The list, which is solely based on employee reviews and feedback, measures the top companies to work for in 2013.

The companies that consistently rank as great places to work include Apple, Bain & Company, CareerBuilder, Chevron, General Mills, Google, McKinsey & Company, MITRE, National Instruments, and QUALCOMM.
