When you work seven days a week, fourteen hours a day, you get lucky.” – Armand Hammer

I’ve posted lots of links to the companies on Fortune‘s Best Companies to Work for list, typically running from top to bottom. But then I got to thinking, what about those companies on the list that are hiring the most people? Seems like a good idea (to me at least), so today’s post will focus on those companies. For those interested in how Fortune derives the list, take a look at “Criteria for the Best Companies to Work For“. And for those wondering if it really matters at all, take a look at “Does the Fortune 100 best companies to work for really matter anymore ?“. Drop me a line and let me know what you think (E-mail Me!).
