But which companies do people *actually* want to work for the most? LinkedIn鈥檚 first-ever Top Attractors list gives us a true glimpse into the most popular companies to work for聽around the world.

Top 5 Dream Companies

Well-known tech giants like Google and Facebook round out LinkedIn鈥檚 list, but for seriously good reasons. These companies are fair, offer tons of room for growth, major WFH and vacation flexibility and the perks that have proven to keep people really happy.

1. Google:聽With an聽emphasis on work-life balance, an聽unparalleled opportunity for growth, super smart coworkers and insanely innovative offices all over the world, we totally understand why Google snagged the top spot on the list.

2. Salesforce:聽Steady company growth聽and gorgeous, modern聽offices are only two of the notable things about life at Salesforce. The one聽that rules them all? We think it鈥檚 the major focus on employee health and wellness. Turns out, the team actually consulted with monks when聽building mindfulness areas around the building. That鈥檚 some serious zen.

3. Facebook:聽Connecting the world is no small order, and being a part of the team that helps make it happen is聽an amazing way to spend your professional time. In addition to heaps of more standard benefits, like free food and creative spaces to GSD, Facebook also offers an聽impressive four months of paid parental leave to ALL employees聽around the globe.

4. Apple:聽Super secret, top-notch projects, talented people and tons of flexibility round out Apple鈥檚 list of company qualities that attract star employees. Just as fantastic, the company has made a HUGE push to聽diversify its global team by hiring 65 percent more women in the last year. That鈥檚 what we like to see.

5. Amazon:聽Seattle-based Amazon pays a whopping 95 percent of tuition for in-demand fields as part of the Amazon Career Choice Program, which is just one benefit to working for one of the world鈥檚 most successful Internet companies. Other benefits include WFH flexibility and permission to bring your pup to work. Awwww.

2. Airbnb:聽Travel lovers are a perfect match for this innovative hospitality startup, as each employee gets a聽quarterly travel stipend to stay at Airbnb properties around the world. Have heart eyes? Us too.
