Charlotte, NC, home of the Panthers and the Hornets, second largest city in the south-eastern US, and — most importantly — the largest metropolitan area in the US to not have a zoo.

Being as it is the 3rd fastest growing city in the US, people are moving to Charlotte in droves. And since that’s clearly not due to all of Charlotte’s great zoos, it’s a reasonable guess to say that a lot of this movement and growth is due to the great employment opportunities that the city presents. But with so many jobs, it begs the question: which of these companies are the best for employees to work for?

We were curious — so, using company scores from websites that aggregate reviews like GlassDoor and Indeed as a baseline, we created our own list of some of the best companies to work for that were based within a 30-mile commute of Charlotte, NC.

The full list can be found further down, but first, here’s a quick top ten.

  1. True Homes, USA
  2. EDU Healthcare
  3. Eastwood Homes
  4. MapAnything
  5. Carolina Panthers
  6. Zenmonics
