LinkedIn draws up a ranking list of the 50 most popular companies each year. In previous editions we found several crypto companies, but this is not the case this year. We see a positive surprise.
The “Top Companies 2019” rankings rank companies based on their popularity among employees. Companies are assessed on the basis of, among other things, the engagement between directors and employees, demand for jobs at that specific company and the general interest in a company. This year Alphabet, the company behind Google, leads the top 50. We find Facebook and Amazon at numbers two and three.
However, we see fewer crypto companies back than before. Only cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase managed to reach the top 50 and is in place 35. Previously, companies such as crypto exchange Gemini and Ripple still made the list.
Interestingly enough, Coinbase does end up above the crypto-skeptic bank in position 44, JP Morgan Chase. With the 35th place, the exchange is also above the tech giant Intel and the social media platform Twitter.
That Coinbase is interesting for employees is mainly due to the high standards that Coinbase implements for employees. For example, employees receive health insurance and women can get $ 5,000 to freeze their ova. The idea behind this is that women can first focus on their career and only then have to think about children.
The employees of Coinbase also have a number of options regarding their salary. For example, they can receive their salary in normal fiat currency, or in bitcoin (BTC) or another cryptocurrency. Allegedly 40% of Coinbase employees receive their salary in cryptocurreny.
