NEW YORK, U.S. - For the sixth year in a row and eight time in 11 years, Google topped the list featuring the 100 best companies to work for.> BNN

Fortune, that has been compiling the annual ranking for 20 years now surveyed more than 230,000 corporate employees on various criteria to put together the list this year. 

Further, seven New York City companies found a spot on the list this year. 

While Rochester-based Wegmans Food was ranked second on the list, Tarrytown-based Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc. too found a spot at the 85th position.

Meanwhile, NYC-based professional and financial services firms found prominent spots on the list.

KPMG was ranked 12th, PwC on the 23rd position, EY at 29th, Goldman Sachs Group ranked 62, Deloitte at 64, American Express Co. at 69 and Accenture at 88.

Further, amongst the other companies that found a spot on the coveted list were Boston Consulting Group at the third position, Hyatt Hotels Corp. at 32, Marriott International Inc. at the 33rd position, Whole Foods Market Inc. at 58, Ikea Holding U.S. at 72, Protiviti at 80, Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe at 96, and Bright Horizons Family Solutions Inc. at 90.

The publication compiled the rankings in collaboration with Great Place to Work and said that corporate employees were questioned about the quality of their leaders, support for their personal and professional lives, and relationships with colleagues. 

Further, Great Place reportedly scored a Culture Audit questionnaire that rates each company based on various factors including compensation and benefits, hiring practices, recognition, training and diversity programs.

In a statement, Great Place to Work CEO Michael C. Bush said, “These leading companies are at the vanguard of a new business frontier, where organizations know they have to develop the full human potential of all their employees. They are working to build Great Places to Work for all, which are better for business, better for people and better for the world.”

Fortune meanwhile said that in the 20 years that it has been compiling the list, 12 companies have made the cut every year. 

The companies include Goldman Sachs that was appreciated by workers for the investment banking firm’s value on “intelligent, motivated” colleagues, as well the growth opportunities within the bank’s “meritocratic” culture.

Even KPMG has made the cut each year, with employees touting the “constantly challenging environment” in which staff is “empowered to continue learning.” 

PwC has been on Fortune’s list 13 times and was described as a company that launches careers. 

PwC hired over 5,500 new grads in the past year and pioneered a student loan pay-down benefit, in which employees can get $1,200 a year toward their loans. 

Employees lauded the company for “countless opportunities for growth, travel, and leadership” experiences.

EY employees, on the other hand, appreciated the company for its “phenomenal” flexibility that allows staffers to “work when and where they want” so that they have the freedom to enjoy life’s little things and the big ones. 

The company has featured on Fortune’s list 19 times so far.
