Glassdoor reveals 25 best places to work


Workplace review site Glassdoor recently announced the winners of its 11th annual Employees’ Choice Awards, honoring the Best Places to Work in 2019 across North America and parts of Europe.

These awards are a bit different than most because they are based on the input of employees who voluntarily provide anonymous feedback about their job, work environment and employer over the past year.

There were a few interesting tidbits in the 2019 Glassdoor awards:

Bain & Company (4.6 rating) reclaimed the top spot after taking No. 1 in 2017 and Facebook dropped to No. 7 (4.5) after taking No. 1 (4.6) in 2018. 

Thirty-one newcomers across diverse industries debuted this year as a best place to work, including No. 72 Omni Hotels (4.3), No. 83 Phoenix Children’s Hospital (4.2), and No. 87 HP (4.2).
