More about the ranking

The rankings were determined from surveys sent to 30,000 employees of large U.S. companies.

Survey respondents were asked to rate their own companies, as well as other companies in their industry they would consider to be excellent employers. Forbes considered employees' willingness to recommend their own employer as the most significant criterion of the assessment.
