The top universities to work for are a motley bunch. There are dozens of rankings that evaluate university in terms of quality of education or other indicators pertaining to academic results.

The universities were ranked according to the ranking they received on Glassdoor.com, an online community where employees share insight about their place of work. Hundreds of schools were evaluated for a period of 12 months and only universities that received more than 25 reviews were included in the analysis. Respondents were asked to evaluate their employers. The maximum score for a university was 5, which equals to “very satisfying” and the lowest 1 (“very dissatisfying”).
