How Mark Zuckerberg runs Facebook, the best place to work in America

According to Glassdoor Facebook is the most desirable place to work. What is  the daily routine of Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg? Business Insider took a look.

The 33-year-old runs Facebook, the social media giant with a market cap of $505.63 billion. What’s more, Facebook just snagged the top spot in Glassdoor’s annual rankings of the most desirable places to workReviewers on the career site specifically pointed to Zuckerberg himself as a big draw.

While the tech CEO dedicates a ton of time to the company, Zuckerberg still makes the time to exercise, travel extensively, and spend time with his family.

He stays productive and balanced by eliminating non-essential choices from his life and setting ambitious goals for himself.

Here’s a look at an average day for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg:

After waking up at 8 a.m., the Facebook founder immediately checks Facebook, Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp on his phone, he told Jerry Seinfeld in a Facebook Live Q&A.

That’s also why he wears the same thing almost everyday.

Zuckerberg’s work uniform consists of jeans, sneakers, and a gray t-shirt. When asked about his wardrobe in 2014, he told the audience: «I really want to clear my life to make it so that I have to make as few decisions as possible about anything except how to best serve this community.»

Zuckerberg puts in 50 to 60 hours a week at Facebook, but he thinks about the social media platform constantly.

«I spend most of my time thinking about how to connect the world and serve our community better, but a lot of that time isn’t in our office or meeting with people or doing what you’d call real work,» he told CNN.
