Google is the second best company is the world to work for, according to a report.

CNNMoney conducted a study assessing the top 25 global workplaces, and ranked only software company SAS higher than the search engine giant.

Google was praised for its mentoring services, such as "CareerGuru", which sees 43 of the firm's top executives provide hands-on career guidance to staff in 14 of its offices around the world.

It was also lauded for its "EngAdvisors" service, a scheme set up to allow the company's engineers to discuss concerns and issues with its most senior tech staff.

Google currently receives 61 times more applications than it has vacancies to fill, according to the report.

North Carolina-based SAS took the top spot due to the accessibility of the firm's leaders. The business analytics software and services provider runs a monthly Conversations Over Coffee session for all staff, hosted by CEO Jim Goodnight.

Other tech companies on the list include NetApp in third place, praised for its progression opportunities, and Microsoft in fifth thanks to its efforts to help women succeed in the sector.
