Research is divided on when is the best time to look for a new job, but it’s undeniable that a new year tends to hasten psychological effects: new beginnings, fresh clarity, and a renewed purpose. So for those on the lookout, it’s also useful to know which companies are the best places to work in the country—as rated by their employees.

Based on data gathered by recruiting website Glassdoor, here are America’s top 15 best places to work in 2024.

Glassdoor’s results are determined by their ‘proprietary algorithm’ which converts workplace reviews (rating companies on nine attributes like compensation, benefits, culture, etc.) from current and former employees, into a ranking. To read their full methodology, visit their website.

Ranked: America’s Best Places to Work in 2024

Based in Boston, Massachusetts, consulting firm Bain & Company is the best place to work in 2024 according to their employees on Glassdoor. The company’s page specifies what makes them so good: benefits, reliable teammates, growth opportunities, and crucially, strong leadership.

Here’s America’s top 15 best places to work in in 2024.

Chipmaker Nvidia, whose stock has been on a tear in the last year, ranks second. Reviews cite work flexibility, workplace culture, and of course, focused leadership. In fact, Jensen Huang was recently rated America’s most popular CEO by professional social networking site Blind.

Three mid-sized tech companies, ServiceNow (cloud computing), MathWorks (mathematical computing software), and Procore Technologies (construction management software), round out the top five best workplaces in America.

Ranked in sixth is a break from the norm so far: beloved fast food place, In-N-Out Burger.

Missing from 2024’s list is Google which has dropped to 26th from eigth place in 2023. By doing so: no Big Tech company features in the top 15 best places to work for the first time in five years.

In fact, Big Tech does surprisingly poorly on these rankings despite the record profit and revenue they pull in every year.

Tech & Consulting Losing Sheen

A chart showing Glassdoor's rankings of major tech and consulting companies on their Best Places to Work list since 2019.

Apple for example has never been ranked higher than 31—which they achieved back in 2021.

Microsoft and Meta have done better in the past, but together with Google have slid down Glassdoor’s rankings rapidly, in conjunction with the recurring mass layoffs they’ve executed in the last two years.

And while Bain & Co head this year’s list, other major players in the same space—Boston Consulting Group and McKinsey & Company—are now at their worst ranks since 2019.

Smaller consulting firms have been struggling in the last year or so, as higher interest rates have hit everything from technology companies, to banks, to real estate conglomerates—all usual clients for consulting companies.

The Largest U.S. Corporations by Number of Employees

Revenue and profit are common measures for measuring the size of a business, but what about employee headcount?

To see how big companies have become from a human perspective, we’ve visualized the top U.S. companies by employees. These figures come from companiesmarketcap.com, and were accessed in March 2024. Note that this ranking includes publicly-traded companies only.

Data and Highlights

The data we used to create this list of largest U.S. corporations by number of employees can be found in the table below.

CompanySectorNumber of Employees
WalmartConsumer Staples2,100,000
AmazonConsumer Discretionary1,500,000
UPSIndustrials500,000
Home DepotConsumer Discretionary470,000
ConcentrixInformation Technology440,000
TargetConsumer Staples440,000
KrogerConsumer Staples430,000
UnitedHealthHealth Care400,000
Berkshire HathawayFinancials383,000
StarbucksConsumer Discretionary381,000
Marriott InternationalConsumer Discretionary377,000
CognizantInformation Technology346,600

Retail and Logistics Top the List

Companies like Walmart, Target, and Kroger have a massive headcount due to having many locations spread across the country, which require everything from cashiers to IT professionals.

Moving goods around the world is also highly labor intensive, explaining why UPS has half a million employees globally.

Below the Radar?

Two companies that rank among the largest U.S. corporations by employees which may be less familiar to the public include Concentrix and Cognizant. Both of these companies are B2B brands, meaning they primarily work with other companies rather than consumers. This contrasts with brands like Amazon or Home Depot, which are much more visible among average consumers.

A Note on Berkshire Hathaway

Warren Buffett’s company doesn’t directly employ 383,000 people. This headcount actually includes the employees of the firm’s many subsidiaries, such as GEICO (insurance), Dairy Queen (retail), and Duracell (batteries).
