Forbes -- America's Best Midsize Employers 2016

PRA Group was #237 on Forbes’ 2016 rankings, one of only 20 companies in the banking and financial services industry and the only debt buyer on the list.

In compiling the list, Forbes “reached out to workers in established companies throughout the nation to ascertain which among them make their employees feel secure, understood, needed and inspired.”

According to Forbes, companies on the list were chosen based on an independent survey conducted by statistics portal Statista from a sample of 30,000 American employees working for firms or institutions employing more than 1,000 workers. Willingness to recommend one’s own employer was the most important metric; a secondary dimension to the assessment involved asking employees to mention good or bad employers in sectors and industries besides their own.
