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.

Recreational Equipment Inc (REI)

Last year's Rank: 58
Courtesy of REI

The nation’s largest consumer co-op now gives employees two annual “Yay Days”: paid-time-off to go outside and use the outdoor gear they sell for such activities as hiking, biking, climbing, camping and skiing. Unlike their contemporaries, REI would like folks to spend their working careers working in this retailer. Last year REI funded $60 million in its incentive plan and profit-sharing contributions, including giving every eligible employee an automatic 5% company retirement contribution into their 401(k) and an additional 7% profit-sharing contribution. Many here, including part-timers who work 20 hours or more per week, also enjoys health care benefits for themselves and their dependents. Read the Great Place to Work review here.
