Bank of America is the #1 most desirable place to work in Charlotte, followed by the Carolina Panthers and Red Ventures.

In a recent Agenda survey to our 36,000+ daily newsletter subscribers, we asked the question: “Which Charlotte-area employer would you most like to work for?”

Bank of America was the clear #1 spot and almost doubled the votes of the second place Carolina Panthers. I also didn’t realize the strength of the employer brand at Barings and the City of Charlotte.

Unsurprisingly, most of our area’s largest employers dominate the responses. That said, it’s cool to see smaller, high-growth companies like AvidXchange, LendingTree, Movement Mortgage and Passport crack the top 20.

Other small employers that didn’t make the top 20, but had significant mentions: Foundation For The Carolinas, BooneOakley, Wray Ward, Levvel, Blumenthal, Skookum, Simonini Homes and U.S. National Whitewater Center.

Here’s the ranking of most desirable places with local employee count and local job openings.
