Tech giant Google has been named No. 1 in the United Kingdom for the second time, following up its top placing in 2015, and has made the United Kingdom list for four consecutive years.

A Boston-based company is one of the best places to work, according to a new study. "What's more", he says "they offer a company culture that their employees truly believe in".

Online career hub GlassDoor released its rankings for 2018. Facebook's rating is 4.6, for instance, while Bayada Home Health Care (No. 100) received a 4.2. The average rating of the 700,000 companies reviewed on Glassdoor is 3.3. "If you are looking for job satisfaction, reward and enjoyment, this is an ideal company to work for".

Expedia, which topped the ranking previous year, came in 14th place in the poll.

This year, the company that rounded out the top five, in addition to perennial favorites Facebook, Bain, Boston Consulting Group and Google, was In-N-Out Burgers, the restaurant chain that's been on the list five times.

Glassdoor's annual awards are based on anonymous, voluntary employee input about their workplace over the past year.

The full list of best places to work in Seattle is here, and the list for small and medium companies is here. "Employers where employees love to work continue to prove that they have a recruiting and business performance advantage". Bay Area-based establishments such as Glint, Metromile, Asana and Zuora all made the list.
