For women, choosing a company that is a great fit all around is important. Factors include equal pay, workplace safety, the social environment, opportunities for leadership and company growth.

On Monday, the independent ratings company InHerSight will release a list of top companies to work for in Charlotte, according to women. CharlotteFive has received an exclusive first look at the list.

Durham-based InHerSight provides a resource and platform for women around the United States to research, and ultimately rate, various companies. “You can think of us as the Glassdoor for women, but with more detailed data on companies,” said CEO Ursula Mead.

There are over 100,000 companies listed on the website; thousands of women rate their employers daily.

Missing from the list: Big companies with headquarters here

As CharlotteFive examined the list of top Charlotte employers, we noticed: A lot of the bigger companies headquartered here didn’t make the top 30.

“This isn’t surprising — several things can contribute to that, such as the type of industry and the location of a company,” Mead said. “Also, many of these companies aren’t under the same pressure to develop equal opportunities as companies based in places like California.”

While the major banks may not be listed, finance in general will always remain a top-rated industry for women, Mead said. There have been lots of improvements over the years, including women being appointed to high-ranking positions.
