Best Companies to Work For in Austria: Top 25 Companies in 2023 

Eli McGarvie

Austria isn’t the first country to come to mind when you think of working in Europe. Before you remember that the Alps exist, you probably first imagine the canals in Amsterdam or the Eiffel tower in Paris, or Big Ben in that wonderful isle we call England. 

While Austria doesn’t have a claim to one of Europe’s bustling startup hubs like Germany or The UK, it is an emerging market with some unique players. You might not know this but Red Bull, Swarovski, and Spar are all Austrian companies. There have also been a few new unicorns on the scene, with BitPanda, and GoStudent reaching billion-dollar status in 2021. If you’re interested in working in Austria, keep reading to find out what companies should be on your radar. 


We’ve taken the top 25 companies based on employee ratings on Kununu. Kununu is an employer rating platform (similar to Glassdoor) based in Austria. We excluded companies with less than 200 reviews. Reviews are based on the following criteria; career & salary, corporate culture, working environment, and diversity. Each category is given a star rating out of five which is then averaged into a total score. It’s important to note that this data is general in nature and without access to the raw data it’s impossible to determine how companies have progressed over time. Therefore the following list is based on “all-time data” and not just ratings from 2023. 

Best companies to work for in Austria

According to Kununu, the best companies to work for in Austria are DM, EGGER, Boehringer, Raiffeisen, and Accenture (top 5). It’s important to note that this is a local job rating board and therefore might exclude a few international companies.

Most popular companies to work for in Austria

To get a full perspective on the “best” companies in Austria, I think it’s also important to include a list of the companies that people want to work for. For example, Google might get a low rating on Glassdoor but it’s still a company everyone in tech wants to work with or for. 

This list is from The Most Attractive Employers in Austria report by Universum. They surveyed over 9,000 students in Austria asking them what companies they wanted to work for. We’ve used the results from the engineering and IT students. Ratings are from Glassdoor.
