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:


“I have worked at many well-known technology companies over my 25-year career, and I would say hands down that Autodesk is the best place I have ever worked. I feel so supported and empowered here. The company culture is much like a family, and everyone really strives to work as a team to ensure our collective successes. Autodesk does a fantastic job of recognizing individual contributions and rewards us far more than any other company I know in our industry. This makes me want to work harder for the company and I have a deep level of gratitude for my job and that I get to be part of such a fantastic company. Our salaries are very competitive and the benefits exceed industry standards. I feel like I matter here at Autodesk and that my ideas and contributions are recognized and appreciated. I am treated with the utmost respect at all times by both my management and my peers. Autodesk fosters an environment of integrity in every area. My job satisfaction has never been higher and I love working at Autodesk!”


“I’m given an opportunity to develop and grow in my career, even outside of what Autodesk provides in terms of its training and development opportunities (which is already above and beyond other companies for which I have worked). For instance, I can attend a conference or do something outside of my regular work to further my professional development—and Autodesk and my manager support and encourage this! My manager really does care about my future, at Autodesk and beyond, and works with me as a mentor and partner in the work that we do.”
