One of the nation's very best places to work is based right here in San Antonio. Glassdoor has released its annual list of the 50 best places to work, and H-E-B makes the cut once again.

The 2017 rankings "rely solely on input from employees who elected to anonymously submit a company review on Glassdoor," notes the recruiting website. To qualify for the list, large U.S. companies had to have at least 75 Glassdoor-approved company and workplace factor ratings, an employer rating of at least 3.51, workplace factor ratings of at least 2.85, and at least 1,000 employees. 

H-E-B, which has appeared on the list since 2014, ranks No. 27 for 2017. San Antonio's favorite supermarket is lauded for its fantastic culture and hard-working partners.

On H-E-B's heels is Dallas' Southwest Airlines, taking the 28th spot. Texas Instruments, also headquartered in Dallas, ranks No. 42. And just up the road, Austin-based real estate firm Keller Williams ranks No. 31. It's the company's first time to appear on the list.  

The best place to work in the U.S.? Boston's Baine & Company, which also boasts the No. 1 CEO in 2016, according to Glassdoor.
