10 NYC companies make Glassdoor’s ‘50 Best Places to Work’ list
Four employers made the review site’s large-company ranking, while Greenhouse Software topped its list of small- and medium-sized companies.
If finding a new job is part of your 2017 resolutions, you might want to consider applying to one of these New York companies.
Recruiting and review site Glassdoor just released its “50 Best Places to Work” ranking, and 10 companies based in the greater New York area made the cut.
Internet technology company Greenhouse Software topped Glassdoor’s small- and medium-sized list, which also included five other city-based employers. Four of those companies were in the Top 20.
A New York company first appears on the large companies list at No. 11. Boston-based consulting firm Bain & Company ranked first, with Facebook and Boston Consulting Group rounding out the Top 3.
Glassdoor’s ranking consisted exclusively of employee feedback. More than 2.1 million reviews were submitted during the ranking period, which began Nov. 2, 2015, and ended on Oct. 30 of this year.
Employees were asked to grade their satisfaction with their employer, its CEO, the pros and cons of working for the company and other career attributes such as available opportunities, benefits, salary, culture, work-life balance and more.
Here is a breakdown of the companies from the New York metro region that made the 2017 list, along with an employee comment on what it’s like to work there.
