50 best companies to work for -- 3 in Texas, none in Houston


Recommended Posts

Glassdoor is out with its annual list of the best companies for which to work in America. Three are Texas-based:

2. Southwest Airlines, Dallas

19. National Instrument, Austin

32. Fluor, Irving

None in Houston, though.

Glassdoor ratings are interesting because they are based, in large part, on reviews by actual employees inside the companies, and not just on numbers. I'm sure a lot of us have worked for companies that look great on paper, but provided a less than great working environment.

Here's the full list, where you can read the employee reviews: http://www.glassdoor.com/Best-Places-to-Work-LST_KQ0,19.htm

Here's the top ten:

1. Facebook, Palo Alto (San Francisco)

2. Southwest Airlines, Dallas

3. Bain & Company, Boston

4. General Mills, Minneapolis

5. Edelman, Chicago

6. Boston Consulting, Boston

7. SAS Institute, Cary (Raleigh)

8. Slalom Consulting, Seattle

9. Overstock.com, Salt Lake City

10. Susquehanna International Group, Bala Cynwyd (Philadelphia)

It's interesting to me that so few dot-coms are in the top ten, even though there is a stereotype about what it's like to work at a dot-com. Apple and Google were in the 20's, and 30's. And there's only one true dot-com in the top ten.

What's the best company you've ever worked for?
