If you’ve ever received “urgent” Slack messages from your boss at 11am on a Sunday or stayed up all night to meet a deadline, then you know damn well that “work-life balance” doesn’t seem to mean much at some companies. Thankfully, job listings site Indeed just made it a little easier to find a better work-life ratio in your life with a new analysis that reveals the companies with the best work-life balance, according to reviews by employees.
In a report published on Tuesday, Indeed identified 15 companies that stand out when it comes to offering a healthy balance between personal and professional for employees, based on data from more than 72 million employee ratings and reviews posted on the site. The new 2018 ranking, like last year's ranking, includes employers from multiple industries, including finance, tech, real estate, and more. This year's top spot goes to Keller Williams Realty, followed by fellow real estate giant Coldwell Banker, and networking/IT leader Cisco to round out the top three.
“As an individual contractor you determine your work day,” a Keller Williams employee said, per the report. “Each day offers learning and continuing education about culture and opportunities.”
