The company may be tightening restrictions on free food, charging lots of money for childcare, and handing out cell phones instead of proper holiday bonuses.  But according to new findings from Glassdoor, good old Google remains one of the best places to work.

Glassdoor has collected info on more than 11,000 companies, and Google came in seventh with a rating of 4.1 (5.0 represents a perfect score).  CEO Eric Schmidt, meanwhile, received an approval rating of 88 percent.  Both of these numbers sound great, and are all the more remarkable since none of Google’s main competitors appear on Glassdoor’s list of the top 50 employers.

Really, the only businesses that WebProNews even sort of covers to make that cut were Bain & Company (at number two), Netflix (number three), and Apple (in eighteenth place).

It’s at the other end of the list that a more familiar name appears.  Glassdoor’s users judged eBay to be about the 47th worst company on the site, giving it a rating of 2.7.  eBay’s CEO, John Donahue, got an approval rating of just 20 percent.

Wags of the finger and pats on the back should be doled out accordingly.  A hat tip goes to Erick Schonfeld, too.

    They make a killing in Adsense. I still think they give out too much back to their employees though

    Google does need to be a little careful with the cutbacks that it’s been making… it’s currently seen as a fun, generous company and if they were to take things too far the perception of them could change.

    I think it reflects in their products, I far prefer Google Checkout to Paypal.

    I think eBay’s users haven’t been happy for quite some time, and when your users aren’t happy, then the employees are the first to feel any customer/user backlash. Naturally I think that eBay doesn’t score well with employees based on it’s decisions that started with Meg Whitman.

    I can think of plenty of companies that wouldn’t score well just based on my own perceptions of a company from an outsider’s perspective.

    I would have thought that Apple would have scored higher, but then again, that is my opinion as an outsider.
