Amazon Leads LinkedIn List of Top Companies to Work For

After taking a hiatus in 2020, LinkedIn has released its ranking of the Top 50 U.S. companies at which to build a career. Only five retailers made the cut, but one of them — Amazon — was named number one.

The other retailers in the top 50 were Walmart, at #9; CVS Health, #15; Target, #28; and The Home Depot, #48.

In compiling the rankings, LinkedIn factored in not just a company’s ability to attract top talent but its commitment to investing in its workforce. This new methodology is based on seven key pillars, each linked to a different facet of career progression:

  • Ability to advance;
  • Skills growth;
  • Company stability;
  • External opportunity;
  • Company affinity;
  • Gender diversity; and
  • Educational background.

The overall top 10 companies were:


1. Amazon
2. Alphabet
3. JPMorgan Chase & Co.
4. AT&T
5. Bank of America
6. IBM
7. Deloitte
8. Apple
9. Walmart
10. EY
