Airbnb may not be popular with hotel chains or municipal planning departments, but its workers love it.

Described by one employee as “one of the most collaborative, innovative and exciting places to work,” Airbnb has earned itself the top spot on Glassdoor’s annual list of the 50 best places to work.

Short for “Air Bed and Breakfast,” Airbnb is a rapidly growing site for people to list, find and rent lodging.

Glassdoor’s rankings are based on reviews shared on its site by company employees over the past year. To be eligible for Glassdoor’s list, a company had to receive at least 75 reviews.

“Everyone wants a job and company they love,” said Glassdoor co-founder and CEO Robert Hohman. The best places to work list “allows us to honor employers that stand out for their efforts in providing an enjoyable work environment and culture.”

The companies who made the cut were praised by workers for providing good pay, awesome employee perks and letting workers know that they are valued.

The tech industry had a strong showing in Glassdoor’s rankings, earning seven of the top 11 spots.

According to Glassdoor, these are the top 10 places to work in the United States:

  1. Airbnb
  2. Bain & Co.
  3. Guidewire
  4. HubSpot
  5. Facebook
  6. LinkedIn
  7. Boston Consulting Group
  8. Google
  9. Nestle Purina PetCare
  10. Zillow
