If you’re considering a new job in the new year, you might want to look into Bain & Co. first.

The management consulting firm was recently named the best large employer in the U.S. in Glassdoor’s Employees’ Choice Awards for the 2019 Best Places to Work. The awards are based on employee feedback.

This marks the fourth time that Bain has ranked No. 1 — more than any other employer since the Best Places to Work rankings started in 2009. The company last held the top spot in 2017.

If you prefer a smaller employer, consider Heap. The analytics company ranked No. 1 among small and medium employers in the 2019 awards.

The rankings are based on company reviews that employees shared anonymously on Glassdoor’s website between Oct. 23, 2017, and Oct. 21, 2018. Glassdoor also gives each company a rating based on the quantity, quality and consistency of its reviews.

The top five large employers and their ratings (out of a possible 5) are:

  1. Bain & Co.: 4.6
  2. Zoom Video Communications: 4.5
  3. In-N-Out Burger: 4.5
  4. Procore Technologies: 4.5
  5. Boston Consulting Group: 4.5

The top five small and medium employers and their ratings (out of a possible 5) are:

  1. Heap: 4.9
  2. Horizon Innovations: 4.9
  3. Silverline: 4.9
  4. Marketing 360: 4.9
  5. Digital Prospectors: 4.9

Manny Maceda, worldwide managing partner at Bain, attributes the company’s 2019 ranking to “transparency and nurturing best-in-class team members,” according to Glassdoor.

As Maceda explains it:

“This year, our leadership has invested in more frequent communication to share our vision and strategic ambitions for our firm, including a reaffirmation of our company mission. The level of transparency and engagement from firm leadership translates directly to employee enthusiasm and excitement about our business outlook and firm journey.”
