One of the nation's very best places to work is based right here in Austin. Glassdoor has released its annual list of the 50 best places to work, and Keller Williams makes the cut for the first time.

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. 

Keller Williams ranks No. 31 on the list. The company is lauded for its educational training and opportunities for growth, which one employee says are better than any other real estate firm. 

Just down the road, San Antonio favorite H-E-B, which has appeared on the list since 2014, ranks No. 27. On H-E-B's heels is Dallas' Southwest Airlines, taking the 28th spot. Texas Instruments, also headquartered in Dallas, ranks No. 42.

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.
