Best Places to Work in 2017

The 2017 List of Best Places to Work Holds Some Major Surprises

What do employees really want? According to Glassdoor's latest list of the 50 Best Places to Work — which is based on employee feedback — companies receive high ratings because of a few key factors: generous pay (Apple), friendly co-workers (Trader Joe's), awesome benefits (Ikea), opportunities for advancement (Boston Consulting Group), and great senior leadership (FedEx Freight).

The 2017 list reveals some intriguing changes from previous years. In 2016, the No. 1 spot was held by Airbnb, but the company had a steep fall from grace on the new list, all the way to No. 35.

In-N-Out Burger cracked the top 10 for the first time, coming in at No. 7, and some total newbies to the list include Microsoft (No. 37) and Lululemon (No. 38). Bain & Company climbed one step from second place to reach the very top spot, while Facebook went from No. 5 in 2016 (and No. 13 in 2015!) to No. 2 for 2017. Keep reading for a peek into the happiest companies.
