1. Southwest Airlines
Rating: 4.4; CEO approval: Gary Keller, 95%
SWA offers some of the best perks and pay rates in the industry, although some employees take advantage of the laidback and relaxed atmosphere.
2. General Mills
Rating: 4.2; CEO approval: Ken Powell, 99%
Long work weeks of 50+ hours are offset by autonomy and flexibility within departments.
3. Biogen Idec
Rating: 4.0; CEO approval: George Scangos, 40%
This company really seems to care about making life easy on its employees by offering summer hours, collaboration and free perks, but is offset by bureaucracy and lack of cross-knowledge.
Rating: 3.9; CEO approval: Eric Schmidt, 96%
High pressure environment and mediocre base pay is balanced by fun environment, amazing perks and benefits, and a company-wide drive to succeed.
5. Procter & Gamble
Rating: 3.9; CEO approval: Bob McDonald, 93%
Passion, commitment and dedication are expected on both ends, which can sometimes result in amazing benefits, and sometimes in having to make sacrifices.
6. Southern Company
Rating: 3.8; CEO approval: Thomas Fanning, 100%
While management is great and the work is flexible, the highly-regulated nature of Southern Company has decided teamwork is the way to go and free spirits may feel left behind.
Rating: 3.8; CEO approval: Ian Cook, 98%
Work-life balance is cited as one of C-P’s top benefits, but employees have also said that promotions feel too political with due recognition for work not always occurring.
Rating: 3.8; CEO approval: Tim Cook, 97%
Apple tends to look better from the outside than on the inside, with employees having to work long hours. However, the company does come with a lot of prestige.
9. Goldman Sachs
Rating: 3.8; CEO approval: Lloyd Blankfein, 97%
Hard work is rewarded here more than at other companies, but GS’s definition of hard work is also a lot more intense and competitive than most.
Rating: 3.8; CEO approval: Hugh Grant, 84%
Growth is almost limitless in current roles, with jobs available around the world, but advancement doesn’t come as readily.
11. Continental Airlines
Rating: 3.8; CEO approval: Jeffrey Smisek, 75%
Travel perks are highly competitive and the laidback corporate atmosphere is welcomed, but low turnover rate makes advancement and promotion difficult.
Rating: 3.7; CEO approval: Alan Boeckmann, 92%
Recruitment tends to happen within the company, with hard work duly rewarded, but that effort comes at a cost: the large size of Fluor means many long hours to earn that recognition.
13. Northwest Mutual
Rating: 3.7; CEO approval: John Schlifske, 92%
Compensation is entirely on commission, which rewards the ones who are driven and ambitious, and weeds out the ones who prefer a more structured, teamwork environment.
Rating: 3.7; CEO approval: Paul Jacobs, 89%
Still a giant after all its years in the wireless field, Qualcomm offers its employees a front-of-the-line opportunity to work on the leading edge of technology, but its size may make some employees feel lost.
Rating: 3.7; CEO approval: Ed Crenshaw, 82%
Base pay is more than compensated with full-time and performance bonuses, although they come at a cost of having to work 50+ hours a week to earn them.
Rating: 3.7; CEO approval: John Watson, 80%
Safety, flexibility and teamwork are highly valued qualities, while quiet natures, low-visibility jobs, and a disdain for the “old boys network” aren’t as readily acknowledged.
Rating: 3.6; CEO approval: Tom Watjen, 89%
Unum is one company that’s steadily made progress through the recession, rewarding its employees with promotions and flexibility. But favoritism strongly exists.
Rating: 3.5; CEO approval: Jim Sinegal, 91%
The work environment at Costco can be quite political at times, with hard work not always getting recognized, but benefits and bonuses are quite competitive.
19. General Electric
Rating: 3.5; CEO approval: Jeffrey Immelt, 88%
Growth in any career direction is always an opportunity, but the size of the company means employees need to have a clear idea of their own ambitions and desires to stay ahead of the pack.
Rating: 3.5; CEO approval: Fred Smith, 87%
Diversity and job opportunities seem to be in abundance, but payouts and bonuses don’t extend to couriers, the employees who make up the bulk of the company.
21. American Express
Rating: 3.5; CEO approval: Ken Chenault, 84%
High executives, including the CEO, have made an effort to shrink the size of the company by getting to know all employees, but the workplace atmosphere is very corporate and conservative.
Rating: 3.5; CEO approval: Jay Fishman, 84%
If employees can adapt to the highly competitive, driven atmosphere that can change with the market’s whims, they have a chance to do well.
Rating: 3.5; CEO approval: Paul Otellini, 84%
The perks seem to be endless and much better than at most organizations, but they’re to be earned, not handed over. Its big size results in political pockets.
24. State Farm
Rating: 3.5; CEO approval: Ed Rust, Jr., 84%
The hours are flexible and the chance for high sales, based on the company’s known name, are almost limitless, but the job you signed up for may not be the job you end up working.
Rating: 3.5; CEO approval: Steve Ballmer, 48%
While the work may be challenging and varied, some employees feel that the jobs they perform mimic other companies instead of leading the charge.
