Online career site Glassdoor is out with its Top 50 Best Places to Work list, its annual compilation based entirely on employee feedback.
Among the findings this year:
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer ranked as most improved tech CEO, with his approval rating going up from 29 percent last year to 46 percent this year. (That said, 46 percent approval makes Ballmer the third-lowest ranked tech company CEO on this list. The two lowest were Netflix’s Reed Hastings with 42 percent and Xerox’s Ursula Burns with 21 percent.)
Twenty tech companies made the Top 50 list, with Facebook coming in No. 1 overall. But no Seattle-area tech companies made the top 50. Other types of locally based companies did, though, including REI at No. 21, Slalom Consulting at No. 25, Costco at No. 46, and and Starbucks at No. 50.
