Fortune Top 100 employers for 2013: Google #1, Microsoft #75, Apple not good enough

Every year Fortune comes out with a list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For, drawing on the benefits employers give to their employees as a basis for their list. In this year's refresh, a significant portion of the top 100 are tech companies, and while the number one spot will not really surprise many, there are some companies you would expect to place that haven't made the cut.

Google is the best company to work for, according to Fortune

Google takes the crown once again as the best company to work for, with Fortune highlighting a range of services the company provides to employees such as "a roller hockey rink; courts for basketball, bocce, and shuffle ball; and horseshoe pits." Microsoft, another tech behemoth, managed to take out the #75 spot, while others such as Intel (#68), Qualcomm (#11) and Cisco (#42) all managed to find a spot inside the top 100.

Surprisingly, one of the largest tech companies out there - Apple - has failed to place at all, with Fortune also neglecting to include Facebook, IBM, and several other massive tech companies on the list. Apparently the workplaces of these companies don't cut it up against some other giants, with places such as FedEx and Starbucks making the list in lower positions.

Why isn't the US government jobs on here. 2 hour lunches, come in late, leave early, go home early or "work from home" when in-climate weather. walk around talking to your cube buddies or cube cuties while getting coffee.

What are its actual metrics for building this list? As an analytics junkie, I crave this info.

Also, in before someone notices Valve missing.

If I'm not mistaken, they only list publicly traded companies, therefore Valve not being there isn't a surprise.

WTF are you smoking. Have you ever read Magazine or visited website Fortune web site the sell Ads... Duh. The all make up list to try to drive traffic to their site.

Are they even able to rank Apple employment? I was under the impression their employees were under strict orders not even to acknowledge the existence of life outside the Infinite Loop.

I don't think Fortune magazine is a good judge for indicating top companies to work for.

Glassdoor.com has reviews by company employees and here is the list of the best places to work for in 2013: So I would think this list is more accurate.

Mcdonalds isn't on the list so either the mcdonalds in america is a pile of **** compared to the rest world or your list is crap.

Ah ok, thanks then.
I'm greatly relieved my world view doesn't have to be altered then.

People would rather work for starbucks instead of Apple lol.

I heard the reason was the staff used Apple maps to get to work and never made it so they couldn't do the poll
