Earning a Glassdoor Best Places to Work award even once is a huge accomplishment in and of itself -- but winning 11 times? That’s downright exceptional.

This year’s winner, Bain & Company, has done just that. The Boston-based consulting firm beat out hundreds of thousands of employers for the top spot, marking its 11th consecutive year on the Employees’ Choice Awards list.

Bain has ranked No. 1 four times (2012, 2014, 2017, 2019) -- making it the only employer to claim the top spot four times since the Best Places to Work award debuted in 2009 --  and is up from the #2 spot last year. Founded in 1973, Bain currently operates 57 offices in 36 countries and offers its collective knowledge, experience and global network to its clients around the globe.

“It feels fantastic for all of us at Bain & Company to win this top spot,” says Manny Maceda, Worldwide Managing Partner at Bain & Company. “This year our leadership has invested in more frequent communication to share our vision and strategic ambitions for our firm, including a reaffirmation of our company mission. The level of transparency and engagement from firm leadership translates directly to employee enthusiasm and excitement about our business outlook and firm journey.”

Employees at the firm -- known as Bainies -- boast about the high-performance environment with strong emphasis on company culture plus the career-defining perks. From externships -- four to six-month externships at an organization of an employee’s choice related to their professional goals -- to global soccer tournaments, regular team off-sites and happy hours, Bain embodies a modern workplace.
