glassdoor-best places to work 2022Intuitive Surgical, Boston Scientific, Johnson & Johnson and Medtronic were recently named as Glassdoor’s employees’ choice of Best Places to Work in 2022.

Each year, Glassdoor uses feedback that employees have shared on the website over the past year to compile a list of the best places to work for the upcoming year. Employee reviews provide Glassdoor with insights into job and workplace attributes and qualitative feedback about why their employer provides the best place to work and what needs improvement.

Intuitive Surgical ranked 29 out of 100 on the Glassdoor list. The Sunnyvale, California-based company was listed at 41 for the previous year. It received a 4.4 out of 5 star rating over the last year. Some of its top reviews mention a “great work/life balance” with competitive salaries, benefits and stock options. The cons outlined suggest that Intuitive has a “very fast paced environment [with] high-performance expectations.”

Intuitive employed 8,081 employees in 2020 and generated $4.3 billion in revenue or $611,316 per employee.

Boston Scientific was ranked at number 52 out of 100 as one of the best places to work this year. The Marlborough, Massachusetts-based company did not make the cut-off in 2021 and 2020. It received a 4.3 out of 5 star rating on its Glassdoor page. Some of its highlighted pros include “great work/life balance with the opportunity to grow” but its top con is that the night shift can make it difficult to balance work and life.

Boston Scientific employed 36,000 people in 2020 and made $10.7 billion in sales, or $298,194 per employee.

Johnson & Johnson was ranked at number 75 out of 100 on Glassdoor’s list – it ranked at 24 last year. The New Brunswick, N.J.-based company had a 4.3 out of 5 star rating for the last year.
