The publication recently released its list of “America’s Best Large Employers for 2024″ following a survey of employees at companies with more than 5,000 workers.

Nova Nordisk in New Jersey was named the top large employer to work for in the country. The company employs 55,000 people. Fidelity Investments, 14th on the list, was the top ranked large employer in Massachusetts.
