The 25 Best Companies to Work For

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Work. We all have to do it, but some companies know how to make it more enjoyable than others.

We spend more than 100 hours each year just commuting to work, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, so let's not even try to calculate how many hours an average American spends in their lifetime at the office.

Your workplace is like a second home and co-workers are like neighbors. With so much time and energy spent at work, why not be somewhere you can truly be happy?

Glassdoor compiled a list of the best companies to work for based on employee reviews and ratings in categories such as how satisfied they are with their company, CEO, career opportunities, office culture, salary and work-life balance.

So whether you're a full-fledged businessman (or woman) or a fresh-faced college graduate, check out these 25 best companies to work for in 2014. Can you guess which companies made it on the list? Just a hint, the words "information technology" and "5000+ employees" come up a lot. And if you're already working at one of these, lucky you!
