H-E-B beat out Apple and Facebook on a new list of top workplaces.
On Tuesday, Glassdoor announced the winners of its annual Employees’ Choice Awards, honoring the Best Places to Work in 2021. The awards are based on anonymous feedback by employees about their work environment and employer.
H-E-B came in at No. 10 on the 100 Best Places to Work list, for companies with 1,000 or more employees. The San Antonio-based grocer rose seven spots from its place on last year’s ranking.

“COVID-19 is in the driver’s seat and every employer has been impacted. This year’s winning employers have proven, according to employees, that even during extraordinary times, they’ll rise to the challenge to support their people,” said Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor chief executive officer, in a statement.
Early in the pandemic, H-E-B temporarily bumped the pay of hourly employees by $2 an hour as they worked to keep shelves stocked. In October, the company gave employees a $500 bonus for their contributions.
Bain & Company, a Boston-based management consulting firm, earned the top spot on Glassdoor’s ranking, followed by tech company NVIDIA and restaurant chain In-N-Out.
H-E-B ranked ahead of Facebook (No. 11) and Apple (No. 31), as well as competitors Trader Joe’s (No. 35) and Wegmans Food Markets (No. 36).
One anonymous H-E-B employee review raves about an “awesome manager” and “great pay with regular raises,” but warns that the store gets busy and customers “aren’t always the nicest.”
Houston’s MD Anderson Center Center also made the list, coming in at No. 90.
