Rolex

Overall Rating: 4.1

What Employees Say: A current administrative assistant at Rolex dishes everything you could possibly want to know about the company: “Good medical insurance. You get 12 paid holidays throughout the year, four weeks [of] vacation right off … and they add an extra one after five years of service. You get a watch when you hit 10 years in the company. … You also get a bonus at the end of the year; usually it’s 10 percent. … You never work weekends and there is not much [overtime]. You are out of the office by 5-ish. The company offers a lot of stability, [and] that’s why you see that majority of employees have been in the company for 20-plus years.”

BMW

Overall Rating: 4.0

What Employees Say: In a world where too many of us are bored at work, a former technician promises working for BMW is “not boring at all.” That might be because BMW offers a “fully flexible and inclusive culture,” according to a former human resources advisor. “It was amazing to work in an environment where you are autonomous and trusted.” A former IT support employee also shares that “the pay package is attractive,” a sentiment many others agree with.
