There’s a lot to do in Buffalo, like checking out all the great restaurants, enjoying the local culture, taking a walk through the town’s parks and museums, and overall just immersing yourself in all the stuff that makes Buffalo…well, Buffalo.

All the great things that make Buffalo home to thousands of families and individuals also make it a haven for job searchers of all stripes — some looking for the very first time, others seeking a change of pace, and others still who are desperately calling every business they can find and hoping that their next big interview will be “the one.”

But there are new companies springing up across the Buffalo area all the time, and this begs an important question for job searchers: which companies are the best for employees to work for?
