Corporate culture figured prominently in Fortune’s recently released list of the “100 Best Companies to Work For, 2007.” The list includes 11 companies headquartered in New York, plus 15 others operating in the state.
Google, with 562 employees at its 9th Avenue Sales and Engineering Office, ranked No. 1 in the nation for its unique perks, such as free gourmet cafeteria food, on-site spa, on-site doctors and paid time for independent research.
Running at No. 3 nationally is Rochester’s Wegmans Food Markets, which receives thousands of letters every year from customers requesting it open a Wegmans nearby.
Other New York winners include Ernst & Young, Goldman Sachs, Nixon Peabody, PricewaterhouseCoopers, American Express, Deloitte & Touche, KPMG and Rochester-based Paychex.
Quality health care and benefits were key attractions, but so was a caring culture. Employees commended Nixon Peabody’s positive atmosphere (“People really care about each other”); PricewaterhouseCoopers’ aid to employees hit by Hurricane Katrina; Ernst & Young’s Partners and Principles Matter initiative, which cares for sometimes-neglected senior staff; and Paychex’s flexible schedules.
