Glassdoor, the employer review site — Yelp for employee reviews, if you will — has come out with its annual listing of top 50 companies to work for, as reviewed by mostly anonymous employees. The top 50 list of large companies to work for — 1,000 or more employees — in 2014 have three travel companies in it: Orbitz, Southwest, and Hyatt. All three were there in last year’s rankings as well, which also included JetBlue and Boeing.
This year Glassdoor also started a new list of medium-sized companies, 250-499 employees, and the top 50 list contains only one travel company: Travelzoo.
