100 Best Companies to Work For

See our methodology and credits



To identify the 100 Best Companies to Work For, each year Fortune partners with Great Place to Work to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America.

Two-thirds of a company’s survey score is based on the results of the Trust Index Employee Survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. This survey asks questions related to employees’ attitudes about management’s credibility, overall job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The other third is based on responses to the Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, methods of internal communication, training, recognition programs, and diversity efforts.

To register for the 100 Best Companies to Work For list, which allows participation in all our Best Workplaces lists, including Millennials, Women, Diversity, and over a dozen additional lists, go to

Google/Alphabet is the No. 1 place to work for the seventh time in 10 years. Six newcomers include Veterans United at No. 30, Hilton Hotels at No. 56, and Slalom Consulting at No. 100. IKEA’s U.S. division returns to the list, along with GoDaddy and Sheetz.

When the domain registrar went public last year, every employee–regardless of tenure or role–received stock options beforehand, and, instead of company executives, five customer care representatives were invited to stand on the balcony of the New York Stock Exchange to ring the bell on the day of the IPO. Parties were held across the company as the stock soared 31% in its first day of trading. They give a bonus of $1,000 to those who volunteer more than 30 hours a year to a single charity.
