Top 25 Companies for Culture & Values 2014

What companies offer their employees the best culture & values? Our friends at Glassdoor have looked at feedback provided by employees of US companies and compiled a list of the top 25.

Twitter comes up top, maybe not surprising given their CEO Dick Costolo used to be a comedian. The usual suspects are all on the list with Google in 3rd spot, Facebook in 5th and South West Airlines in 6th.

Some employee comments from the top 3 companies:

1. Twitter

  • “Team meetings on the roof are the best, great teamwork and a lot of smart people. I love how the 10 core values drive the company to always be better.” – Twitter Software Engineer (San Francisco, CA)
  • “Great culture – people are very smart and willing to help. Everyone is friendly.” – Twitter Account Executive (New York, NY)
  • “Open dialogue & they care about employees, which speaks to following through on their internal values.” – Twitter Account Executive (San Francisco, CA)

2. Edelman

  • “Through the actions of middle to senior management, you are truly made to feel valued and appreciated. Opportunities are everywhere and the culture is laid back and fun.” – Edelman Senior Vice President (Washington, D.C.)
  • “Consistently challenged, but supported. Compensation is above average, and the company culture is amazing.” – Edelman Account Executive (Atlanta, GA)
  • “For people who fit the culture, the ‘entrepreneurial spirit’ is real. The firm provides resources necessary to make good ideas happen.” – Edelman Senior Vice President (New York, NY)

3. Google

  • “The culture is amazing too. Each employee does not mind helping the other out if they are stuck. I feel it is encouraged to reach out to others.” – Google Software Engineer (Mountain View, CA)
  • “A culture of respect, and opportunity to work on interesting things, and interact with many different people.” – Google Senior User Experience Researcher (Seattle, WA)
  • “The idealism is also reflected in the projects that get funded: not so many projects that chase the gimmick-of-the-day; more projects that lay out a vision of a better world.” – Google Staff Software Engineer (Cambridge, MA)
