The job market in Tampa is very strong. It helps that we can create thousands of jobs just for tourism alone. We also have a lot of career opportunities in healthcare, technology, and education. But who are the best employers in the Tampa Bay area? Forbes recently partnered with Statista to compile their third annual list of America’s Best Employers By State. Keep scrolling to find out the best 7 employers in the Tampa Bay area.

Some of these employers don’t have headquarters in Tampa, or even Florida (like NASA, Costco, Google, Microsoft, just to name a few). But they still hire remotely or have other offices in our city. But we tried to focus our list of employers that are based in the Tampa Bay area, or just outside.

 How did Forbes find this info?

The findings of the list are based on a survey conducted in October through June of 2023. It was sent out to 70,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 500 employees across all 50 states. Forbes says the participants were asked if they would recommend their employers to others, and evaluate them based on other factors including working conditions, diversity, compensation packages, potential for development, company image, and more. By the end of the survey, a total of 1,392 organizations made at least one state on the list. There were some organizations that ranked in multiple states. Check out the full list and more about their methodology here.

Are you happy with your employer?

In the list, Forbes mentioned a recent survey from Pew Research Center that said about half of workers in the U.S. are satisfied with their job. We think the pandemic drastically changed corporate America forever. Does working remotely make a difference? We think it all depends on your job and the tasks asked of you. Kim Parker, Pew’s director of social trends research says “Most say they are highly satisfied with the human side of work—their relationships with their coworkers and supervisor. They are much less satisfied with their compensation and with the opportunities they’re given for promotion or advancement.”
