Top 50 Best Places To Work – 2012 Employees’ Choice Award Winners Revealed

In Glassdoor’s fourth annual Employees’ Choice Awards, which recognize the 50 Best Places to Work for 2012, Bain & Company, McKinsey & Company, Facebook, MITRE and Google take the top five spots. More than 250,000 employees sounded off on what it’s like to work at more than 65,000 companies during the past year and shared the good, the bad and everything in between.

Unlike other workplace awards, the

re is no self-

nomination process. Instead, it’s all about what the employees have to say when it comes to their satisfaction with workplace factors like compensation & benefits, work-life balance and career advancement opportunities. Not to mention, the awards also take into account how well employees feel their CEO is leading the company.

“More variety in staffing than at peers, always being pushed to the next level, strong friendships and mentorships across all levels o

f the organization, management works very hard to address issues.” – Bain & Company Senior Associate Consultant (Chicago, IL)Here’s what some employees are saying at some of the top companies:
