This list takes quantitative and qualitative data into account. For quality of reviews, Glassdoor's proprietary awards algorithm factors in what employees have to say that shows winners truly outshine the rest in the eyes of their employees. Quality reviews are those that help job seekers by offering insights and feedback into what it's really like to work at a company, including what's working well, what needs improvement, and advice to senior management.
