Time for a new job?

If the coming change in calendar year has you itching to do something different, jobs and recruiting site Glassdoor has you covered with this year’s Employees’ Choice Awards, which features the 100 best places to work in 2018 across the US.

To find the companies with the most satisfied workers, Glassdoor scanned its massive database of company reviews and ratings from current and former employees.

Reviews include employees’ opinions on some of the best reasons to work for their employer, any downsides, advice to management, and whether they’d recommend their employer to a friend, as well as ratings on how satisfied they are with their employer overall, their CEO, and key workplace attributes like career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture, and values.

Based on employees’ reviews, companies received overall ratings on a scale of one to five, with five representing the most satisfied employees. (While Glassdoor’s calculations extend beyond the thousandth to determine final rank order, ratings displayed are limited to one decimal space.)

Though tech companies are renowned for their employee perks and compensation, companies from all kinds of industries — from retail to healthcare to finance and more — are beloved by their employees.

"It’s encouraging to see non-tech employers rank so highly on the list because it shows people that all industries have companies that are best places to work and are also progressive and forward-looking when it comes to how they approach the employee experience," Glassdoor CEO cofounder Robert Hohman told Business Insider.

"This includes offering some great benefits and perks for their employees," Hohman said. "We should expect this trend to only rise, though tech has always paved the way in terms of innovative people and HR practices."

Hohman said that, regardless of industry, a few strong themes stood out among this year’s winners.

"Specifically, employees reported that they love working at companies with mission-driven company cultures, where they have clear career opportunities, and where senior leadership teams make them feel valued and are transparent with how they communicate with employees," he said. "We also saw a trend of employees really appreciating family-friendly benefits, from extended parental leaves to child care reimbursement."
