With the unemployment rate in the United States still worryingly high, many would be happy just to have a steady job. Even better, of course, would be being employed by a company that you actually enjoy working for. To that end, Glassdoor is bringing to light the best places to work—and tech companies dominate that list. Glassdoor's third annual list of Top 25 Companies for Work-Life Balance relies solely on the input of employees who elected to participate in an online anonymous company review survey. The survey gathers employee opinion on some of the best reasons to work for their employer (pros) and some of the downsides (cons). In addition, employees are asked to rate how satisfied they are with their company overall and how well they feel their CEO is leading the company, as well as key workplace attributes like career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, senior management and work-life balance. For this list, companies had to have at least 50 approved work-life balance ratings in the past year to be considered. Work-Life Balance ratings are based on a 5-point scale: 1.0 representing very dissatisfied, 3.0 representing OK and 5.0 representing very satisfied. Here are some of the top tech companies that made this year's list.
