Fifteen companies headquartered in California have made the 2009 Fortune magazine “100 Best Companies to Work For” list.
The 15 are Adobe Systems (San Diego), Cisco Systems (San Jose), DreamWorks (Glendale), eBay (San Jose), Genentech (South San Francisco), Google (Mountain View), Intuit (Mountain View), Juniper Networks (Sunnyvale), Kimpton Hotels (San Francisco), Mattel (El Segundo), NetApp (Sunnyvale), Nugget Market (Woodland), Qualcomm (San Diego), Salesforce.com (San Francisco) and Scripps Health (San Diego).
Why did so many California companies make the list? Great benefits seem to be the reason. For example, Kimpton employees love paid sabbaticals and job sharing, Nugget Market has never had a single layoff in 81 years, and Google employees enjoy such perks as on-site daycare.
Why it matters: Employers recruiting out-of-state talent sometimes have to fight the impression that California is a state in big trouble with budget problems and plunging real estate values. Emphasize that California still has plenty going for it by mentioning that so many California employers made the Fortune list.
