When it comes to the best companies to work for in America, Hilton lands the top spot.

The hotels and resorts chain ranked No. 1 on Great Place To Work’s Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For list and pulls in more than four out of five stars on Glassdoor. About 80 percent of employees say they would recommend it to a friend and another 93 percent of workers approve of Chief Executive Officer Christopher Nassetta.

“The culture of Hilton is one that makes me proud to work here but to also serve in my community,” one employee in Tennessee wrote about the brand. “Beyond that, I am encouraged to have a balanced work-life with the flexibility of working from home.”

To compile its list of the top places to work in the United States, Great Place To Work asked employers to respond to more than 60 survey questions about their company, including things like benefits and workplace culture. About 85 percent of the evaluation, however, is based on what employees report about their experiences, including their views on the company’s values, ability to contribute new ideas and the effectiveness of their leaders.
