If you are one of those students that have been balancing your studies with work experience (internships or co-ops), you may be finding yourself in the midst of completing your final course credits now (in December) instead of in the spring.
In that case, you might be interested to know which companies are listed on Glassdoor's annual "Best places to work in Canada", as you embark on a new year and the next step of your personal and professional journey.
What's the difference between Glassdoor's list and the myriad of other articles out there extolling the virtues of different companies? Glassdoor's results are based directly on the employees that work at those companies. So you could say, you're getting an inside scoop direct from the source.
The good news this year is that the companies represent a wide range of industries, from health care to restaurants, and retail to technology.
Employees weigh in on everything from compensation and benefits, leadership, work/life balance, and company culture and values among other criteria.
Two of Canada's biggest financial institutions, RBC and TD made the list this year along with the usual technology suspects, Microsoft, SAP and Ubisoft.
