A good job isn''t just about the paycheck and insurance benefits. Most people want to feel like their work is contributing to the greater good of the world.
 
And they want their workplaces to be fun, not miserably stressful, given how many hours of their lives they will spend there. 
 
 
To that end, job hunting site Glassdoor.com sifted through its enormous database of employee reviews to come up with its 2014 list of the 25 companies that employees say have the best corporate cultures. Employees rated their corporate culture on a scale of one (lowest) to five (highest). 
 
There are some surprises on this list for sure, including a fast-food chain that caused controversy this year with its corporate culture. 
 
No. 1: Twitter 
 
Employee rating of corporate culture: 4.5 
 
What it does: Social media network 
 
Example of great corporate culture: Because the Twitter platform is instantaneous, the work involves a lot of cutting edge technology and solving hard, interesting problems from mobile to building self-learning machines. "Team meetings on the roof are the best, great teamwork and a lot of smart people. I love how the 10 core values drive the company to always be better." - Twitter Software Engineer (San Francisco, CA) 
 
No. 2: Edelman 
 
Employee rating of corporate culture: 4.4 
 
What it does: Public relations firm 
 
Example of great corporate culture: Among the Top 50 Most In Demand Employers (North America), LinkedIn, 2014 "Through the actions of middle to senior management, you are truly made to feel valued and appreciated. Opportunities are everywhere and the culture is laid back and fun." - Edelman Senior Vice President (Washington, D.C.) 
 
No. 3: Google 
 
Employee rating of corporate culture: 4.4 
 
What it does: Internet search, mobile and web apps 
 
Example of great corporate culture: With perks galore from free food to a main campus that rivals a world class resort, Google''s corporate culture is the standard by which all other tech companies are measured. "The culture is amazing too. Each employee does not mind helping the other out if they are stuck. I feel it is encouraged to reach out out to others." - Google Software Engineer (Mountain View, CA) 
 
No. 4: Riverbed 
 
Employee rating of corporate culture: 4.3

Facebook 
 
Employee rating of corporate culture: 4.3 
 
What it does: Social networking website 
 
Example of great corporate culture: Facebook''s main employee campus was inspired by Disneyland, but at Facebook, all the shops and stores are free.
