Check out 8 of the best places to work in Utah

Some of the best places to work across the country include several tech companies, some of which have locations and offices in the Salt Lake Valley.

Glassdoor, an information resource for employees, employers and job hunters, recently revealed its list of best companies to work for. The list is based on customer reviews posted on Glassdoor, specifically from Nov. 2, 2015, to Oct. 30, 2016, according to Mashable.

Leading the way this year was Bain & Company, with Facebook securing the second spot. The social network’s success is a sign that the tech industry has offices that employ happy workers, Mashable said.

Glassdoor's Allison Berry told Mashable that tech companies "really pioneered this whole idea of providing really fantastic benefits and offering very competitive compensation. It’s been interesting to see other companies that are outside of the space following through.”

Though Facebook ranked in the No. 2 spot, it was far from the only tech company to make the list. Google, LinkedIn and Adobe, which has an office in Lehi, all made the list. Apple, Microsoft and Texas Instruments were also ranked.

As we mentioned earlier, some of these fun workplaces are located — or have offices — in the state of Utah. Here’s a look at eight of those companies that made the list that have a stake in the Beehive State.

The LDS Church saw a jump in the rankings this year, going from No. 22 in 2016 to No. 19 this year. Reviewers on Glassdoor said businesses owned by the LDS Church serve as a great launching pad into the job market.

21. Delta Air Lines

Salt Lake City often calls Delta its “hometown airline,” according to the Deseret News. And while big projects are on the way to increase Delta flights from Utah, the company has won over the rest of the nation, landing the 21st spot on the Glassdoor list.

33. Trader Joe’s

Trader Joe’s doesn’t seem like a bad place to work, either. Reviews say the minimarket offers a great work environment. However, multiple reviews said management created problems. Trader Joe’s also offers a number of Utah locations.

34. Costco Wholesale
