Apple not among 'happiest companies for young professionals'
A new study by CareerBliss (http://www.careeerbliss.com) -- an online career community that provides company reviews by real employees, detailed salary information and local job opportunities -- says that Apple didn't make the list of its "happiest companies for young professionals." The top 10 companies on the list are GE Energy, Nordstrom, Fluor, United Space Alliance, AstraZeneca, Centex, GlaxSmithKline, Wipro, FedEx Express and Kaiser Permanente..
CareerBliss analyzed more than 223,500 employee-generated reviews between March 2011 and March 2012. The company asked young professionals, defined as employees with less than 10 years of experience in a full-time position, to rate the company they work for on a scale from 1 to 5.
“What we see for young professionals is a desire to find a company culture that fits with their personal work-style,” says CareerBliss co-founder and CTO Matt Miller. “They want a company that values their ideas and provides the growth opportunities and leadership to help shape their career.”
