About Best Places To Work

Best Places To Work is a ranking of the best places to work both overall and across individual categories as determined by reviews left by visitors to Indeed on individual company pages.

  • What rankings are available?

    Companies are ranked by certain geographical areas and industries, as well as nationally. Within each ranking, companies are ranked for Work-Life Balance, Pay & Benefits, Management, Job Security & Advancement, Culture and Overall, as determined by job seeker reviews.

  • Criteria for eligibility

    When searching by location and/or industry, all companies matching the criteria are shown and ranked. To be included in this view, a company must either be eligible for visibility at the national level or else maintain a minimum of 3.9 overall rating with at least 50 job seeker-submitted reviews, as well as have at least one or more open jobs listed on Indeed.com (regardless of sponsored status).

    Eligibility for visibility at the national level is determined taking into account a company's size, number of job openings and locations, and economic influence at a national level.

  • Update frequency

    Overall company rankings and eligibility are reviewed and updated on a periodic basis.

  • Company information

    Information on a company (such as industry, logos and description) is aggregated from a variety of public sources for companies who have not claimed their pages or with incomplete/insufficient information on their company page.

    Companies wishing to update their information may claim their page at any time for free and add/update the information accordingly. Company provided information will be reflected on the Best Places To Work rankings soon afterward.

    Company ratings as well as excerpts of reviews and content are determined solely by reviews left by job seekers on Indeed.

  • Ranking calculation methodology

    Indeed uses a proprietary algorithm to rank companies using a variety of factors, such as average rating, number of reviews, and the history of job openings. But in general, companies with a large number of high ratings will place higher in the rankings.

    The ranking methodology is applied uniformly across all companies, both at the national and sub-list levels.

    After rankings and ratings are calculated, companies may be excluded for a variety of reasons such as suspicions of fraud, abuse or other activities which Indeed ultimately determines may negatively affect the veracity or utility of the rankings for job seekers.
