If you’re looking for a new job, here’s a good place to start.
Career website Glassdoor Inc. released its annual report on the best places to work based on employees who elected to anonymously submit a company review on its website over a 12-month time frame.
This year’s winner, Bain & Company, has been in the top five since the list’s inception in 2009 and has been No. 1 three times. Employees cite a great salary, benefits, mentorship, and a culture that promotes employee engagement, according to Scott Dobroski, Glassdoor community expert.
While a company has yet to take the top spot two years in a row, past winners don’t tend to fall precipitously. Airbnb, however, bucked the trend this year, falling to No. 35 after taking the top spot in its Glassdoor debut in 2015.
“Airbnb has definitely dropped amongst the most ever,” said Dobroski. Some of the factors that played into the fall have to do with the typical growing pains of a startup. “Airbnb continues to grow, and employees say it’s now harder to find work-life balance, opportunities for advancement, and transparency from the top,” Dobroski added. The company still receives high ratings from employees, so Dobroski isn’t particularly worried. “These are common themes among emerging, private companies that are doing well globally.”
