Google has topped Fortune's annual list of '100 Best Companies to Work For' and that's not surprising - with a job growth of 33%. the 13-year old search giant has moved up from fourth place in 2011 to top the list this year.
Everything was up at Google last year -- revenue, profits, share price, paid search clicks, hiring -- and so, too, was employee love; the search giant climbed three slots in our ranking to reclaim the top spot, Fortune reported.
Why is Google the company to work for? The reason? Employees rave about their mission, the culture, and the famous perks of the Plex: bocce 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, the report stated.
My job as a leader is to make sure everybody in the company has great opportunities, and that they feel they're having a meaningful impact and are contributing to the good of society. As a world, we're doing a better job of that. My goal is for Google to lead, not follow that, Google co-founder Page said in an interview with Fortune.
Two other tech companies were also ranked in the top 10 - No.3 (SAS Institute) and No. 6 (NetApps) respectively. SAS Institute, leader in business analytics software and services, features special care for child with subsidized Montessori education besides a free health care center.
California-based date storage company NetApps attracts employees with pay-for-performance program which pays up to 31% of employees' salaries. Other well-known tech companies, which are in the top 100 list, are Qualcomm (No. 23), Salesforce.com (No. 27), Adobe (No. 41), Intel (No. 46), Autodesk (No. 52), Microsoft (No.76) and Cisco (No.90).
