Madwire, SendGrid make Glassdoor’s list of Best Places to Work

Three Colorado companies have made Glassdoor’s list of Best Places to Work in 2018, including a business from Fort Collins.

The ratings are Glassdoor’s 10th Employee’s Choice Awards, and recognize the top 100 large companies and top 50 small- and medium-sized businesses in the U.S.

In the large companies category, Centennial-based Fast Enterprises comes in at No. 25, with an overall rating of 4.4.

In the small and medium category, Fort Collins-based Madwire was ranked No. 11, with an overall rating of 4.8.

SendGrid, which started as a Boulder company before moving to Denver in May 2016, was ranked No. 31, also with a rating of 4.8.

To create the ratings, Glassdoor used a proprietary algorithm as well as based placement on quantity, quality and consistency of reviews. A certain number of employees had to submit reviews for a company to be eligible, and companies had to receive at least a certain minimum score in all eight workplace attributes judged: overall company rating, career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, senior management, work/ life balance, the ability to recommend to a friend and six-month business outlook.

Glassdoor is one of the world’s largest job sites and has been recognizing the best places to work in North America and Europe for 10 years.
