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.
