• Facebook is now the most desirable place to work, according to Glassdoor.
• Employees cited the tech giant’s impact, culture, perks, and CEO Mark Zuckerberg as huge draws.
• Last year, Business Insider visited the company’s Facebook office to get a sense of what it’s really like to work there.
Employees across the US have spoken, and Facebook just took the top spot in Glassdoor’s annual rankings of the most desirable places to work.
To see what all the fuss is about, Business Insider visited Facebook‘s Manhattan office last year … and let’s just say, we get it.
Here’s what we saw and learned during our tour:
We arrived at Facebook’s Greenwich Village office on a mild Friday afternoon last November. Once we checked in, we were greeted by engineering director Jeff Reynar and corporate communications manager Jamil Walker.
The first thing that jumped out at us on the tour was this physical embodiment of a Facebook “wall.” Reynar told us New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio and New Jersey Senator Cory Booker stopped by to sign it. “What’s kind of fun about this is that there’s a wall at most of our offices,” Reynar told Business Insider. “It’s kind of temporary. At some point, we’ll probably do some kind of construction and this will go away and we’ll start a fresh one with new signatures.”
Facebook — which has a market cap of $501 billion as of December 2017 — employs almost 23,165 people. About 1,000 of them work in the Frank Gehry-designed Manhattan location, which also houses members of the company’s Instagram team. Facebook occupies four floors of the building, which was once a Wanamaker’s department store.
