The Top 100 Companies to Work For

Fortune magazine loves to put out lists, and one of the most anticipated lists is especially for those looking to improve their curent employment situation – either in looking for a new challenge, better benefits … or just a job in general.

Recently on CNBC, Fortune magazine managing editor Andy Serwer talked about  Fortune’s annual list of the 100 best companies to work for, and discussed some of the top companies on this year’s list and some of the criteria that determines the rankings.

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)

Hint: It is not always about wages. But you probably already could figure that out.

Serwer spent some time talking about Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG), which topped the magazine’s list this year. When asked about why Google Inc was on top, Serwer said, “Everyone talks about the perks and the food and all that, but I think what it really is, is that it attracts the best and the brightest people. And that’s because of all the things that [it's] doing. (Google Inc) just bought Nest. There (are) driverless cars, there’s Google Glass, search, they dominate. [Google Inc continues] to attract the best and brightest people. If you want to work in that kind of environment, that’s the place you want to go.”

Serwer said the list was compiled from two sources, working through the Great Place to Work Institute, based in San Frnacisco. One part of the rankings came from a review of the businesses rom their own employees, and the seonc part was a peer review of the companies from similar or rival companies.

The top five companies that were mentioned in the video clip (shown below) are Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG), SAS, Boston Consulting Group, Edward Jones and Quicken Loans. A couple of newcomers to the  Top-100 list were The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated (NASDAQ:CAKE) at No. 92 on the list and Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE:H) (No. 95), among others.

Among other notable companies on the top-100 list were:

salesforce.com, inc. (NYSE:CRM), No. 7;

Intuit, Inc. (NASDAQ:INTU) at No. 8;

NuStar Energy L.P. (NYSE:NS) at No. 26;
