Facebook dominated, taking top place in the tech industry award as the best place to work in Seattle, and in the country, up from the company's No. 2 spot a year ago.
While Facebook took the overall #1 spot in Glassdoor's 100 Best Places to Work in 2018 list, Delta was the top travel company and top airline, at #17. The average rating of the 700,000 companies reviewed on Glassdoor is 3.3.
Workers looking to make a job change in the year ahead would do well to consider a gig with one of these companies. Last year, it ranked at No. 36, with a rating that was actually slightly lower, at 4.2.
Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants was the highest-ranked hotel company on the list, at #37.
Some other Seattle companies that made the list include Starbucks (96th), Space X (50th), Zillow (57th), REI (61st), and Microsoft (39th), among others.
Winners, Glassdoor says, are decided using a proprietary algorithm based on anonymous employee reviews that are provided voluntarily through Glassdoor's site.
Glassdoor also produces a list of the best-rated small- and medium-size workplaces, as well as rankings in four other countries: Canada, Britain, France and Germany. "Employers where employees love to work continue to prove that they have a recruiting and business performance advantage".
Ultimate Software, based in Miami, made the list for the first time.
