The Glassdoor ranking is based solely on the input of employees who provided feedback about their job, work environment, and company via Glassdoor's company review survey. Employees were asked to use a five-point scale to rate how satisfied they are with their company overall and how they feel their CEO is leading the company, as well as key workplace attributes like career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, senior management, and work-life balance. They were also asked whether they would recommend their employer to a friend, and what their opinion is on the company's business outlook in the next six months.
