The company employs the largest workforce on our list, with 55,455 in the U.S. plus 38,835 more around the world.
Last but not least on our compilation of best tech companies to work for, based on the Fortune rankings, is TEKsystems, with 3,165 employees in the U.S. plus 306 outside the U.S.
Based in Hanover, Maryland, TEKsystems ranks 79th on Fortune's list, with an interesting corporate culture. The magazine says, "Culture at the IT staffer revolves around 'open-book relationships'; workers are expected to share 'almost everything' about their personal and professional lives."
To compile the full list of "100 Best Companies To Work For," Fortune partnered with the Great Place to Work Institute, conducting what they describe as "the most extensive employee survey in corporate America." For this year's list, 259 firms participated in the survey, with more than 277,000 employees at those companies responding.
Two-thirds of a company's score is based on the results of the Institute's Trust Index survey, which was sent to a random sample of employees from each company. The survey asks questions related to employee attitudes about management's credibility, job satisfaction, and camaraderie.
The other third is based on responses to the Institute's Culture Audit, which includes questions about pay and benefit programs, plus a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, internal communication, training, recognition programs, and diversity efforts.
Any company that is at least five years old and has more than 1,000 U.S. employees is eligible to participate. The deadline for applying for next year's list is July 1, 2013, with online nomination forms available on the Great Place to Work Institute website.
