When you’re thinking about making a job move, there are a few things to consider: that the role is a match for your skills (and will offer you a comfortable degree of stretch), the compensation package meets expectations, and that it’s in a location you like. But something else often overlooked and which is super-important is this: will you enjoy working there — what is the culture of the company like?
It’s an important factor to consider for a good overall fit, and to ensure you’ll be happy working there in the long term. That’s why we’ve selected three companies with great employee culture below — and for lots more open roles, check out our Job Board too.
