Surprise Surprise. The Results are In. Ebay and United Really Do Suck!

Two of my least favorite companies are in the news again. I'm happy to report that Glassdoor.com has just released their best and worst places to work. The usual suspects adorn the best places list (full list here). These lists are telling of the types of talent a company can recruit. While many great employees seek out "best places" to work, worst places not only push away prospective employees but also alienate their own. Treating your employees well is part of your total success equation (along with treating your customers well).

1) General Mills
2) Bain
3) Netflix
4) Adobe
5) Northwestern Mutual
6) Whole Foods
7) Google
8) SAP
9) Continental
10) NetApp

And... now for the worst places (full list here).

1) DHL Express (USA)
2) United Airlines
3) Reynolds and Reynolds
4) Farmers Group
5) Gibson Guitar
6) RadioShack
7) Rain Bird
8) CSAA Inter-Insurance Bureau
9) Office Depot
10) Compuware
47) Ebay
