Foreign-invested firms dominate rankings of best workplaces, but Vietnamese peers are more conspicuous in the top 20.

Vietnamese dairy giant Vinamilk remained the best company to work in the country for the second year in a row as per the 2018 "Best Places to Work" survey, which listed the 100 best workplaces in Vietnam. 

Vinamilk was followed by Vietcombank, Nestle, Samsung Vina Electronics and Vietnamese telco giant Viettel. This continued Vietnamese firms’ dominance of the top five, while the number of domestic firms in the top 20 went up from six the previous year to eight last year.  

The survey results were released Wednesday by local career network service Anphabe and U.S.-based market research firm Nielsen.

In its sixth year, the survey was the largest ever conducted, collecting feedback from a pool of 75,481 respondents working in 24 different sectors. Rankings were based on salary levels, bonuses, welfare and work-life balance for employees.

Once again, multinational giant Unilever failed to show up in the top 100 listing. (See the complete top 100 in 2018 here)

Many Vietnamese firms on the list also improved their rankings last year, including Techcombank (16th to 9th), Vietnam's largest private conglomerate Vingroup (31st to 23rd), PNJ (51st to 27th), and budget carrier Vietjet Air (70th to 62nd).

Overall, there were 27 local firms in the top 100 list.
