Top 10 companies for great communicators

Communication is important in any relationship—including the relationship you have with your employer.

And like in every strong relationship, good communication needs to go both ways. You need to be able to effectively communicate your ideas, concerns, and requests with the people you work with, just like your manager needs to be able to give you clear instructions, helpful feedback, and positive encouragement. And some best-in-class companies understand the value of communication in the workplace.

Recently, Monster partnered with employee-review platform kununu to identify the workplace factors that workers rate as most important to their job satisfaction. Using kununu’s star rating system—1 (low) to 5 (high)—we identified the top companies with a 4-star rating or higher for communication and then rounded up the jobs they’re hiring for on Monster.

The winners are a diverse mix including everything from IT to restaurants. But don’t just take our word that these companies know how to communicate. Take it from the people who know best: current and former employees who communicated their reviews on kununu’s site. Check out the full list below to see if we can talk you into working for one of the companies below.
