For the fifteenth consecutive year, the corporate research team at Selling Power magazine has ranked the 50 best companies to sell for in the United States. The list includes companies of all sizes – with sales forces ranging from fewer than 100 salespeople to companies with sales-force numbers in the thousands. An extensive, expanded questionnaire was used to uncover key data that would be important to prospective sales representatives as they look for a new sales role. This year, we focused on three broad areas while examining the data: customer growth and retention; hiring, compensation, sales training, and enablement; and company recognition and reputation. (See the ratings chart below.)
Our detailed rating system placed the top companies extremely close, with only 10 points separating the top 10 companies. In cases of a tie in the overall point rankings, the companies were placed in alphabetical order. Anyone entering the sales field or making a career move to a new company should begin his or her search by reviewing Selling Power's 2015 list of the 50 Best Companies to Sell For.
