See our methodology and credits



How We Selected the Winning Companies

To determine the Best Workplaces for Millennials, Great Place to Work surveyed over 398,000 U.S. employees from Great Place to Work-Certified companies and ranked companies based on three factors:

1. Key Great Place to Work Metrics. We analyzed how positively Millennials rated their organizations on over 50 different metrics defining great workplaces, such as managers' competence, respect and fairness in the workplace, opportunities for meaningful work, and great colleagues.

2. Comparison to Other Generations. We compared Millennials' survey results to their colleagues' to ensure Millennials had as positive an experience as people of other generations. Specifically, we looked at an index of factors where Millennials often lag their peers, such as access to meaningful work, fair pay, and plans for a future with their organizations.

3. A Consistent Experience within a Diverse Group. We also analyzed demographic patterns to ensure that companies were creating great workplaces for all Millennials, regardless of who they are or what they do for the organization.

Surveys were conducted anonymously and Millennials' results achieved at least a 95% confidence level, 7% margin of error for each organization. Companies needed to employ at least 50 Millennials to be considered.

Employees say:


“I just turned 23 and I have responsibilities that far exceed my nominal level of experience. Management trusts and fully believes in the idea that millennials are the future of this company. I am able to soak up knowledge from individuals who have worked at SAS for many years. Not a lot of companies can offer that type of intangible asset to recent graduates looking to jumpstart their career.”


“At SAS, there’s a very unique sense of community throughout the entire company. This results in a work environment where everyone is generally helpful if someone makes a reasonable request of them. I routinely take five to 20 minutes out of my day to answer a question coming from another group. Also, I cannot express enough how amazing the healthcare and personal wellness benefits are. The staff who work at our health care center, pharmacy, work-life center, and fitness center really do care about my personal health.”
