10 Jan

In December, we highlighted Glassdoor’s 2018 Best U.S. Employers. And we studied Optimizing Employer-Employee Relationships. Earlier last year, we posted about Marketing Career Planning and Career Development. In addition, we looked at Getting Off a Bad Career Path. Today, we see the  firms on Glassdoor’s best employers survey each year . There are only three of them!


Firms on Glassdoor’s Best Employers Survey Each Year

Annually, for the past 10 years, Glassdoor has published its best employers’ list. Just three firms have made the list each year. And they are Bain & Company, Google, and Apple.

As reported by Business Insider:

Glassdoor published a list of the best companies of 2018 based on anonymous employee reviews. Business Insider looked into which companies have made its list — which features 100 companies annually — since its inception 10 years ago. Accordingly, Bain & Company, Google, and Apple were the only three companies to have made the list every year. Glassdoor’s list of the 100 best companies of 2018 saw plenty of newcomers — 40, to be exact.”

“Thus, Business Insider looked at some Glassdoor analytics to figure out what reviewers love about these three companies. And we found that they are led by widely adored CEOs, typically hold moderately tricky interviews, and feature top perks like generous paid time off policies, health insurance, and 401K plans.”

Let’s dig into why these three firms have remained such popular employers. First, click on the company name in blue to visit its Glassdoor page. Then, read the data gathered by Business Insider. The three photos are from Glassdoor.
