Indeed Ranks Micron As A Top Company To Work For In 2016

What are the top companies to work for in America?

It’s an important question, and here at Indeed we have data that can help answer it. In fact, we host over 10 million employee reviews, making Indeed the largest online resource of its kind in the world. We wanted to know which companies have the highest number of satisfied employees, so we crunched the data on the Fortune 500 to identify the 50 with the best reviews—the top 50 companies to work for in America.

After all, with the baby boomers retiring and millennials replacing them as the largest demographic in the workplace, we are witnessing an unprecedented generational and cultural shift. As a result, the question of how to motivate and inspire the changing workforce is central to the future of talent attraction and retention. Cutting-edge firms are already experimenting with a mix of culture and creative perks to keep the brightest and the best engaged and happy at work.

Micron, a Boise Idaho based company, came in ahead of Starbucks, Boeing, and Cummings. It took the rank of 46th best company to work for in the United States.
