimistic about the future of their social networking platform – down by 32 per cent last year.
