AEC firms make Fortune list of 100 Best Companies to Work For

FORTUNE 100: Wegmans takes #2 on 'Best Companies' list

A single Colorado-based company was named to Fortune's latest annual " 100 Best Companies to Work For" list, released by the New York-based magazine. David Weekley Homes also slid in the ranking this year from its No. 17 spot last year, and has been ranked for 11 years. This is the 12th straight year the company made the list.

Chicago-based Hyatt is No. 32 on this year's list. Recently, the company revised its parental policies after it found working mothers were leaving Google at a higher rate than other employees.

No. 2 on the list is another perennial top-five, Rochester, N.Y. -based grocery store chain Wegmans. The list is based on employee ratings of workplace culture, and includes the level of trust they feel toward their leader, the pride they take in their jobs and camaraderie with co-workers.

"The best know they can't rest on their workplace laurels". But it's the "small things that make a difference", like free cakes on birthdays and hot chocolate in the winter for anyone who works outside, says the company.

The rest of the top 10 were rounded out by Wegmans Food Markets, Inc., The Boston Consulting Group, Inc., Baird, Edward Jones, Genentech, ULTIMATE SOFTWARE, Salesforce, Acuity Insurance and Quicken Loans.

Great Place to Work compiled the list of top companies based on growth, profitability and stock performance among other metrics. In its 20th year, the ranking uses employee surveys and other data to rank the largest US firms on metrics such as leadership quality, personal and professional support, and coworker relationships.

The three companies have been recognized on the list in previous years, with USAA appearing for the 12th time since Fortune first published the list in 1998.
