Facebook has risen to the top spot among tech companies on the annual Glassdoor Best Places to Work U.S. rankings.

Glassdoor compiles compensation data, reviews and ratings by employees about the companies where they work. It makes money through paid job listings, recruiting and employer branding services.

Last year’s top-ranked tech venture, Airbnb, plummeted 34 spots in Glassdoor Best Places to Work 2017.

According to Glassdoor Community Expert, Scott Dobroski, that was largely due to written reviews from employees who said there has been an increasing amount of bureaucracy and decreasing amount of transparency from senior leaders in the company as it has grown.

On the other hand, he said Facebook made the list for the seventh time because employees raved about its compensation and benefits, and perks like free meals or transportation.

When it comes to Facebook’s areas for improvement, Glassdoor data suggests the company doesn’t afford all of its surveyed employees the best in work-life balance. On a scale from one to five, they rated it a 3.8 compared to a 4.1 rating for Google in the category of work-life balance.

Overall, twenty tech companies made the list. Here they are:

  1. Facebook (#2, 4.5)
  2. Google (#4, 4.4)
  3. World Wide Technology (#5, 4.4)
  4. Fast Enterprises (#6, 4.4)
