The accolade came from Glassdoor, an online employment site that ranks employers according to reviews submitted by current and former staff of an organisation - which means the rankings are not determined by a panel, but by the people who work for any given business. The 2017 Employees' Choice Awards rely exclusively on company reviews shared by employees based in the United Kingdom between 1st November 2016 and 22nd October 2017.

Apple still remains a highly rated employer - with 4.3 out of 5 rating by Glassdoor - but other tech giants like Google, World Wide Technology, Yahoo, and VMware are way ahead in the listings.

Three companies have found themselves on the list repeatedly for their great work-places since the list was created almost a decade ago: Google, the world's most popular search giant, Apple, and Bain and Company, a consulting firm. However, the so-called "cons" for working at Apple stated at a company that is "strapped for resources", offers a meager work-life balance for a fraction, internal politics that make it hard for some employees to move up the ladder, and high pressure to "deliver at a high standard with quick turnaround."Some of the other mentioned reasons were- lack of free lunch for corporate employees - a commonplace Silicon Valley perk offered by companies like Facebook and Google - and Apple's widely known "culture of secrecy".

"It's clear employees love working at Facebook".

"Office space is very sparse, bring your own tea and snacks kind of a deal. Nobody is going to pat you on the back for your work, and you're expected to advance your own career, or find the mentorship you need", one Apple employee wrote on Glassdoor.
