Although Google has ranked high on Glassdoor’s list of top 50 best places to work, this is the tech company’s first time in the top spot. Here’s what one employee had to say about Google:

Very smart people, outstanding benefits and perks, excellent salaries, and lots of opportunity to do what you love. Everything you’ve heard about working for Google is true.

According to Forbes, Google has made significant strides to make it a great place to work.

“Google stepped up their game in support of work-life balance and families,” said [Glassdoor CEO Robert] Hohman. “Increased maternity leave, increased paternity leave, reworked on-site day care – they’ve really made an effort to allow people to have strong families as well as give their best to Google. That came through loud and clear and seems to be what pushed them over the edge this year.”
