If you’re in the financial industry and are thinking about making a change, you must take a look at this list!

To help you scope out the highest rated companies, we took a dive into our data of thousands of employee reviews in the financial industry. Folks rated how they felt about their job, culture, co-workers, salary and other key factors that directly influence their happiness.

Voila! The following five companies take the top spots! So, if you’re ready to make a change, consider applying to the following companies:

1. Prudential

Prudential careers are challenging, with broad opportunities for career growth. The best part? The Prudential company culture is like being part of a family.

“I love the feeling of being part of a family. My department is like one big family. We all work together to make things work,” a senior business analysis associate writes in one review.

Plus, a career with Prudential means a career that caters to your strengths. Whether you’re deeply interested in managing money, pursuing new business, or dealing with clients, you can find a career path that’s tailored to your financial passion. This kind of opportunity doesn’t come a dime a dozen!

2. Fidelity

Fidelity prides itself on its passion for innovation. One of its larger goals is to transform business through technology. Plus, it’s one of the largest mutual funds and services group in the entire world!

The perks are particularly notable.  “Great benefits. They paid for my health membership,” says one financial services representative.

So, if you have a dual passion for both emerging tech and finance, Fidelity is an awesome space for you to grow.

3. Capital One

The awesome thing about Capital One careers is that the company recognizes that people come in all varieties. You don’t have to be some sort of cookie-cutter cog to succeed at Capital One. It is a diversified bank with a ton of different financial products. With a start-up mentality, Capital One also prides itself in innovation.

This is a pattern among the best companies in the industry. Leaders who treat their employees the best are always thinking forward – always innovating.

“Is a really good place to work with clear goals, striving for success,” says one loan processor.

4. Allstate

Allstate is all about contributing to something bigger than yourself. “Don’t just work. Work for good” is one of its slogans.

Allstate reviews indicate that its employees feel a strong sense of gratification from Allstate’s values and overall culture.

“My boss and my co-workers are great. Also, I enjoy helping people and making sure they understand what they are buying,” says one licensed insurance agent.

5. JPMorgan Chase

JPMorgan Chase careers offer a strong, multinational opportunity. The bank is ranked as the second largest bank in the world by assets. This huge banking giant offers three different segments: Chase, JP Morgan and JP Morgan Chase & Co.

Working here means touching the lives of millions of customers, small businesses, and some of the world’s most notable organizations.

One Sybase data administrator said, “I worked with a set of skilled and culturally diverse professionals from all over the planet, in a dynamic, fast paced, challenging and state-of-the-art (technological) environment.”

Note: In order to be considered for our happiest finance companies list, companies needed to have had at least 20 reviews submitted by their employees in 2012. Check out the full top 10 list on CareerBliss here, including more info about the ranking methodology.
