Fortune magazine has released a list of 100 Best companies to work for and surprise, surprise!! It is NOT Google!! It is NetApp which tops the list. Coming in second on Fortune’s 12th annual list was Edward Jones, followed by Boston Consulting Group.
NetApp provides storage and data management services to business and it employs around 5,000 people and topped the list due to its “employee enthusiasm for the legendary egalitarian culture,” Fortune said.
Google, which topped the list for the past two years, dropped to No. 4
Google marked tenth birthday in 2008. While the company still attracts 777,000 applicants a year, hiring has slowed, and it recently cut frills like afternoon tea and an annual ski trip. Hence we can see the direct hit in the rankings!
Other companies in Top 10 were Wegmans Food Markets, Cisco Systems, Genentech, Methodist Hospital System, Goldman Sachs and Nugget Market. If you are specifically interested to know about the best tech companies to work for, they are NetApp, Google, Cisco, Adobe, REI, Qualcomm and others.
