Though there are a number of factors that go into deciding whether a job is right for you, company culture plays an essential—albeit sometimes overlooked—part. Fortunately, career site

Indeed

has gone straight to the source and compiled a ranking of America's best workplaces, based on employee feedback, which could help make your next

job search

a whole lot easier. As Thrillist

reports

, Indeed's rankings were based on employees’ reviews on their “overall work experience.” To narrow the field down, Indeed zeroed in specifically on Fortune 500 companies that “have had at least 100 verified employee-submitted reviews posted to Indeed's site in the past two years.” Computer software giant Adobe came out on top, with Facebook and Southwest Airlines not too far behind. Meanwhile, United Airlines and Foot Locker

just

made the cut. You can read the full list of America's top 50 companies below, and read more about Indeed's methodology
