The employees have decided


Unlike other awards, the ranking is based solely on the authentic feedback of those who do Company know best: the employees.

  7. Daimler
  8. BMW
  9. adidas
  10. mömax

25's best employers for 2018 include companies from a wide variety of industries. In addition to the textile industry, trade, IT and research, many employers from the consultancy and traditional industries will be among the top performers this year. With an average rating of 4,7, the consulting firm Bain & Company - last year's winner in the US - replaced SAP (rank 3) in Germany as the best employer of the year, although the Walldorf-based software company was even able to increase its average rating (from 4,4 to 4,6).

What distinguishes top-placed companies


A closer look at top-ranked employers shows that salary is not necessarily the highest priority for employees. However, other factors such as employee benefits, culture & values ​​and career opportunities are highly valued. Often the reviews for the top 5 employers highlight great colleagues and a good working atmosphere.

Among the major US companies, the social network Facebook was able to make up one more place compared to the previous year and is the new number one. This places Facebook at the top of the rankings (2018, 2013, 2011) for the third time and has been on the Best Places To Work list for eight consecutive years. In the UK, this year Facebook celebrates its debut as the Best Employer of the Year (ranked 4), with Google in first place (ranked 5 in the US). Facebook's COO Sheryl Sandberg says:

"

How are employers assessed concretely?


When employees submit a business review to Glassdoor, they are asked to list the pros and cons of each company. In addition, the employee is encouraged to give advice to the management and asked how satisfied he or she is generally with the employer. It is possible to assess the CEO and five key attributes of the workplace: career opportunities, compensation & benefits, culture & values, leadership and work / life balance. In addition, employees are asked if they would recommend their employer to a friend and how they assess the business outlook over the next six months.

The best employers in Germany 2018 are determined by Glassdoor by its own algorithm. This takes into account the quality, the quantity and the uniformity of the activated company valuations, which were transmitted by employees in Germany. All reviews were between the 1. November 2016 and the 22. October 2017 delivered.

Employers who have been analyzed for the German ranking must have at least 20 company ratings in the specified period.
