    Amazon is on top here, but Amazon is not in top 💯 companies to work for (no surprise there) but surprisingly, Jeff is not in top 💯 CEOs in the US..

    The secret of these lists is that the company pitches they should be on the list. That's why you should never pay attention to them.

    No idea how 3M got on the list. Try to find any specific product on the 3M.com website and it is an accurate reflection of how well organized the company is.

    Pre Mercury, I would agree with 6th but post Mercury, the field is like concert doors opening for Taylor Swift and security and ushers forgot to show up. It's a freaking mess.
