Fortune is out today with its annual list of the “100 Best Companies to Work For” and in 2016 Google takes the top spot for the fifth year running and the 7th time total in the 10 years it’s been included.
The list actually considers the entire company, now called Alphabet since it reorganized under the new parent name last year. Fortune’s entry for Google cites the company’s unique and recently enhanced perks for employees, as well as its ability to spark “the imagination of its talented and highly compensated workers.”
Last year it enhanced health care coverage by offering virtual doctor visits, second-opinion services, and breast-cancer screenings at headquarters. One Googler explained, “The company culture truly makes workers feel they’re valued and respected as a human being, not as a cog in a machine. The perks are phenomenal. From three prepared organic meals a day to unlimited snacks, artisan coffee and tea to free personal-fitness classes, health clinics, on-site oil changes, haircuts, spa truck, bike-repair truck, nap pods, free on-site laundry rooms, and subsidized wash and fold. The list is endless.”
As for who Google beat out, the company is followed by #2 Acuity Insurance, #3 The Boston Consulting Group, #4 Wegmans Food Markets, followed by Quicken Loans rounding out the top 5.
Other tech companies that made the list include SAS Institute (#8), Ultimate Software (#15), Salesforce (#23), Intuit (#34), Riot Games (#39), VMware (#40), Autodesk (#54), Activision Blizzard (#77), Cisco Systems (#82), and Adobe Systems (#87).
