20 growing US companies to work for if you want job security

We found 20 major US companies with growing workforces where the typical employee sticks around a while.


By Andy Kiersz, Business Insider

When planning a career, job security is one of the many factors that you might be considering. We took a look at which major companies are likely to offer that security.

To get a sense of where employees can expect a long career, we reviewed median job tenure data for Fortune 500 companies based on a study from PayScale. We combined that with estimates of how much total employment at those companies changed between 2015 and 2018, according to Fortune, reasoning that companies with growing workforces are more likely to offer better job security than companies that are expanding more slowly or that have a shrinking number of employees.

Both PayScale's median tenure and Fortune's employment change estimates were available for 176 companies among the top 200 companies on Fortune's 2018 list. We ranked those companies from first to 176th on both measures and then averaged the resulting rankings together to get an overall sense of job security at those companies.
