A common complaint among millennials is that the companies they might want to work for don’t value the same things. While millennials value things like the flexibility that allows them to prioritize their families over sheer workplace success, many companies seem to want a commitment to the job to come first.
After all, much of the modern job market and company infrastructure was built by baby boomers who came out of the World War II era. Baby boomers tended to have different values and priorities than millennials and were more focused on only workplace success. Let’s look at some of the best companies for millennials looking for a new job and what makes these companies suited to this particular age group according to Forbes.
25. Discover Financial Services
Discover Financial Services is aligned with two incredibly strong values among millennials. These values are giving back to the community and education. Fewer than 50% of millennials believe that companies conduct business ethically and that paints a bad outlook as a result. And over 80% believe that a company’s success should be measured by more than its bottom line.
Discover Financial Services has a program that encourages employees to volunteer in their communities with organizations like Big Brothers and Big Sisters of America. On the education side, Discover provides qualified employees to earn an online bachelor’s degree at the company’s expense, making this nearly as important as workplace success for some.
