(Newser) – Google may be on the receiving end of 1.1 million job applications a year, but it's no longer the place "where professionals most want to work across the US." That's according to LinkedIn, which last week published its 2018 LinkedIn Top Companies report. The job site explains that it's used by just shy of 550 million people, whose "billions of actions" factor into the report, which considers four main factors: "interest in the company, engagement with the company’s employees, job demand, and employee retention." Quartz points out that Google was No. 1 in 2017, but no more. Here are the current Top 10:

  1. Amazon
  2. Alphabet/Google
  3. Facebook
  4. Salesforce
  5. Tesla
  6. Apple
  7. Comcast NBCUniversal
  8. Walt Disney Company
  9. Oracle
  10. Netflix
Click for the full list of 50, along with details about the size of each company's workforce (Amazon's is 100 times bigger than Netflix's) and the perks employees receive. Fortune's 2018 list of the best companies to work for has a very different Top 10.
