Online jobs and career community Glassdoor has just unveiled its fifth annual Employees’ Choice Awards, which is a list of the 50 best places to work in the coming year.

Unlike most workplace-related awards, which require companies to self nominate, the Employees’ Choice Awards rely solely on the input of employees who anonymously provide feedback through a survey. The survey goes only to employees in the U.S., but many of the companies have workers around the world.

Facebook-careerFacebook was ranked as the top employer for a second time, with an overall company rating of 4.7 out of a possible 5. The social networking site received the highest rating in the 2011 Employees’ Choice Awards and was among the top three in 2012–and it’s no surprise why employees are so satisfied.

The company offers great perks and benefits that help employees balance their work with their personal lives, including paid vacation days, free food and transportation, $4,000 in cash for new parents, dry cleaning, day care reimbursement, and photo processing. But employees also commented favorably about the opportunity to impact a billion people, the company’s continued commitment to its hacker culture, and trust in their chief executive Mark Zuckerberg.

Global management consulting firm McKinsey & Co. is second on the list, with a 4.5 company rating. With a network of about 9,000 consultants in 101 locations all over the world, McKinsey prides itself on hiring employees with “leademckinsey-careerrship potential, integrity, a sharp analytical mind, creativity, and the ability to work with people at all levels in an organization,” the website says. In addition, the company strives to provide its staff with unrivaled growth opportunities.

“McKinsey continues to be one of the highest rated employers for the past five years,” Zupan says. “Employees frequently comment on the impact they have on organizations worldwide, the opportunity to connect with top executives and the access to a valuable network of global colleagues–current and alumni.” Click Here for MCKinsey Career
