Great pay, awesome perks, and management that cares for its employees. Traits such as these helped Google win top honors as the best place to work in 2015.

Glassdoor.com says its annual ranking is based on employees’ input about their job, work environment and company. Business Insider reports:

“Our list is incredibly useful for anyone planning to search for a new job in 2015,” explains Glassdoor community expert Scott Dobroski. “And unlike any other workplace awards list, ours is entirely based off of feedback from those [who] know a company best — the employees.”

Employees used a five-point scale to rate how pleased they are with the overall company, CEO performance, and workplace attributes such as compensation, culture, career opportunities and work-life balance, BI said.

Glassdoor’s top 10 places to work in the U.S. are:

  1. Google.
  2. Bain & Co.
  3. Nestle Purina.
  4. F5.
  5. The Boston Consulting Group.
  6. Chevron.
  7. H-E-B.
  8. In-N-Out Burger.
  9. McKinsey & Co.
  10. Mayo Clinic.

Although Google has ranked high on Glassdoor’s list of top 50 best places to work, this is the tech company’s first time in the top spot. Here’s what one employee had to say about Google:

Very smart people, outstanding benefits and perks, excellent salaries, and lots of opportunity to do what you love. Everything you’ve heard about working for Google is true.

According to Forbes, Google has made significant strides to make it a great place to work.

“Google stepped up their game in support of work-life balance and families,” said [Glassdoor CEO Robert] Hohman. “Increased maternity leave, increased paternity leave, reworked on-site day care – they’ve really made an effort to allow people to have strong families as well as give their best to Google. That came through loud and clear and seems to be what pushed them over the edge this year.”
