New year, new… job?
Glassdoor recently revealed its annual list of The 100 Best Places to Work in 2019, which could help those looking to make a move. The ranking was decided based on employee reviews and ratings on Glassdoor, and of the 100 best-reviewed companies to work at, 29 were tech companies.
