The Boston Globe Names Carbon Black a Top Place to Work for 2017 for Fourth Consecutive Year

Magazine honors the best employers in Massachusetts

WALTHAM, Mass., November 17, 2017 – Carbon Black, a leader in next-generation endpoint security, today announced it has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts in the 10th annual employee-based survey project from The Boston Globe. Carbon Black has received this distinction each year since 2014.

“Carbon Black’s culture, people, and leadership have been instrumental in solidifying our standing as a top employer year after year,” said Amy Robinson, chief people officer at Carbon Black. “We truly value our people and strive to build the most inspiring, transparent, and positive work environment possible. I am so pleased to receive this distinction on behalf of the amazing Carbon Black team, all of whom have tirelessly contributed and shaped the future direction of our company and the culture we know and love.”

Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on by the people who know them the best—their employees. The survey measures employee opinions about their company’s direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits, and engagement. The employers are placed into one of four groups: small, with 50 to 99 employees; medium, with 100 to 249 workers; large, with 250 to 999; and largest, with 1,000 or more.

“Our winning companies are all in on a secret,” said Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor. “Treating employees well isn’t that difficult, and the payoff — increased morale, retention, and productivity — is huge.”

The rankings in the Top Places to Work are based on confidential survey information collected by Energage (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from nearly 75,060 individuals at 334 Massachusetts organizations. The winners share a few key traits, including offering progressive benefits, giving their employees a voice, and encouraging them to have some fun while they’re at it.

The Top Places to Work 2017 issue is available online at and is also published in the November 19 issue of The Boston Globe Magazine.
