Employees have spoken, and the highest-rated large companies for compensation and benefits in the U.S. are Google, Facebook and Microsoft.
That's according to the latest salary survey by the job-hunting website Comparably, which compiled data from 10 million ratings across 50,000 U.S. companies.
At the top of the list for smaller companies is the San Francisco-based lending company Upgrade, the finance company Nerdwallet and the sales software platform Highspot, according to employees.
Workers were asked questions like, "How often do you get a raise?" and "Are you satisfied with your benefits?" To qualify, large companies with more than 500 employees had to have a minimum of 75 employees participate in the anonymous survey. Smaller companies with under 500 employees had a minimum of 25 employee participants.
Most employees (82%) at the large companies on the list said they felt they were paid fairly at work compared to 94% of workers at the top smaller companies. By contrast, 47% of all the workers surveyed by Comparably say they feel as though they are fairly compensated.
