These are the Top 50 best places to work for in 2018

It’s summer which means most of us are clamoring to get out of the office most of the time. However, if you work for one of these 50 companies that may not be the case. Indeed just released its 50 top-rated workplaces in America annual report and some pretty impressive companies made the cut.

Indeed looked at companies that had at least 100 verified employee reviews submitted over the last two years, then compiled the ones (out of 72 million employer ratings) that had the most highly rated on “overall employee experience.” This ranking only looks at larger (at least 5,000 employees), very well-known companies in the Fortune 500 Index.“Companies that have a progressive culture, focus on the employee experience and make sure their employees are engaged tend to make the top 10,”said Paul Wolfe, senior vice president at Indeed in a company statement. So where does everyone want to work?

4. Delta
3. Salesforce
2. Southwest Airlines
1. Facebook

Though Facebook had a bit of a rocky year with data breaches, their company culture and perks still are a major draw for people.“Clearly, Facebook’s employees over the last two years believe that there’s been transparency internally, from the top down,” said Wolfe. “The company is also focused on perks and benefits, which brings it to the top of the list.”

“While it might appear that the challenges the company has recently faced might deter people, the employees we attract are the type of people that tend to be excited and engaged in those big, complicated problems and would like to solve them,” Anthony Harrison, a Facebook spokesperson, said in an interview.

And even though Southwest also had a lot of negative news this year, it is still considered a great place to work. And though people may not always appreciate their experiences with airlines,  they are apparently pretty good places to work. Delta Air Lines Inc., and JetBlue Airways Corp. also made the Top 10.

The full list is included below.  Live Nation, eBay, and CBS all made it on to the list for the first time. Cisco and Microsoft both made significant jumps. Cisco climbed from 45 to 23 and Microsoft rose from 22 to 11. Both Disney and Google which usually rank very highly were not even included on the list.
