I know the place for which I work isn't there. We're a healthcare information services startup. In the space of just over a single year, we've had:
- A massive layoff in which about 15% of the full-time employees were fired, all in one location, and almost all of the vendor contracts were terminated;
- Four reorganizations, and;
- Three major changes in business direction.

Seriously, the job I currently perform isn't the one for which I was hired just over a year ago. The amusing part is that management is still baffled at our Glassdoor rating & reviews, even as we auger ourselves, screaming, into the tarmac. Most of our revenue is driven by existing products, provided by our parent companies (we were originally formed from a partnership of two much larger corporations), because we apparently can't code our way out of a paper bag with a map and a flashlight. Our software is about as useful as Helen Keller's Speak N' Spell.

Surprised to see Cypress Semiconductors on the list. Did TJ increase the rice ration to 2 sacks a week?

The company my company has me at now does business with at least 4 on the list. But I didnt expect to see where I work on there. I'm not very engaged at work.

My workplace is very involved, until immigration comes around and they have to shut the place down.
 
2014-01-14 01:55:10 PM
Why number them if they're in alphabetical order?
 
2014-01-14 02:14:28 PM
Wonder if this was one of those things where you pay to get on the list, or if it was one of those things where you strongarm your employees to fill out a survey a certain way.

The latter, I suspect.

Have you considered the possibility that you're a front for money laundering?

Interesting they went with Alphabetical order, rather than a ranking from 1 to 50 of how they thought the companies did.

But why start making sense now?

I knew my old employer wasn't on there, though they did bribe some organization last year to be a 'best place to work'.
 
2014-01-14 06:43:28 PM
yeah, involved with the mexican cartels!

God damn does that article ever look like it was written by a good translator raped by an insane regex function grepping web crawler logs.

Don't worry, it's completely anonymous. Oh, BTW, we noticed that you haven't filled out your survey yet. Don't forget. We'll be watching.

My former employer's main competitor appears on Fortune's Best Places to Work list year after year. What was the company's reaction? Maybe read the profile to understand why their competitor makes the list each year while they don't? Nope. Instead for several years they mailed out instruction for employees to take the survey with positive answers or there would be layoffs. Not surprisingly the company never made the list but the competitor still did (and still does).

Yea, when you get a personalized survey link with a random string of 10 characters at the end that you can't change without borking the link it's pretty obvious they know exactly what everyone said.
