No. 1 Large Company: U.S. Cellular
Concern for both clients and employees has helped make this wireless network company a 9 time 100 Best winner. “Being part of an organization that values the opinion of their customers and associates makes me feel very proud and very lucky,” says one employee. “We are allowed, as associates of the company, to ask questions, push back on ideas/initiatives and given the freedom to act in the best interest of our company at all times.” People who work here also praise the pay and benefits structure for both part and full time workers, the collegial atmosphere and opportunities for advancement. Says one employee: “Laughter and easy going efficiency are the rule of the day around here, and I’m a perfect example of promoting from within.” Says another: “I look forward to waking up and coming into work everyday.” An employer can’t ask for much more than that.
This company has been the number one best large company four times.
