Others include such notables as Adobe, Uber, Workday, ADP, Netflix, AT&T, IBM, Baylor Scott & White Health and Fidelity Investments. UT Health San Antonio, which employs more than 8,500, ranks 86th overall.

This set of Comparably Awards are derived from sentiment ratings provided by employees who anonymously rated their employers on Comparably.com during November 2022-November 2023.
Rankings were determined based on a series of questions in yes/no, true/false, 1-10 scale, and multiple-choice format. The answer to each question was given a numerical score and then compared to companies of similar size.
There were no fees or costs associated with participating, nor was nomination required. To qualify, large employers must have met a minimum of 75 employee participants, with additional weight given to companies with more employee participation relative to their company size.
The final data set was compiled from 15 million ratings across 70,000 U.S. companies.
