Among large companies, a developer and marketer of marketing and sales software products is the best place to work in America.

But a fast-food restaurant chain isn’t far behind.

HubSpot took top honors in Glassdoor’s annual list of the best places to work in America, according to employees themselves. And somewhat surprisingly, In-N-Out Burger earned a lofty fourth-place finish in the rankings.

Glassdoor ranked 100 companies with more than 1,000 employees. The salary data website says this year’s winners share some attributes, including “promoting transparency with employees, offering career growth opportunities, and providing work driven by impact and purpose.”

Glassdoor lauds Cambridge, Massachusetts-based HubSpot as a “culture carrier with unlimited PTO, empowering leadership, and smart, supportive colleagues.” It also praises the company for providing a work atmosphere that promotes “being humble, empathetic, adaptable, remarkable and transparent.”

Meanwhile, In-N-Out Burger receives high marks for “very flexible scheduling and understanding supervisors.”

The top 10 honorees in Glassdoor’s “Best Places to Work 2020” were:

  1. HubSpot
  2. Bain & Company
  3. DocuSign
  4. In-N-Out Burger
  5. Sammons Financial Group
  6. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
  7. Intuitive Surgical
  8. Ultimate Software
  9. VIPKid
  10. Southwest Airlines

Glassdoor also released a separate list of the best small and medium-sized companies to work for in America, according to employees. That list focused on workplaces with fewer than 1,000 employees. The top five finishers were:

  1. Life.Church
  2. CrossCountry Consulting
  3. 15Five
  4. IGNW
  5. BambooHR

How to find the best job for you

Glassdoor’s list is a reminder that work doesn’t have to be drudgery. It is a point we recently made in “30 Fun Jobs That Also Pay Well,” in which we highlighted more than two dozen jobs we described as “anything but tedious”:

“To be clear, these occupations aren’t necessarily stress-free and may require hard work. However, they can result in a good income while letting you do work you love.”
