‘An incredibly supportive place to work’

The top choice was Bain & Company, a global management consulting firm, with an overall company rating of 4.6. The company ranked no. 2 in 2018.

“Bain offers outstanding compensation for all its employees,” an office services specialist based out of Atlanta noted.

Tech companies dominated the list, including search giant Google (8th), remote conferencing company Zoom Video Communications (2nd), Procore (4th), Salesforce (11th), HubSpot (16th), DocuSign (17th), and Ultimate Software (18th). Tech giant Apple (APPL), meanwhile, tumbled 48 spots from No. 36 to No. 84.

LinkedIn and Facebook (FB) were the only social media companies to crack the top 10, and were both rated 4.5. Facebook notably dropped from the top spot in 2018 to no. 7 in 2019. LinkedIn (MSFT), however, surged from no. 21 last year to the sixth spot in 2018. 

Athleisure company lululemon (LULU) and low-cost carrier Southwest Airlines (LUV) were nos. 9 and 10 on the list, both rated 4.4.

A technical service technologist for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (14th) wrote: “You can’t beat the reason you come to work everyday. The team environment is healthy and supportive. Our supervisors want to see us grow and develop.”
