Pros and Cons of the Top-Rated Companies to Work for
Glassdoor—which holds a growing database of more than 8 million company reviews, CEO approval ratings, salary reports, interview reviews and questions, benefits reviews and more—on Dec. 9 released its 2016 list of Best Places to Work in the U.S. The results were compiled by employee reviews and are divided by the top 50 large companies and top 50 small- to medium-sized companies.
Gulfshore Business researched the reviews to find trending pros and cons voiced by employees of the highly rated companies. Here is some common input:
Passionate, intelligent, friendly and collaborative colleagues
Good work/life balance
Perks (free food, gyms, etc.)
Obvious care for employees
Insufficient 401k plans
Too many employees
Poor mid-level management
Poor work/life balance (This response trended in both categories.)
Taking on tasks outside of job descriptions
The take away? Happy employees thrive off of inspiring, honest leadership, encouraging and competent employees, growth opportunities and a fair work/life balance.
