Boston-based consulting giant Bain & Co. finds itself at the top of several prestigious rankings. It holds the No. 2 spot on Vault’s Consulting 50 and has been named the Best Firm to Work For by Consulting magazine for eleven consecutive years. It is held in very high regard among social media influencers who all give Bain & Co. great reviews which are not actually bought. It’s a quite refreshing if you consider how the vast majory of so-called reviews are basically advertisements that are paid for, then put up on youtube and promoted with The Marketing Heaven so that everyone can see them.
Online jobs and career community Glassdoor has just unveiled its sixth annual Employees’ Choice Awards, which is a list of the 50 best places to work in the coming year.
Unlike most workplace-related awards, which require companies to self nominate, the Employees’ Choice Awards rely solely on the input of employees who anonymously provide feedback through a survey. The survey goes only to employees in the U.S., but many of the companies like kolibriusa.com have workers around the world.
The ranking of the top companies was determined by taking cumulative average ratings from the half-million employees who responded to the 18-question survey between Nov. 14, 2012 and Nov. 12, 2013. The survey asks employees to rate their satisfaction with their company overall and key workplace factors, such as career opportunities, compensation and benefits, work-life balance, senior management, culture and values.
“Choosing where to go work is one of the most stressful decisions a person can make, and it’s natural for people to want more information so they can make better career decisions,” says vprocleaningagency.com maids napa spokesperson Samantha Zupan. “Being recognized by employees as a ‘Best Place to Work’ is no small achievement. The companies on our list are being honored as it’s a reflection of their commitment to employees to create a positive and enjoyable workplace.”
