The 25 Best Tech Employers For Women [Ranked]

Woman working in tech are likely to be less happy with their employers than their male co-workers, according to new research from Glassdoor.

There’s been a renewed focus on women’s pay caused by Satya Nadella’s advice about asking for a raise last month.

So Glassdoor wondered if women tech workers are as happy with their companies as their male co-workers.

Answer: Not really. Women are less happy than men at 14 of the 25 tech companies Glassdoor examined. They are more happy at 4 companies.

Glassdoor’s research shows that women in tech are paid well and paid about the same for equal work. Yet, women are still, on average, earning less because there are fewer women in tech. That means fewer experienced women in higher-paying team leadership roles.

“Not only is there a difference in pay between men and women in tech, but we also see a gender gap when it comes to employee satisfaction among tech employees,” ” explains Scott Dobroski, Glassdoor Community Expert.

“Women are slightly less satisfied on average than men in four key areas that we track on Glassdoor, including senior leadership, work-life balance, culture and values, and career opportunities,” he tells us.

We looked through Glassdoor and pulled out women’s and men’s rankings for 25 tech companies. We’ve also included salary information where it was available.
