The 20 Best Companies for Working Moms, As Rated by the Women Who Work There (2019)

As rated by mothers who also do paid work

working mom with daughter

Eighty percent of mothers with children aged six to 18 and 70 percent of mothers with children under the age of six also do paid work full-time, yet the American workplace remains largely unfriendly to the working mom. Working mothers are less likely to be promoted and get raises, and are more likely to be judged by their colleagues as being less committed to their jobs—and their families. For working fathers, the opposite is true.

To better understand workplaces that support the wants and needs of working mothers, we sampled our dataset to understand what working mothers want from their employers and identified the companies that over-index for those factors, as ranked by working women.

The companies on our list rank highest for the top five things working mothers want most from their employers:

1. Paid time off

2. Flexible work hours

3. The people you work with

4. Equal opportunities for women and men

5. The ability to telecommute
