The workplace isn’t what it used to be. There was a time when you could settle into a plum job and stay there till retirement, everything steady and secure. 

That’s not the case anymore; the long-term “company man” is pretty much a thing of the past. But Glassdoor reports there are still some damn fine workplaces to land, and some may even surprise you.

Thrillist reports that Glassdoor doesn’t pick these companies subjectively, but uses “a proprietary algorithm that weighs reviews and ratings that both former and current employees have made during the past year. 

Those reviews gauge feelings on everything from the CEO and senior management, to career opportunities, culture & values, and work-life balance.” 

Listed below are the top large employers (places you may have heard of) that seem to make workers the happiest. It’s a real mix, too—everything from fast food to tech giants to supermarkets. So if you’re feeling like it’s time to move on, start shotgunning those resumes to these outfits today.
