Some people just can't wait to get to the office.
That tends to be true if you appreciate your employer's culture, according to a recent report from job review website Glassdoor. It recently pulled together a list of top companies to work for based on employee reviews.
"Company culture is the number one factor leading to job satisfaction over the long term," said Jessica Jaffe, a Glassdoor spokeswoman. "We wanted to highlight companies whose employees rank that culture highly."
A company's culture includes career opportunities, work-life balance, and firm vision, for the purposes of the study. Compensation and benefits were excluded from consideration under "culture and values," as Glassdoor measures these separately.
In order to be considered in Glassdoor's list, firms needed to have a culture and values rating of at least 4.0 and required a minimum of 30 reviews posted from August 2015 to August 2016.
The nine companies here are listed in order of their overall culture and values ratings and alphabetically when there was a tie.
Good news for job seekers, all these companies are hiring, according to Glassdoor.
