Thinking of switching job? Can't decide which company to work for? Leave it to the experts to come up with a list of the best workplaces in 2018. Finding companies with the most satisfied workers is tough. To get a comprehensive understanding, researchers looked into company reviews and ratings from both current and former employees. Ratings on how satisfied they are with their employer overall, their CEO, and key workplace attributes like career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture, and values are taken into consideration. While reviews include employees' opinions on some of the best reasons to work for their employer, any downsides, advice to management, and whether they would recommend their employer to a friend. Though tech companies are renowned for their employee perks and compensation, companies from all kinds of industries — from retail to healthcare to finance and more — are beloved by their employees. Regardless of industry, a few strong themes stood out among the winners. Employees reported that they love working at companies with mission-driven company cultures, where they have clear career opportunities, and where senior leadership teams make them feel valued and are transparent with how they communicate with employees.
