The 50 best places to work in 2017, according to employees

New you, new job?

If the coming change in calendar year has you itching to do something different, jobs and recruiting site Glassdoor has you covered with this year's Employees' Choice Awards, which features the 50 best places to work in 2017 across the US.

To find the companies with the most satisfied workers, Glassdoor scanned its massive database of company reviews and ratings from current and former employees.

Reviews include employees' opinions on some of the best reasons to work for their employer, any downsides, advice to management, and whether they'd recommend their employer to a friend, as well as ratings on how satisfied they are with their employer overall, their CEO, and key workplace attributes like career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture, and values.

Based on employees' reviews, companies received overall ratings on a scale of one to five, with five representing the most satisfied employees. (Though Glassdoor's calculations extend beyond the thousandth to determine final rank order, ratings displayed are limited to one decimal space.)

According to Scott Dobroski, Glassdoor's community expert, employees love working at all of the companies that made the list, and many of these companies share some commonalities.

"We see employees talking favorably about working for companies with mission-driven company cultures, working for senior leaders who embrace and practice transparency, doing interesting work that has a greater impact, career growth opportunities, and competitive pay," he told Business Insider. "We also see employees at tech companies in particular talking about great perks they enjoy, including free meals, gyms on site, massages, free laundry services, and generous parental leave policies."
