We all want to work for great employers. It is something our Accounting recruiters hear from candidates all the time, and rightfully so. Perhaps you are currently at a great place to work. Or, maybe you are not satisfied with your current employer.

The quality of an employer is a top reason people think about making a career move. Choosing a great employer is a top consideration if you are considering moving on from a current job. One of the top resources online to check out for employers is Glassdoor. It allows you to check out company reviews and see what other employees have to say about organizations. Each year, Glassdoor comprises a list of the top places to work in Canada.  

Below, our recruiters have curated this list to give you an idea of top employers worth considering.

Our Recruiters’ Thoughts On The Best Places To Work In Canada

As you can see by the list, technology and IT companies dominate the list. Finance companies also make a strong appearance as well. It’s interesting to note that the list of top employers changes greatly by country. For example, if you look at the US List, Gainsight, Box, and Bain & Company are at the top of the list and Google is #8. 

So, company culture, compensation, and work-life balance can vary within an organization by location. The same applies to cities. Working for the same employer in the Toronto office can be very different than if you were in the Vancouver office. As a candidate, it’s important to consider this when considering a career move. It’s not just the company you need to think about. You also need to look deeply into the specific location and people at the location where you will work. 

If you are thinking about making a move to one of these top employers, or any other, please reach out to our recruitment team.
