Glassdoor recently released its Top 25 Companies for Culture & Values (2014), rankings based entirely off employee feedback over the past year (with ratings based on a 1-5). Social networking site Twitter landed in the no. 1 spot this year, receiving a 4.5 rating for culture & values. PR agency Edelman took the no. 2 spot with a 4.4 score while Google, also earning a 4.4, helped round out the top three.
According to the 2014 results, 11 companies among the top 25 are within the tech industry, including Facebook (#5, 4.3), Intuit (#11, 4.1) and Apple (#15, 4.1), among others. Following technology, the retail industry was the second most-represented with three companies among the top 25: HEB (#10), Wegmans (#12) and REI (#22). And, coming in seventh place, Chick-fil-A was the only restaurant gracing this year’s list.
