If you’re looking for a new job in Dallas, why not start with the employers who do the best job of supporting women in the workplace? 

Companies make our list because women in Dallas who either currently work for or have worked for their organization rate their employer most highly based on 16 factors of female friendliness, such as paid time off, management opportunities, flexible work hours, maternity leave, respectful coworkers, and family growth support—just to name a few.

20 best places to work in Dallas

1. Amrock

4.6 stars

California-based real estate company Amrock ranks number one on our list of the best places to work in Dallas. It gets a just-about-perfect 4.9 stars for its paid time off policy, and 4.8 stars across the board on all career opportunities factors: management opportunities, female representation in leadership, and equal opportunities for women and men.

Amrock also ranks number three on InHerSight’s 2019 list of the best companies for working moms.

CA Technologies gets its highest marks for family support factors, including paid time off, family growth support, maternity and adoptive leave, and flexible work hours. It also ranks number four on our list of the top 20 companies for maternity and adoptive leave.

3. The Boston Consulting Group (BCG)

4.2 stars

Here’s what one former employee writes about working for BCG:

Overall, I consider BCG an excellent place to work for females—both consultants and administrative professionals. Diversity and inclusion are becoming even more important by the day, and there are always mentors, you just have to seek them out. I have since left BCG, and appreciate now more than ever the quality of the people and the supportiveness of the culture!

4. Intuit

4.1 stars

Software company Intuit gets high marks for wellness initiatives, paid time off, maternity and adoptive leave, and great, respectful coworkers. It also makes our 2019 list of the top tech companies where women are happiest with their pay.

We like these reviews from women who have worked at Intuit:

Tech companies are notorious for having an overwhelming male staff. Intuit not only has a higher percentage of women but so many are in leadership roles. I've never felt that my career is at all inhibited for being a woman. I am so proud to work for this company

In my experience, there are few companies who have a culture which invites cooperation, teamwork, and customer satisfaction. Intuit was one of the best. And I would still be with them today if they had not sold off the division. Would work for them again in a heartbeat! Great company

5. American Express 

3.9 stars

Rounding out the top five best companies to work for in Dallas is financial services company AmEx. Women who work here rate it highly for great coworkers, management opportunities, family growth support, and paid time off.

Not only does Fidelity make it into the top 10 best places to work in Dallas, this company also ranks number four on our 2019 list of the top financial services company where women are most satisfied with their pay.

Here’s why one woman likes about working for Fidelity: 

Fidelity is a great place to work for anyone. They are very inclusive of all genders and have great support for women and the LBGTQ community. Healthcare is awesome. I think everyone would agree that the pay isn’t always the highest, but with all of the benefits offered it could actually mean more for some people than If they worked somewhere else. Generally overall very satisfied with my choice of working there.

Navy federal was the best company I ever worked with. They offered competitive pay, opportunities for growth, and good training and opportunities to help you reach your goal for a career. They were very focused on wellness, along with family and individual care. 

They were also very fair with career advancement. I had supervisors, assistant manager, manager, and regional manager who were all women. When I told them I wanted to be in a leadership role, my assistant manager, and manager started working with me to get me better prepared to take on that role. Headquarters also offered courses for you to be able to take, and they required you to write out what your career goals were each year, and they listened to those, and worked with you to help you make those goals.
