There's no better place to work to work in France than luxury fashion house Hermès. At least that's according to the results of a survey based on ratings from thousands of employees.
The annual survey by jobs site Glassdoor asks employees from companies across France which employ over 1,000 staff to anonymously rate their employer, their work, the office environment, and the company itself.
Hermès, a French high fashion luxury goods manufacturer which specalises in leather and lifestyle accessories, topped the ranking with a score of 4.4 out of 5.
Former employees complimented the company, which is headquartered in Paris, for everything from its strong team spirit to the quality of its canteen and the chance to rise the company's ranks.

In second place was last year's winner ad tech firm Criteo, which specialises in targeted online advertising and also scored 4.4 (although slightly less than Hermès before the scores were rounded down).
French video game company Ubisoft also scored 4.4 on the ranking.
The rest of the top 10 looked like this:
7. AUTO1 Group
9. Leroy Merlin
Glassdoor claims its survey is unique compared to all others as it is based wholly on opinions offered voluntarily by employees past and present.
“In an increasingly competitive job market for businesses, job seekers now have the power to choose where they want to work,” said Andrew Chamberlain, Economist at Glassdoor. “They want to know the inner workings of a company before accepting a position.
“The winners of the Employee Choice Award are employers who invest strategically in corporate culture, career opportunities and more, which is a major advantage for their recruitment.”
