Chennai: Adobe, Nvidia and Microsoft top the list of leading technology organisations to work for in India, a report has said. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) entered the top 10 in the rankings and was the only public sector firm to feature on the list.

Released by job site -Indeed –  others in the top ten in the list include, SAP, Akamai Technologies, VMware, Cisco, Intel and Citrix Systems Inc. According to the Top-Rated Workplaces: Best in Tech report, as rated by Indian employees, multinational companies continued to dominate the list.

“The top five workplaces on the list are multinational corporations (MNCs), a clear indication that Indian job seekers see greater scope for career advancement and work exposure in large international firms when it comes to the technology sector,” the report said.

The Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) was the highest-ranked Indian organisation at number 10, and the only public sector firm to feature on the list. Some of the other Indian companies that feature in the top 15 list include e-commerce company Myntra and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS).

“In addition to strategic and meaningful workplace programmes, companies that have focused on people management, and contributed to creating a conducive environment for their employees have been highly rated by job-seekers,” managing director, Indeed India, Sashi Kumar, said.

“Apart from competitive remuneration, companies that work to make their employees feel like they work with, and not for the company, create a culture of ownership and instil a sense of loyalty in their employees,” Kumar further added.

A statement from Indeed stated that ‘Top-Rated Workplace’ lists are determined at Indeed’s sole discretion based on user rankings. Indeed used a proprietary algorithm to rank companies using a variety of factors, such as average rating, number of reviews, and the history of job openings. But in general, companies with a large number of high ratings will place higher in the rankings, it said.
