These Are the 10 Best Companies for Female Employees

The healthcare industry is embracing Lean In, hard.

Want a job that will treat you like a human and not some cog in the machine? Head to the healthcare industry, which features some of America's best employers for women.

For its annual "100 Best Companies to Work For" issue, Fortune surveyed workers across the country about factors like job satisfaction, company culture, pay, and benefits. Giant (and obvious) companies like Google and Boston Consulting Group topped the overall list, but the results were way different when it came to women-specific benefits. 

The magazine based their female-focused list on the number of women at the company and the number of women in senior management positions. They only allowed companies that offered benefits like job sharing, telecommuting, flexible schedules, and top maternity and adoption benefits.

The result is a list jam-packed with hidden gems—and a lot of healthcare companies. This is likely because industries like healthcare tend to be female-dominated. But it wasn't all hospitals and pharmaceuticals: Norstrom, along with two law firms, also made the list. 

The "mommy track" is not in the vocab at these workplaces, which pride themselves on promoting women and providing great flexibility and benefits for parents.

Here's the top 10 list, via Fortune

  1. Meridian Health 
  2. Children' Healthcare of Atlanta
  3. Perkins Cole 
  4. Alston & Bird 
  5. Novo Nordisk 
  6. Baptist Health South Florida 
  7. Atlantic Health System
  8. Scripps Health
  9. Nordstrom
  10. Wellstar Health System
