The comprehensive list ranges across all job industries and is based on a survey of over 12,000 employees at large companies with over 500 employees.

According to the report, the employees were asked to "rate how likely they were to recommend their current employer, and could recommend employers other than their own."

So these company recommendations are basically water cooler talk from your future co-workers.
