Indeed Announces Annual “Top-Rated Workplaces: The 50 Best” List

Social media giant Facebook ranks #1 on this year’s list of top-rated workplaces in the Fortune 500

AUSTIN, Texas--()--Indeed, the world’s number one job site, debuted today the 50 top-rated workplaces in 2018, curated from the site’s millions of company reviews on Indeed Company Pages. Facebook, the world’s largest social media network, took the top spot on Indeed’s list for the first time. Airline innovator Southwest Airlines reclaimed the second place ranking.

“With so much competition in recruiting today, companies are continuing to evolve their overall employee experience in the hopes of attracting and retaining top talent for their open positions,” said Indeed SVP of HR, Paul Wolfe. “Organizations that stood out among top-rated companies have worked hard to listen to the specific needs of their employees to provide an outstanding experience through strategic and thoughtful workplace programs.”

This year’s top-rated workplace, Facebook, is praised by employees for its “fun and involved workplace,” “incredible benefits,” “excellent compensation that rewards strong performance,” and for being “very transparent from the top-down.” The environment and experience at Facebook are also often described in recent employee reviews as diverse, collaborative, interesting, and meaningful.

New to the top ten, Fannie Mae - ranked #16 on last year’s list curated by Indeed - jumped up to take the #6 ranking this year. Similarly, Delta moved up from last year’s #11 ranking to #4 for 2018. Newcomers make up almost one-third of this year’s list, with companies like Live Nation (#13), eBay (#14), CBS (#26), Fluor Corp (#33), and AbbVie (#35) making their debut as one of Indeed’s Top-Rated Workplaces in 2018.

Indeed has over 72 million ratings and reviews. Indeed compiled this list by including companies that are members of the Fortune 500 Index with over 5,000 employees and have at least 100 reviews over the last two years. These companies are the most highly rated on overall employee experience. Click here for the full report.
