Top 10 Best Places to Work 2019 According to Glassdoor

Employee review site Glassdoor just revealed the winners of its 11th annual Employees’ Choice Awards, naming the Best Places to Work in 2019 throughout North America and parts of Europe. Glassdoor determines these companies from voluntary and anonymous employee feedback about their employer, job and work environment during the past year.

“In today’s tight labor market, job seekers are in the driver’s seat when it comes to deciding where to work and they want to know the inner workings of a company before accepting a new job,” Glassdoor chief economist Andrew Chamberlain said.

Job seekers are currently at a huge advantage in the labor market. The U.S. economy added 250,000 in October alone, and unemployment remains at an almost 50 year low. Consequently, competition among companies to attract and retain talent is beginning to reach a fever pitch. And, inclusion on Glassdoor’s annual Best Places to Work list is a major advantage to companies that make the grade. Glassdoor compared company review over eight variables – overall company rating, work-life balance, career opportunities, culture/values, compensation/benefits, senior management, six-month business outlook, and likelihood that employees would recommend company to a friend.

Glassdoor considered 1,000 employers and at least 75 ratings across these attributes for its Best Places to Work list.

In 2017, Facebook topped the best places to work list. However, the social media giant fell to number 7 this year after a difficult year and increased competition with rival employers.

Glassdoor indicates that these are the top 10 best places to work:
