For the past two years, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has cracked the top 25 on Glassdoor's Best Places to Work Employee's Choice list. In 2015, the Church landed spot 22; in 2016, the Church came in 19th.
This year, the Church continued its pattern of excellence, once again ranking as the 19th best place in the nation to work on Glassdoor, as well as being featured on Business Insider. Instead of analyzing numbers or sales, this list bases ranking on employees' feedback and reviews as well as salaries offered, jobs available, and benefits. Overall, the LDS Church received a 4.5 rating out of five stars.
Of the 453 reviews given by employees of the Church, some of the most common positive feedback was that the Church provides a "good work-life balance" and "the benefits and work environment are fantastic."
