Unless you've somehow already found the job of your dreams, it's hard not to feel like you're trapped in the safety and consistency of your boring 9-to-5 gig -- especially in the grueling slog leading up to the holidays. But just in time for the wake up call of a new year, Glassdoor has released its annual Employees' Choice Awards list naming the 50 best places to work in 2016, according to lucky people who already work there.
While your friends who work at Google constantly make you jealous with humblebrags about their perks and workspace, the search behemoth was dethroned as America's best employer on this year's list by a smaller, scrappier tech company honored by Glassdoor for the first time: Airbnb. In addition to Airbnb, several other companies made the list for the first time, including Expedia (#16), Delta Air Lines (#21), and Red Bull (#46). Meanwhile, Google fell to eighth place behind Facebook (#5) and LinkedIn (#6), but still came in ahead of other big consumer tech firms like Adobe (#19), Apple (#25), and Twitter (#26).
