Top 10 Best Places To Work From Glassdoor Research

The top 10 best places to work were announced by Glassdoor research, and it contains some surprises this year. Glassdoor obtained the results from 2.1 million company reviews, and uses a proprietary algorithm that takes an employer’s overall company rating combined with how employees have rated each employer’s five workplace factors on a five-point scale (1=very dissatisfied, 3=okay, 5=very satisfied). Those workplace factors are listed below:

  • Career opportunities
  • Compensation and benefits
  • Culture and values
  • Senior management
  • Work/life balance

And the top 10 best places to work are shown below:

  1. Bain & Company
  2. Facebook
  3. Boston Consulting Group
  4. Google
  5. World Wide Technology
  6. Fast Enterprises
  7. In-N-Out Burger
  8. LinkedIn
  9. Adobe
  10. Power Home Remodeling

Although technology dominated the top 10, the results are pretty much distributed over several industries from fast food to consulting organizations. Some of the more interesting callouts from the research was around perks.

Glassdoor’s research found that more than half (57%) of the respondents said that benefits and perks were among their top considerations before accepting a job. Even more surprising was that four out of five workers say they would prefer new benefits over a pay raise. Millennials, in particular, were more likely to be attracted by free food and services over pay considerations. So it looks like working for peanuts may not be too far awry in this new age, but you might want to throw in some team building with those free snacks as well.
