Employer review site Glassdoor has released its list of the 25 best places to work in Canada, for businesses with 1,000 employees or more. Companies to be considered have to have at least 1,000 employees during this time frame and at least 30 ratings from United Kingdom based staff. Unlike many awards related to the workplace, Glassdoor actually collate input from employees who voluntarily provide anonymous feedback on aspects about their job, work environment, and employer over the past year.

Glassdoor said that it then uses its proprietary algorithm, factoring in the employer's rating based on "the quantity, quality and consistency of reviews during the eligibility timeframe". Among the large corporations highly rated by their employees, Bain & Company, Zoom Video Communications, and In-N-out Burger cinched the top three spots with close to ideal ratings.

The tech company employees, once in love with free food, flexible works hours and resort like offices, have also started looking at how much time they are giving to their office and for what. There were seven Seattle-area tech companies on the list past year. An In-N-Out database administrator said, "They offer great training and have a great support structure", while a software engineer at Procore reported opportunities for career growth. It rose a number of spots from last year's ranking of 21.

The drop in Facebook's ranking comes after a rocky year for the company. The company has topped the list three out of 11 years. Google was 8th while Salesforce came 11th.

Blood test to detect cancer within just 10 minutes developed by scientists
And because the same changes occur in all cancerous cells, the test should work on all cancer types, the team believes. Scientists have developed a universal cancer test that can detect traces of the disease in a patient's bloodstream.

Google has also made headlines this year, after employees began to speak out against company policies. Google 9. lululemon 10. Employees have also protested the handling of sexual misconduct claims and a controversial plan to restart a censored version of the search engine in China.

A Facebook employee at the company's Menlo Park headquarters warned Glassdoor visitors not to believe all the negative press. In the first quarter of 2018, Facebook's employee satisfaction rating was at 4.6. These controversies started with the Cambridge Analytica revelations early this year but since then nearly every month there was something new. But Amazon doesn't find a space in the Top 100, which is rather surprising for a company that is one of the biggest in the history in terms of market capitalisation.

Employee reviews cited the company's culture and community events as pluses.
