Its troubles came to a head in September when the Wall Street Journal published a damning report of how Facebook operates and what it ignores, based on leaked internal documents. The next month, Frances Haugen identified herself as the whistleblower and testified before Congress, calling the company “morally bankrupt.”

Over in the small and medium-sized businesses space, those with the top company cultures are Alida, People.ai, Mixpanel, Pipefy, and Route.
