Method and data source

If you’re searching for a job where you can grow and develop your career, Comparably’s latest list may be helpful for you. Comparably produces different lists each year, from companies with the best leadership teams to places with the best compensation.

The latest ranking from Comparably focuses on where employees say they can grow professionally. To find the best large companies with career growth opportunities (companies with over 500 employees), the career site used anonymous employee ratings. Data was collected over a 12-month period starting at the end of June 2020.

Employees were asked questions like "how often do you get valuable feedback on how to improve at work?" to get a sense of what career growth is like at a company. 

The full list, including the small and midsize company list, is available on Comparably. Employee quotes and industry categories are from Comparably and provided to Insider.
