Google also secured the top spot on our newest Employees’ Choice Awards list, recognizing the 25 Best Places to Work in the UK.

Motley Fool claims the No. 1 spot for the second year in a row on Glassdoor survey of 50 Best Small & Medium Companies to Work For (U.S.) list.
The 2015 Employees’ Choice Award winners were finalized based on employee feedback in a Glassdoor survey and the employees were asked what it’s like to work at their company by rating their overall satisfaction as well as workplace factors like work-life balance, compensation and benefits and career advancement opportunities.
The Glassdoor company review survey includes both quantitative and qualitative questions designed to capture a genuine and authentic inside look at what it’s like to work at particular jobs and companies.
The survey asks employees to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation, benefits, work/life balance, senior management, as well as culture and values.
In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their companies as well as any downsides.
The Best Places to Work are determined using company reviews shared by U.S.-based employees who elected to participate in the survey between Nov. 13, 2013, and Nov. 2, 2014.
To be considered for the large category, a company must have at least 1,000 or more employees and have received at least 50 company reviews from U.S.-based employees during the window of eligibility. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
