SAS Institute

The analytics software company topped the list. SAS employs more than 13,000 people, and tries to show that they care about each and every one. Each month, the CEO hosts "Conversations Over Coffee" to discuss any topics employees bring to the table, in a very non-pressure filled way. Very cool. Photo: Glassdoor.com

Google

Surprise, surprise--Google is awesome. The Silicon Valley-based company ranked number two on the list. Part of the reason is the company's "CareerGuru" program, in which executives are matched with employees to provide confidential, one-on-one career coaching and guidance around the subjects of work-life balance and personal and professional development, among others.

Kimberly-Clark

The paper and hygienic products company employs 58,000 people. Each new hire receives a welcome package in the mail that contains information about the job and company, an email from their "Godfather," or mentor, and a key, symbolic of opening "the door of the Best Company.” Adorable.

Microsoft

The IT and software company employees more than 96,000 people. It made the list because of the benefits employees enjoy, and its commitment to getting more women to pursue careers in technology.

Gore made the list for how they treat their associates. Every employee has a sponsor who mentors, coaches and commits to helping that person succeed within the company.

Diageo

Diageo is a UK-based alcoholic beverages company. Some of their brands include Johnnie Walker, Ciroc and Jose Cuervo. So basically, they're the people responsible for most of your hangovers. Despite that, their employees seem to love them. One employee said in the survey, “I consider myself to be a Diageo ‘lifer.’ I have been here 10 years and I cannot imagine working anywhere else!" The company and its employees participate in events and fundraisers to raise awareness and money for the less-privileged each year. Photo: Businessinsider.com
