What makes a good US employer?

The annual employee survey by the business magazine Forbes includes a survey of 60,000 employees in American companies with at least 1,000 employees.

The surveyed organizational participants gave feedback on their workplace in terms of working conditions, career development opportunities, diversity, equal treatment, and salaries. They could also recommend other companies as employers.

These are the best employers in the USA in 2022

Forbes' Best US Employers 2022 lists 500 large companies with more than 5,000 employees and 500 mid-sized companies with more than 1,000 employees that received the most recommendations among all respondents.

The ten top-rated large employers in the USA are:

Rank Best large US employers Industry
1 The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Healthcare & Social
2 Southern Company Utilities
3 NASA Aerospace & Defense
4 Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Healthcare & Social
5 Michelin Group Automotive (Automotive and Suppliers)
6 Sherwin-Williams Engineering, Manufacturing
7 Mayo Clinic Healthcare & Social
8 Carvana Retail and Wholesale
9 University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center Healthcare & Social
10 MD Anderson Cancer Center Healthcare & Social

Interestingly, five out of ten top major employers in the USA are from the healthcare sector. This is not only because medicine is one of the strongest employment sectors in the United States, along with education and the service industry.

Above all, the healthcare sector in the US is well-paid. In addition to the top salaries of physicians and anesthesiologists, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, optometrists, physician assistants, midwives, and nursing managers also earn six-figure salaries.

Another interesting insight is a look at the top 10 mid-sized US companies, in which the construction and energy sectors, as well as the IT and software industries, stand out:

Rank Best mid-sized US employers Industry
1 Vera Bradley Clothing, Shoes, Sports Equipment
2 FICO IT, Internet, Software & Services
3 PCL Construction Construction, Oil & Gas Operations, Mining, and Chemicals
4 Penguin Random House Media & Advertising
5 Gentex Automotive (Automotive and Suppliers)
6 Celanese Construction, Oil & Gas Operations, Mining, and Chemicals
7 Caltech Education
8 Advanced Technology Services Business Services & Supplies
9 Aera Energy Construction, Oil & Gas Operations, Mining, and Chemicals
10 Sirius Computer Solutions IT, Internet, Software & Services

That the ratings of foodservice employers have deteriorated under the weight of the pandemic with its surges of layoffs, making them unlikely to appear on Forbes' 2022 lists, is no surprise.

The survey also revealed a major shift in Americans' attitudes towards working from home. Where technologically possible, generous home office arrangements are now commonplace.
