Looking for a new job? If so then you’ll definitely want to consult Glassdoor’s list of the 50 best places to work this year. While this year’s list features a lot of familiar names from previous years’ lists such as Facebook and Google, the top entry is something of a surprise: Airbnb, which didn’t crack last year’s top 50 at all.

So what is it that employees love so much about working at Airbnb? Here’s a sample of some employee reviews:

  • “Amazing culture with inspiring benefits laden work environment. Entire business is innovation driven with ethic that supports individual autonomy.”
  • “Open-minded workplace with a deep sense of humility and passion. Strong set of core value that promote a generally positive work atmosphere. Upper management is very mindful of long-term growth and development. The food program is unrivaled and very well balanced. Every meal is made in-house with a variety of options (ie vegetarian, gluten-free, etc). Difference is truly embraced and celebrated here.”
  • “I’m a software engineer that previously worked at Facebook. I can definitely say that the work here is more exciting than my previous company. Airbnb is a much smaller company and each engineer plays a large role in the impact of the company. I enjoy the company culture and you’ll feel a ton of energy in the office. We move fast and are always making big changes to our product. As a engineer here, you get a lot of say over how the product is designed and control on what projects you want to work on.”
