Facebook parent company Meta dropped 36 places on the Glassdoor Best Places to Work annual rankings. 

Down to Number 47

Meta slid down 36 places on the annual list of the 100 best companies to work compiled by Glassdoor. After placing No. 11 on the list in 2021, the Big Tech giant plummeted to No. 47 in 2022. 

Formerly called Facebook, the company has kept a spot on the list for 12 years. Its position on this year’s rankings is the lowest Meta has placed so far. Furthermore, its average rating slipped from 4.4 to 4.3.

Over the last year, Meta faced a barrage of scrutiny following a number of scandals. Politicians, observers, consumer advocates, and the public maligned it. As a result, its reputation fell even further than in previous years. 

Meta’s controversies include its roles in the January 6th storming of the US Capitol, the banning of a former US president, and a former employee’s whistleblowing testimony.

On top of that, Meta had to deal with several high-level departures over the last year. These include the global vice president of marketing at Instagram Melissa Walters and vice president of global business marketing Mark D’Arcy. Vice president of global business group Carolyn Everson and head of Messenger Stan Chudnovsky also left the group.

Meta’s employees praised the company on Glassdoor for workplace autonomy and benefits. However, many panned it for the unwanted scrutiny and a seeming lack of action from the leadership.

Best Places to Work

NVIDIA topped Glassdoor’s list of the best companies to work in. The GPU and chips maker was closely followed by HubSpot, Bain & Company, eXp Realty, and Box. 

Each firm in the Top 5 scored a 4.6 average.
