Work is still challenging for women but some companies are more female-friendly than others.

InHerSight, a job-listing hub that rates a company's "female-friendliness," released a ranking of the top 25 companies for women. The list comes from taking top spots in 16 categories, among them:

  • Equal opportunities for women and men in the form of fair promotions and comparable salaries
  • Strength of maternity and adoptive leave policies
  • Female representation in company leadership

The database has over 100,000 companies total, and millions of women who use the site, according to company data analyst Emily McCrary-Ruiz-Esparza.

Major tech companies like Google and Salesforce made the list, as did financial companies like Intuit and American Express.

The ranking is based on data provided by InHerSight from October 2019. However, McCrary-Ruiz-Esparza said these numbers are always shifting because employees submit their ratings for companies on a rolling basis.

Here are the top 25 companies for working women, with 5 stars being the highest rating:
