There’s a lot to do in Nashville, like checking out all the great restaurants, enjoying the local culture, catching a concert, and overall just immersing yourself in all the stuff that makes Nashville…well, Nashville.

The many things that make Nashville home to thousands of people also make it a haven for job searchers of all kinds — some who are 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 Nashville area all the time, and this begs an important question for job searchers: which 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 Nashville, TN.

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

  4. Brilliant Solutions
  5. TechnologyAdvice
  6. The Buntin Group
