Who are the 100 Best Companies?

The list recognizes many employers with best-practices staying power as well as innovative upstarts. This year, we celebrate 20 companies never listed before, and 45 that have appeared 5 years or more.

As usual, the broad sector with the biggest showing was professional services, encompassing a third of the list with 7 law firms, 6 management consultancies and 5 firms each in accounting, advertising/marketing/PR, architecture/engineering/design and staffing. Construction increased its contingent from 10 last year to 12 companies, while finance scaled back from 14 to just 10 banks, investment firms and mortgage lenders, and health care declined from 8 to 5 companies. Software and IT expanded to 10, telecom/Internet providers grew to 6 and manufacturing ramped up to 7 companies.
