- The ratings in this category are based on reviews given by current and former employees on glassdoor.com and indeed.com
2. Analyst Ratings
- The analyst rankings are based on ratings from Marketwatch.com (buy, sell, or hold). Many companies on the list are publicly traded.

How the ranking was determined
- The ranking weights are broken down as follows: The employee reviews based on scores from GlassDoor.com and Indeed.com were given a weight of 40% each. MarketWatch and Yelp represent 10% respectively.
