Don’t settle for a mediocre workplace. On InHerSight you can find great companies for women all across the U.S. Here are just a few that are getting high marks.

What if finding the perfect company was like finding the perfect Gelato flavor? You could walk in, get a bunch of tiny spoons to sample them for comparison, choose the best one, and leave knowing you got exactly what you wanted.

Unfortunately, it's not possible to sample a bunch of employers until you find the right one, but there is a way to put potential employers to the test! At InHerSight, our anonymous company-ratings data uses the experiences of working women to help you find that perfect fit.

Here are five companies you may not have heard of that have great scores on InHerSight:
