The polls are closed, the votes counted and winners announced. Rackspace is yet again on Glassdoor’s list of the Top 50 Best Places to Work, coming in at No. 15 for 2013. This marks the third time Rackspace made the list, which is now in its fifth year.
Glassdoor, a jobs and career community, gives out the honor annually and relies solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their job, work environment and company via Glassdoor’s anonymous online company review survey.
Close to half a million company reviews were submitted by employees to Glassdoor during the past 12 months to help put their employers in the running for the awards. The Glassdoor company review survey asks employees to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation and benefits, work/life balance and senior management, as well as culture and values.
The list was compiled using Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, and the overall ranking was determined according to each company’s overall Glassdoor rating. For the purpose of this report, the overall rating is the cumulative average rating from U.S.-based employees who elected to participate in the survey between November 23, 2011 and November 13, 2012.
