How 2015's Best Companies to Work For List Compares to Last Year's

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

Glassdoor has revealed the 2015 version of its ‘best places to work’ list, and home-grown companies dominate. Of the top 25 employers in the country, 14 were born and bred in Britain, and 15 failed to make the cut last year. The biggest news, however, is that Google has lost top spot, with Expedia usurping it.

The rankings are based on anonymous reviews from employees, covering key areas including company culture, career opportunities, management, compensation and work-life balance. We’ve listed this year’s winners below, alongside their rating, with the outfit in the corresponding position last year included in brackets.
