With ever-evolving job market and its changing trends, companies, employees and job seekers find their ways to retain the best talent and compete amongst each other. Earlier, a company’s repute was built upon years and years of policies centred around employees and the kind of talent they attracted. These days, there are no gaps between a company and its employee; these days the employee can simply review it on job portals and reach others.
Just as it has been doing every year for the past few years, this year too, job search and salary comparison website, Glassdoor has analysed company reviews across eight attributes to come up with a list of top ten tech companies to work for in 2019. The companies were analysed on eight variables which are senior management, career opportunities, work-life balance, culture and values, compensation and benefits, six-month business outlook and whether the respondents would recommend the organization to someone.
The data comprised organisations that had a minimum of 1,000 employees and were rated with a minimum number set at 75 across eight variables to be considered on the list.
