Microsoft has come in at No. 5 this year on the Great Place to Work Institute’s annual list of best global companies to work for.
Great Place to Work Institute is a consulting firm that also produces Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” list
That ranking is down from the No. 1 spot that Microsoft held on the list last year.
Coming in at No. 1 this year was Cary, N.C.-based business software company SAS Institute.
The companies were chosen based partly on the institute’s studies of employee surveys and company policies and practices.
