15 Cool Companies Your Friends Recommend Working For

There’s no better place for advice than from the people who know you best: your friends. Generally (we hope!) our friends want the best for us and want us to have opportunities to succeed. They’ll give us the real scoop on something, even if they wouldn’t divulge that information to a stranger.

So imagine that you had thousands of close friends, each who had worked for many different companies. They could give you inside information on what’s great, and what to avoid. Essentially, that is what Glassdoor’s “Recommend to a friend” rating is. The wisdom of thousands of friends – all condensed into one number! This number will tell you whether this is a company you’d flourish and succeed, or if you shouldn’t even bother applying. We’ve rounded up 15 companies that your friends would ABSOLUTELY recommend you work for, meaning they all scored a rating of 90% or above – which believe us, is not easy to accomplish!
