Munich Is the Best Place to Work

The website cvapp.de compared 100 German cities to ascertain the best place to work. The top spots were taken by Munich and Düsseldorf.

To draw up the ranking for the best place to work, data was compared such as company reviews from popular review portals, potential employment opportunities, and financial KPIs, including the cost of living and average salaries.

Munich and Düsseldorf achieved the same results in the comparison and share the top spot. When it comes to corporate culture, Munich has the best rating by far. In exchange, the authors found the highest cost of living in the capital city of Bavaria.

Working in Munich: “Higher cost of living in a city with outstanding recreational options”

Munich and Düsseldorf are followed in the ranking by Hamburg, Frankfurt am Main, Stuttgart, Erlangen, Darmstadt and Cologne. Berlin came in ninth place ahead of Bremen. Within the scope of the study, employer representatives were surveyed. Sandra Weiß, Department Head of Personal Management at Swiss Life in Munich is quoted as saying:

“A multitude of open positions makes Munich an attractive job market. Employees can choose their desired job from a wide selection. This is why it’s of crucial importance for companies in Munich to put special emphasis on their corporate culture in order to differentiate themselves from other companies. At Swiss Life, our corporate culture plays a major role and is something that is felt and experienced in all areas. A good work atmosphere, cooperation among colleagues and a multi-faceted offer for a personal work-life balance definitely provide appealing compensation for the higher cost of living in a city and region with outstanding recreational options.
