Glassdoor: The Top 10 Tech Companies To Work For In 2023
Glassdoor says that 41 tech companies made up the 2023 100 Best Places to Work list for several reasons, including a focus on better pay and benefits, diversity, equity and inclusion, and flexible work schedules/a good work-life balance.
Who Made The Cut
Glassdoor this week revealed its annual 100 Best Places to Work list for large, U.S.-based companies. Several large tech giants made the cut, including a brand-new addition to the list that nabbed the top spot.
Glassdoor, a website that allows current and former employees anonymously review companies, uses at least 75 ratings across nine workplace attributes from U.S.-based employees at companies of at least 1,000 employees as requirements for its annual list. The nine workplace attributes that are weighed are career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, diversity and inclusion, senior management, work-life balance, recommend to a friend, six-month business outlook, and overall company rating.

Here are Glassdoor’s top 10 tech companies to work for in 2023, along with their rankings and review excerpts from employees.
Holding steady at No. 19 is Sunnyvale, Calif.-based LinkedIn. The Microsoft-owned company focuses its social network platform on businesses, employee end users and job seekers. Founded in 2002, LinkedIn has since expanded beyond its core focus of networking into job postings, videos, analytics and online learning.
“Work-life balance is incredible here. LinkedIn truly takes care of its employees in more ways than just their salary.”
A newcomer to the annual Glassdoor list, Austin, Texas-based CrowdStrike is making moves in the market with its cloud workload and endpoint security, threat intelligence, and cyberattack response services. Founded in 2011, the company went public in 2019 and has since built out its portfolio organically and through acquisition, having most recently announced its intent to purchase Reposify, a Tel Aviv, Israel-based provider of an external attack surface management (EASM) platform.
“New product offerings and constant growth will keep you busy; lots of opportunities within the company.”
Moving up two spots to No. 14 this year, San Jose, Calif.-based Adobe comes to market with products for creativity, marketing and document management.

“Empathy is a core HubSpot value and the leadership team truly walks the walk.”
Climbing from No. 23 to the top ten this year, Santa Clara, Calif.-based ServiceNow comes to the market with its cloud-based platform to help organizations manage their digital workflows.
