Retail is pushing ahead of City institutions and even highly desirable tech companies as the best place to work in the UK.
Asos and Topshop owner Arcadia followed and purveyor of posh Harrods came in fourth place in LinkedIn's annual ranking.
Google, largely credited for creating the cool bean-bag and free food office environment, slipped into eight place from fourth last year and number one in 2015, while Facebook climbed to to ninth from 17.
The BBC climbed into the top 10 for the first time while representing the City, PwC, Deloitte and KPMG represent the consulting industry in 11th, 16th and 17th position respectively, while Lloyds squeezed in the top 20 at 18.
