Galileo Learning has been recognized as a winner of the 2018 Bay Area Best Places To Work, an awards program presented by the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal. Our Gaileo Bay Area summer camps located in San Jose, SF, Oakland, Alameda, Berkeley, Sunnyvale, San Jose, Menlo Park, Marin, and Walnut Creek (and more) have all helped contribute to this amazing award.

This marks the ninth consecutive year Galileo has earned the Best Places to Work honor, and the team couldn’t be more proud. As COO Chris Goetz often says, “the way we work together is as important as the work we do.”

Select employers from the Bay Area were named winners of the awards program, held on April 18, 2018. These winning organizations were honored for having created exceptional workplaces that their employees value highly.

Award applicants were evaluated and ranked across 5 categories according to the number of Bay Area employees.  The ranking found companies in the region whose employees rate them as the highest on such values as fun, collaborative culture, solid compensation and benefits offerings and other amenities as well as management practices.  The rankings were unveiled on April 18, 2018 at the awards program.
