How Comparably came up with this ranking

Not only are things like career growth opportunities and strong company leadership important aspects of finding a job and working at a company you love, but so is getting paid what you deserve and being offered a solid compensation package. 

"Employees from the top-notch companies on our annual Best Compensation list say they feel valued and more motivated to do a great job because their organizations are invested in them to help drive the business forward," Comparably CEO Jason Nazar said in a press release shared with Insider.

To find the top large companies, or companies with over 500 employees, Comparably used anonymous ratings from employees regarding company compensation. Questions included things "Do you believe you're paid fairly?" as well as other questions about other components of compensation packages. Ratings were collected over 12 months, starting with September 17, 2020.

All information, including industry categories and anonymous employee quotes, were shared with Insider from Comparably. The full list, as well as the ranking for small and midsize companies, can be found on Comparably here.
