With many positions in technology expected to grow in the next decade, companies will be expanding their labor pools and will need to work hard to maintain its culture to retain employees.

LinkedIn released the Top 50 U.S. Companies of 2017 list where people want to work. Data was gathered from their platform which included the number of people applying for jobs at companies, how many non-employees are viewing and asking to meet with a certain company’s employee, and if employees are sticking with their job. The analysis was only conducted on companies with over 500 employees within the last 12 months.

With more tech-focused positions coming in the next decade, there is no surprise that more technology companies continue to be a focal point for employment. However, some companies on this list might surprise you as a desirable place to work considering the public outcry and media attention that some of these companies have faced with regard to diversity in tech, treatment of women or business practices.
