New rankings: Top 25 companies to work for in the US

The pandemic has changed the way we work. While people have been going back to the office, some jobs have become permanently remote. Offices have moved into smaller spaces and most meetings are still taking place virtually.

For those of you going back to the office, you may be worried about home security. The good news is you can keep an eye on things from work. Tap or click here to see how.

LinkedIn put out its annual list of the best companies at which to grow your career. We’ll give you a rundown of the top five and then some. Did yours make the list? Check it out below.

Where did this come from?

LinkedIn skipped the list last year, but it’s back for 2021. The list consists of companies that the employment social network believes are the best for moving up the ladder. LinkedIn arrived at the results using these seven pillars: “ability to advance, skills growth, company stability, external opportunity, company affinity, gender diversity and educational background.”

Each company on the list must have had at least 500 employees by Dec. 31 of last year and have had staff reductions of no more than 10% in 2020. Only parent companies made the list. LinkedIn notes that its own parent company, Microsoft, was omitted from the results but that it would have claimed the number two spot.

1. Amazon

The retail giant hired 400,000 people in the U.S. last year and currently has 30,000 more openings available. The company’s remote onboarding system reduces the amount of time it takes to get started. It now takes just four days for new hires to get the paperwork done and get their Amazon laptop delivered.

In-demand jobs include Health And Safety Specialist, Station Operations Manager and Learning Manager.

2. Alphabet

Google’s parent company is looking to add 10,000 new full-time jobs in the U.S. The Android app ecosystem employed 1.9 million people in 2020 and YouTube created 345,000 jobs for Americans.

Alphabet is looking to fill these spots: Digital Specialist, Field Sales Specialist and Business Systems Analyst.

3. JPMorgan Chase & Co.

JPMorgan Chase reported revenues of $123 billion in 2020. The Big Four bank is offering 300 accredited skills and education programs to its employees. Customer-facing employees have had their earnings increased to $16-20 an hour.

Jobs in demand at JPMorgan include Market Specialist, Software Engineering Specialist and Mortgage Underwriter.

4. AT&T

AT&T saw hundreds of retail store closures during the pandemic and thousands of employees lost their jobs, though many in retail were offered jobs elsewhere in the company. The telecommunications conglomerate is shifting focus to its wireless and WarnerMedia businesses.

The top three jobs to look for at AT&T are Service Analyst, Trading Analyst and Investment Specialist.

5. Bank of America

The second Big Four bank on the list reassigned more than 20,000 of its employees, such as the Paycheck Protection Program, in 2020. This helped get more loans out to small businesses and increased the availability of call centers as fewer clients came into the bank’s brick-and-mortar locations.

In-demand jobs at BOA include Trading Analyst, Investment Specialist and Financial Management Analyst.
