In the seventh iteration of employer-review site Glassdoor's Best Place to Work list, Google finally takes the top spot.

According to Glassdoor, it's Google's benefits, salary, and overall treatment of employees that puts it a notch above the rest. With thousands of reviews from both current and former employees, Google notched a 4.5 out of 5 rating. The company was #8 on the list last year,

The rest of the top 10 is devoid of other big-name tech companies, including the likes of Bain & Company, Nestle, Boston Consulting Group, Chevron, In-N-Out Burger, and the Mayo Clinic.

You have to go all the way down to #13 to find Facebook.

Many high-profile tech companies fell significantly in the past year. LinkedIn, which held the #3 spot last year, holds this year's 23rd spot. Twitter, which was last year's #2 company to work for, doesn't even crack the top 50 this year.

Apple seems to be the exception, rising to #22 from #35 a year ago.

Thinking about landing a job at Google, since it's apparently such a wonderful place to work? You might want to reconsider. You probably not prepared to interview at Google.
