Recently Glassdoor.com announced the winners of the second annual “Employees’ Choice Awards” for Best Places to Work.
The Top 50 were selected from more than 37,000 companies reviewed by the nearly 100,000 employees who completed a 20-question survey on Glassdoor.com in 2009. Only companies who received at least 25 votes were included on the list. The survey questions relate to employees’ attitudes about:
- Career opportunities
- Compensation and benefits
- Employee morale, recognition and feedback
- Senior Leadership
- Work/life balance
- Fairness and respect
Southwest came in number one with a 4.7 rating on a scale of 1 to 5. United Airlines and Gibson Guitar are at the bottom of the reviewed companies with a 1.9 rating. FedEx scored a satisfactory rating of 3.8. Neutral ratings were given to UPS (3.1) and the Postal Service (2.8).
