World Best Companies 2009 - Your feedback

World's 10 best companies to work for. This list was published in Fortune magazine in Feb 2009 as Top Employers. I have picked up the first 5 to know why they are at the top.

Company: NetApp : Rank: 1

Why: The essence of what fuels the quality of the workplace at NetApp is the high trust culture. Leaders reach out to employees, sharing information, support and time in a variety of ways. This generosity of spirit is reciprocated many times over, creating within NetApp its own version of a fail-safe networked organisation.

Company: Edward Jones Rank: 2

Why: 'Employees receive a whopping 149 hours of training on average a year, more than three times the 100 best average of 45. But Edward Jones doesn't just train people for the job they're doing. The management's philosophy is that employees who are passionate about their jobs will make the company a better place, so managers encourage people to develop skills even when they know the new skills will lead to a different job.'

Company: Boston Consulting Group Rank: 3

Why: BCG prides itself on its employee focused culture. 'Training opportunities abound, even for senior partners. All employees are encouraged to continuously learn, accept responsibility and take on challenges. BCG is viewed as an apprenticeship and most training actually takes place within the project team. Associates who commit to returning to the company after receiving an MBA are fully reimbursed for tuition, given a promotion and a raise. Administrative staff may be reimbursed upto two job-related courses per semester.'

Company: Google Rank: 4

Why: The company slogan is 'Don't be evil.' Google is famed for going all out to keep their employees happy. Professional development opportunities include classes on individual and team presentation skills, content development, business writing, executive speaking, delivering feedback and management/leadership.

Company: Wegmans Food Market Rank: 5

Why: Wegmans believe that good people, working toward a common goal, can accomplish anything they set out to do. They also believe that they can achieve our goal only if they fulfill the needs of our own people.
