Winners were ranked based on their overall rating that was obtained over the last year on a five-point scale, with five being the most satisfied ranking. With a rating of 4.5/5, an anonymous Google employee commented on Glassdoor that you work with “genuinely passionate, smart, friendly people. Interesting problems to solve and extremely collaborative culture.” Another said the tech giant ‘allows you to work with cutting edge technology’ as we as ‘within a great, diverse culture where you will learn constantly.’

“Workers are increasingly prioritizing culture over cash and research consistently shows that culture is the leading driver of long-term employee satisfaction,” Andrew Chamberlain, chief economist at Glassdoor.

“However, being a culture-first organization isn’t about expensive perks, but about articulating a clearly-stated mission that resonates with employees’ own aspirations and fuels their best performance,” he added.

According to Top Resume, January and February are good months to switch jobs because this is a time when employers are likely to receive updated budgets to hire new talent and company execs have a better idea of the type of recruits they need to succeed throughout the year.
