Comparing the latest Price Waterhouse Coopers (PwC) List Of Top 100 Global Software Leaders published in May of this year with current Glassdoor ratings based on employee feedback provides valuable insights into the best software companies to work for in 2013.
The Glassdoor ratings of the percentage of employees who would recommend their employer to a friend and the percentage who approve of their CEO are used in this comparison. A PDF of the PwC Global 100 Software Leaders can also be downloaded here. PwC has done an excellent job of explaining the methodology, and if you’re a fan of research, this report is a great read. None of these companies are a current or previous clients, and I do not hold equity positions in any of them.
The Best Software Companies To Work For
The following table ranks the PWC List of Top 100 Global Software Leaders by the percentage of employees who would recommend their employer to a friend. Agfa HealthCare, CompuGROUP Holding, Constellation Software, DATEV, Hexagon, TOTVS and Visma aren’t included in this table as the number of reviews on Glassdoor are very small.
N/A = CEO not yet rated; N/A (*) = Only 1 review of the CEO
