100 Best Workplaces for Women

See our methodology and credits



Published together with our partner Great Place to Work, the 100 Best Workplaces for Women rankings are based entirely upon feedback from more than 137,762 women at Great Place to Work–Certified companies.

Women completed our anonymous Trust Index© survey, answering questions about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace, including, for example, their assessment of how fairly they're treated regardless of gender, the quality and authenticity of communications with managers, and equitable pay and promotion practices.

Results from the survey are highly reliable, having a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of 6% or less. Winning a spot on this list indicates the company has distinguished itself from peers by being a great place to work for women, and has a workplace where women have high representation in the total employee population and in management positions. The 100 companies with the highest employee ratings and female representation were selected for the list.

Employees say:


“AMEX not only focuses on career development and opportunities for the employees, but also steps up to support of work-life balance and the well-being of employees—physically, mentally and emotionally. There is a rich suite of benefits and programs in place to address employees’ needs, including mental health, healthy babies, family transition, childcare, eldercare, financial coaching, travel discounts, and auto/home insurance.”


“Work/life balance is truly respected in every aspect of the company, along with the great benefits that it offers to its employees. I enjoy the variety of experiences the company offers to employees to explore and become a well rounded not just an employee but also an individual—achieved through the various development classes that are offered throughout the year. It is a unique company to work for and I am proud to be part of this culture.”
