It seems a new ranking of employers comes out every month, if not every week.

The latest from Glassdoor stands out, though, as it’s based on what actual employees have said about their employers in reviews.

Additionally, the ninth annual Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards, announced this week, include rankings of companies of multiple sizes across North America and parts of Europe.

At the top of the 2017 list of large U.S. employers — defined as companies with at least 1,000 employees — is Bain & Co. The management consulting firm is the only employer on this list to get a score higher than 4.5 on a 5-point scale.

Additionally, Bain & Co. is now the first employer to rank No. 1 three times (2017, 2014 and 2012) and one of only three employers to make it onto this list for nine years in a row.

At the top of the 2017 list of small and medium U.S. employers — with a near-perfect rating — is Greenhouse Software, which provides recruiting software.

For the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards, companies are ranked based on ratings they’ve received from employees on Glassdoor’s website over the past year. Ratings range from 1 (“very dissatisfied”) to 5 (“very satisfied”). A rating of 3 is considered “OK.”

The 10 highest-ranked large U.S. employers for 2017 are:

  • Bain & Co. (4.6 rating)
  • Facebook (4.5)
  • Boston Consulting Group (4.4)
  • Google (4.4)
  • World Wide Technology (4.4)
  • Fast Enterprises (4.4)
  • In-N-Out Burger (4.4)
  • LinkedIn (4.4)
