 “Some people go to priests; others to poetry; I, to my friends,” Virginia Woolf once wrote. It’s no wonder these words have stayed timeless: our friends often know what is good for us — like a job, career move, or employment decision — even better than we do ourselves. So what if you were able to aggregate the advice of thousands of friends to help you find where your next job will be? That’s basically what Glassdoor’s “Recommended to a friend” rating does. This rating allows you to see whether past and current employees of a company would sing the praises of their workplace to their most trusted acquaintances, or if they would exhort them to stay away. At the 15 companies listed here, employees almost unanimously would sing the praises of the company to their friends. And better yet: all of these companies are hiring!

What Employees Say: “Great kitchen, office cat, definitely feel like I’m part of a growing behemoth.

Truly smart, talented, and good people are here trying to make a company that is just as profitable as it is good for society. First company I’ve worked at where I’m actually proud of the product and constantly impressed by what we’re able to do.” – Current Employee
