Slalom Consulting CEO Brad Jackson.

Five Seattle-area tech companies made Glassdoor’s annual Best Places To Work list for 2019.

Slalom Consulting was the highest-ranked company, coming in at No. 14 overall. Slalom works with clients such as Alaska Airlines, Hyatt, and Teradata to solve problems across the digital landscape. Its CEO and co-founder, Brad Jackson, ranks among the top CEOs on Glassdoor.

Microsoft (No. 34); T-Mobile (No. 59); Costco (No. 79); and Expedia (No. 92) followed. There were seven Seattle-area tech companies on the list last year.

There were 28 tech companies that made the list overall, down from 29 last year. Videoconferencing juggernaut Zoom dethroned Facebook as the top tech company. Facebook ranked No. 1 for five of the past eight years.

Bain & Company took the No. 1 spot overall for the fourth time. Bain & Company, Google and Apple are the only companies to make Glassdoor’s list of 100 companies all 11 years. Here’s how the top 10 fared:

1. Bain & Company
2. Zoom Video Communications
3. In-N-Out Burger
4. Procore Technologies
5. Boston Consulting Group
6. LinkedIn
7. Facebook
8. Google
9. lululemon
10. Southwest Airlines

To compile the Top 100 Best Places to Work list, Glassdoor pulls data from surveys that ask U.S.-based employees about career opportunities, compensation, senior management, work/life balance, culture, and more. Companies are required to have at least 1,000 employees and 75 company reviews on Glassdoor, which uses an algorithm to calculate the rankings that assesses the quantity, quality and consistency of Glassdoor-approved company reviews shared by employees between October 23, 2017 and October 21, 2018.

Glassdoor, which was acquired for $1.2 billion earlier this year, also offered up a list of the best small and medium places to work. Seattle-based startup Highspot made the cut.
