Employees at Texas Roadhouse, Inc. (Nasdaq: TXRH) have spoken loudly. According to Glassdoor, a popular career search website, Texas Roadhouse employees voted the company as one of the nation’s Top 50 Best Places to Work.
The Louisville-based company, which ranked #47 on the list, is the only casual dining chain ranked and the only Kentucky company to make the list. Other companies that made the list are Apple, Disney, Facebook, Google, Nike, Twitter, Southwest Airlines, and Starbucks.
Also known as Glassdoor’s Employees’ Choice Awards, the list is based entirely on employee surveys. Winners are determined using feedback employees have voiced on Glassdoor throughout the year.
An anonymous company review survey captures employees’ overall job and company satisfaction, sentiment toward career opportunities, compensation & benefits, work-life balance, and senior leadership.
“Any company can claim they have a great culture, or buy their way onto some bogus list, but where the rubber meets the road is whether employees feel it and enjoy their jobs. This ranking is a testament to the folks in our restaurants who make Texas Roadhouse the best place to work,” said Kent Taylor, founder and CEO of Texas Roadhouse.
