Astranis ranked highest on average across the full range of review categories offered by Glassdoor. The company came in first for overall rating, compensation and benefits, senior management, culture and values, career opportunities, business outlook, and "worth recommending to friends."

Going beyond employee reviews, data can also shed light on which employers are rewarding their workers with strong compensation. Glassdoor provides salary estimates for jobs listed on its site, based on compensation in job descriptions and reported by employers and employees.

The company with the highest estimated salaries across all of its jobs posted last month in San Francisco was Sharp Electronics Corporation, a company "known worldwide for its unique one-of-a-kind electronic products and solutions," according to the company's profile.

Among Sharp Electronics Corporation's recently listed jobs, positions for field service representatives have the highest expected compensation, and are above the median among local employers seeking the same skills.
