Glassdoor has included Redmond-based Aegis Living on its Top 50 Best Places to Work in 2017 from a list of more than 600,000 companies.

Aegis Living’s rank in the Top 50 marks the first time that a senior living company has been named on the list. Aegis Living is a leader in senior living in Washington, California and Nevada with more than 2,200 employees.

Aegis Living ranked No. 46 in companies with 1,000-plus employees (a 4.2 rating).

“In our society, the cultural Goliath is a high-tech business. We’re a high-touch business, nurturing more than 2,000 seniors. We’re amazingly honored to be named as a Best Place to Work. Our employees deserve this award. They love our residents and value their wisdom. They make our high-touch culture an oasis in a high-tech world,” said Aegis Living Founder and CEO Dwayne Clark. “We’re honored they chose a career with us.”

Employees posting on Glassdoor most frequently wrote about their passion for the mission and the seniors they serve.

• “I find joy in working with my residents. I like to make them laugh, sing, and dance.”

• “I work for an awesome and amazing company. I have the support I need to be successful.”

• “Teams in the communities love their jobs and think of them more as missions rather than jobs.”

The Best Places to Work are determined using mostly anonymous company reviews shared by U.S. based employees between Nov. 2, 2015 and Oct. 30, 2016.
