Texas Has Several of the Best Places to Work in the US
Several of the best places to work in 2018 are either based in Texas or they have Texas locations. If you're looking for a job we'll help connect you.
Glassdoor released its list of the Best Places to Work in 2018, and four companies that are based in Texas made the list. There are others like In-N-Out Burger with locations in Texas, but are based in another state that made the list too. If you're looking for a new job you're in a great place.
Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook made the top spot on the Glassdoor list, and they've been one of the top companies to work for since 2011. The rest of us might spend a good portion of our time at the office on Facebook and we call it multi-tasking, so it's kind of like we work there even if Mark doesn't actually sign our paychecks.
Based on reviews from current and former employees, Glassdoor says these companies have an edge over all the others.
1. Keller Williams - The East Texas offices are part of a huge company that has more than 800 locations across the globe and over 150,000 real estate associates who have the chance to be stakeholders in the company. It formed in 1983, and if you've purchased a home at any point in your life you've probably rubbed elbows with someone associated with Keller Williams in the process. They're good at what they do.
2. Southwest Airlines - Houston and Dallas are two of the biggest hubs for Southwest, and they get props for having fun. I flew Southwest one year on my birthday and they sang to me over the intercom and instead of a cake, they presented me with a bag full of those honey roasted peanut snack packs. They filled up an air sickness back with nuts and put a smiley face on it. It was memorable to say the least.
3. H-E-B - They've got stores in more than 150 cities in Texas, including several in East Texas of course. H-E-B fans love the deli, selection, and the prices, and the people who work there seem to take pride in their work. The company says it gives employees the chance to build a career and be part of the innovation process as the company grows. And oh, those deli tortillas are good.
4. Texas Health Resources - The web of hospitals created by Texas Health Resources just keeps growing, and some of the stand-alone ER locations that were built by other companies have been purchased by Texas Health Resources over the past couple of years. It's a huge network that's most concentrated in Dallas-Fort Worth. With nurses in high demand, now is a good time to seek them out and apply.
Other companies that will be among the best places to work in 2018 include Hubspot, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Nestle Purina, Intuit, Microsoft, and Hilton.
We just hope you love your job! And if you don't, it looks like Texas will have some big growth opportunities waiting for you in 2018.
