The 2018 Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards for the Best Places to Work rely on feedback from employees who elected to anonymously submit a company review on Glassdoor.
When submitting a company review, employees are asked to share their opinion on some of the best reasons to work for their employer (pros), any downsides (cons), and are encouraged to provide advice to management. In addition, employees are asked to rate how satisfied they are with their employer overall, rate their CEO, as well as rate key workplace attributes like career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, senior management, and work-life balance. Employees also are asked whether they would recommend their employer to a friend and whether they believe their employer’s six-month business outlook is positive, negative or if they have no opinion.
The Glassdoor 2018 Employees’ Choice Awards for the Best Places to Work feature six distinct categories. For each category, company reviews and ratings from current and former employees were considered between November 1, 2016 and October 22, 2017.
Each list was compiled using Glassdoor’s awards proprietary algorithm, and each employer’s rating determined based on the quantity, quality and consistency of reviews during the eligibility timeframe.
