Bain & Company, the management firm based in Boston, has once again topped Glassdoor’s annual list of the 100 best places to work.

The consultancy, one of the largest in the world, has been a fixture near the top of the list since it debuted in 2009, claiming the number one spot several times along the way.

“COVID-19 is in the driver’s seat and every employer has been impacted. This year’s winning employers have proven, according to employees, that even during extraordinary times, they’ll rise to the challenge to support their people,” said Glassdoor CEO Christian Sutherland-Wong.

Cambridge-based software company Hubspot also scored high marks at No. 4. It was No. 1 in 2020.

Boston Consulting Group, another of the major consulting firms, landed at No. 12 on the list. MathWorks, the mathematical computing software company headquartered in Natick, is at No. 25. Market research company Forrester, headquartered in Cambridge, sits at No. 32, and Massachusetts General Hospital is No. 74.

Several mainstay tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Microsoft, which have offices around Kendall Square in Cambridge, are also high up the list.

Thrasio, a Walpole ecommerce company that buys businesses that sell on Amazon, made it on a separate Glassdoor list of the top 50 small and medium-sized workplaces.

Glassdoor’s lists are compiled based on employee ratings and reviews submitted to the website.
