Top Entry Level Employers of 2015

1. Employee Reviews

  • 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.  If analysts like the stock, then odds are that the company is growing (investors love future growth).  If the company is growing, there is potential for career growth.

3. Customer Satisfaction

  • The ranking also takes into consideration customer satisfaction. If a customer is satisfied with the product then odds are you are learning valuable customer service skills.  In this compilation customer satisfaction is measured using Yelp.com. The Yelp score is compiled by taking the largest sample of four major U.S. cities.  The average was calculated and used for all reviews.


How the ranking was determined
