Fortune has published its annual “The 100 Best Companies To Work For” (Milton Moskowitz and Robert Levering, March 15, 2015, pp. 97–154). In the nearly two decades that Fortune has been researching and publishing this list, I have always found it to be interesting, insightful, and inspiring. Perhaps the list could be a starting point for your next career move. Therefore, I am summarizing the top ten companies on the list, along with another 20 from the list that particularly captured my attention. The accompanying spreadsheet will show you the rank on the list, the number of employees, and the number of open positions as of when the data was originally collected.
You can never know for sure exactly where or how your next career move might develop. So why not scan this subset from the list and see where it takes you? Should you decide to pursue a new position with one of these 100 best, don’t expect the application and screening process to be a walk in the park. These companies did not achieve this distinctive honor by taking whoever walked in the front door. Nevertheless, if one or more of these lights your fire, then go for it. It might just be your next big move!
