Facebook executives may be hitting “like” on this story. The social-media site has been named the best place to work among U.S. large employers, with the ranking based entirely on employee feedback.

The company is No. 1 on Glassdoor’s 2018 Best Places to Work list of U.S. companies with more than 1,000 workers. In the 10 years Glassdoor has been compiling this list, Facebook has made the list eight times and earned the No. 1 spot three times.

Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook chief operating officer, notes the company’s employee-friendly policies, telling Glassdoor:

“We believe that the 21st century needs 21st-century workplace policies, and that we have a responsibility to do that. Everything from maternity and paternity leave to really being there for people when times are hardest and offering bereavement leave.”

Facebook’s own CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, is out on paternity leave for all of December. Employees at his company are entitled to four months of paid parental leave.

Other noteworthy Facebook employee perks include:

  • Free meals and snacks
  • On-site health and dental centers
  • Laundry services

Silverline Systems, the No. 1 company on Glassdoor’s 2018 Best Places to Work list for small and medium U.S. employers, also offers some rare perks.

Employee benefits at Silverline, a tech company serving businesses, include:

  • Unlimited vacation
  • Flexible work options
  • Education reimbursement programs
  • Learning & development programs
