Are you looking for flexbility? Do you want to bring your Wheeton Terrior to work with you? Or, is an onsite gym what attracts you to a company?
Even during tough ecnomic times, employers act like they want to offer work life balance but in some instances, it's all talk.
Now, Glassdoor.com has released a new list of the top 25 employers for work-life balance. Glassdoor is a website that offers insight into careers and companies, as well as job listings. This is the first year it has produced such a list, which is based on survey results from more than 150,000 employees who work or have worked at 36,000 companies. Many of the companies on the list are hiring.
"A lot of companies talk about a good work-life balance," says Robert Hohman, CEO and co-founder of Glassdoor. "But not that many deliver. The [companies] on this list actually deliver."
Here's Glassdoor's full list of companies with the best work-life balance:
1. Nestlé Purina Petcare Company
3. SAS Institute
5. United Space Alliance
6. Slalom Consulting
9. Susquehanna International Group
11. Mentor Graphics
14. Agilent Technologies
15. Turner Broadcasting
17. Southwest Airlines
18. General Mills
19. Biogen Idec
23. MTV Networks
25. National Instruments
Readers, how important do you think this list is to new hires? Would someone turn down a job at a company that doesn't value work life balance?
