Top Companies To Work For
Getting your dream job just became easier with these top companies to work for. If your desire is to conquer the world through cyberspace and get a free haircut along the way, there is a company out there just for you. If you have grown weary of losing money on scratch-and-win lottery tickets, there is a company that offers a much better jackpot. So dust off that resume and rush to claim a spot in one of these companies:
- SAS. There are few companies who can match the perks SAS offers to its employees. The company offers perks such as on-site healthcare, inexpensive child-care, car washes and a gym brimming with awesome features. It is a rare job where you can work, entertain the kids and cross train for a marathon all at once.
- Boston Consulting Group. No layoffs and record number of new employees hired in 2010 are just two great reasons why this company is so popular. Managers and staff working en masse to help with volunteer efforts after the Haiti Earthquake is just icing on the cake.
- Wegmans Food Markets. If you want good health, this is the place to be. Fitness and diet challenges are the norm. Employees get free flu shots around flu season. Physicals cost extra.
- Google. You don't have to search long for nice perks with this tech giant. Employees all received 10 percent raises during 2010. If that is not enough, Google offers free food, free haircuts and on-site game rooms.
- NetApp. This is the place interns dream about when the boss screams at them for getting the coffee order wrong for the eleventh time this week. Executive assistants make more than $75,000 per year, and receive up to $21,000 bonuses, at this computer storage and data management firm.
- Zappos.com. At this Amazon owned company, the best things in life really are free. Free lunches, free vending machines and free sessions with a life coach are some of the perks this online shoe retailer offers to employees.
- Camden Property Trust. If you go on vacation while working for this company, forget about spending a week in an overpriced hotel and getting gouged on room service. Vacation rentals for employees in company owned apartments cost just $20 per night.
- Nugget Market. Working for this supermarket chain is better than buying a lottery ticket. Employees are treated to random on-the-spot bonuses ranging from $20 to $1,500. Talk about hitting the jackpot!
- REI. This outdoor retailer pulls no punches to get its employees to enjoy the outdoors once the workday ends. Employee discounts on REI clothing and gear are as high as 75 percent. Loyalty is also rewarded with a four week paid sabbatical given to employees who have been with the company for fifteen years.
- Dreamworks. Tired of plunking down $20 for first run movie tickets? That will never be a concern if you work for this Hollywood studio. Employees enjoy free movies. This is on top of free breakfast and lunch and free on-site classes such as yoga and art. Call it their version of happily ever after (minus green ogres, of course.)
