Facebook (FB) may have reclaimed the No. 1 spot on Glassdoor's "100 Best Places to Work in the U.S." this year, but Apple (AAPL) didn't fare quite as well.

Global management consulting firm Bain & Company is the second best place to work, followed by Boston Consulting Group, In-N-Out Burger and Google. Of 6,600 reviews, the company has a whopping 4.4-star rating, with 92% recommending the company to a friend, and a 97% CEO approval for Bill McDermott, making him the highest-rated CEO of 2017. The 2017 Employees' Choice Awards rely exclusively on company reviews shared by employees based in the United Kingdom between November 1, 2016 and October 22, 2017.

Common complaints among current and former Apple employees on Glassdoor paint a picture of a company that is somehow "strapped for resources" despite having more money than any firm in history, internal politics that can make advancement hard, and heavy pressure to "deliver at a high standard with quick turnaround".

"We can't thank our employees enough for sharing their reviews of Academy on Glassdoor", said Academy Mortgage Chief Executive Officer Adam Kessler. "We're committed to attracting the best talent from inside and outside the industry - this allows us to deliver outstanding results to our customers".

According to Glassdoor, the ranking system is based on "a proprietary awards algorithm", which is created to calculate the "quantity, quality, and consistency of company reviews submitted by employees between November 1, 2016, and October 22, 2017". To be considered for the large category, a company must have at least 1,000 or more employees and have received at least 75 ratings across eight workplace attributes. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoor's proprietary algorithm, and takes into account the quantity, quality, and consistency of reviews.
