Fortune names 100 Best Companies to Work For (1/28)
Some highlights from this year’s list: NetApp tops the list, followed by No. 2 Edward Jones and No. 3 Boston Consulting Group.
Google, which was #1 on the list for the past two years, moves to #4 for the 2009 list.
California has the highest number of companies on the list (15), followed by Texas (14) and New York (9). 15 companies made the list for the first time in 2009, including Zappos.com (No. 23), DreamWorks Animation SKG (No. 47), salesforce.com (No. 55), T-Mobile (#96), Accenture (No. 97) and Vanderbilt University (No. 98).
NetApp, which topped the list this year, is based in Sunnyvale, Calif., employs 5,000 people in the U.S. and catapulted to No. 1 after six years on the list because, write list authors Robert Levering and Milton Moskowitz, of “its employee enthusiasm for the legendary egalitarian culture.”
Rounding out the top 10 are No. 2 Edward Jones, No. 3 Boston Consulting Group, No. 4 Google, No. 5 Wegmans Food Markets; No. 6 Cisco System, No. 7 Genentech, No. 8 Methodist Hospital System, No. 9 Goldman Sachs and No. 10 Nugget Market.
