Top 50 Best Places To Work For 2013, Employees’ Choice Award Winners


The employees have spoken! Facebook, McKinsey & Company, Riverbed Technology, Bain & Company, and MD Anderson Cancer Center have been selected as the leading five Best Places to Work for 2013 – they are among 50 companies to win the 5th annual Employees’ Choice Award¹.

The Employees’ Choice Award winners are determined using feedback employees voluntarily and anonymously shared about their work experiences throughout the past year.  Employees provide feedback using Glassdoor’s online company review survey – they are asked to rate their satisfaction with their jobs and company as well as important workplace factors like work-life balance, compensation and benefits and career advancement opportunities. Employees are also asked to provide details into what they feel are some of the best reasons, as well as some of the downsides, of working at their company. At a minimum, a company must have had at least 25 reviews during the past year from U.S.-based employees to be considered for the award.
