Best Places To Work - Where is your dream job?

Best Places To Work

Fortune has released its list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For in the U.S., and Google nabbed the top spot. The Internet giant jumped three spots from its No. 4 ranking last year to land at the top of the list. “Everything was up at Google last year – revenue, profits, share price, paid search clicks, hiring – and so, too, was employee love,” Fortune said of Google. “The search giant climbed three slots in our ranking to reclaim the top spot. The reason? Employees rave about their mission, the culture, and the famous perks of the Plex: boccee courts, a bowling alley, eyebrow shaping (for a fee) in the New York office. Then there’s the food: some 25 cafes companywide, all gratis.” Fortune noted that Google has 18,500 U.S. employees, posted a job growth rate of 33% last year, and logged $29.3 billion in revenue in 2010. The Top 10 on the list:

1. Google 6. NetApp
2. Boston Consulting Group 7. Camden Property Trust
3. SAS Institute 8. Recreational Equipment (REI)
4. Wegmans Food Markets 9. CHG Healthcare Services
5. Edward Jones 10. Quicken Loans
