Interest in other major US cities - and why did they not make the grade?
I notice (in the GlassDoor report of the top 25 cities) that all 3 major OH cities scored top 25, but that Denver did not. I'm wondering if Denver was evaluated and what were the major drawbacks? Also, if Denver was not evaluated, why not? We have lots of tech here - as long as the surveyor includes the Denver front range area and not just "Denver" zip codes. It's a great place to live, so it's surprising to see it not included in a list like this one.II

Do You Know The Way To San Jose ?
Thanks Kelly for this list. It is always helpful to know that the best are still the best and yet someone new might sneak in.

I have been to San Jose for instance, it is didn't seem all that much to me. Maybe I was in the wrong part of town ? I was there for business so I doubt it.

And then of course there is Seattle. I really am curious about Seattle. I like rain and progressive cities but I don't want to be smack in Microsoft Country.

 

Still waiting on another inroad there though.
