Google, Amazon, Apple Dominate Most Desirable Companies List

It's no surprise that Apple, Amazon, and Google dominate a list of companies people would go to work for if they could. However, does this mean workers really want to leave?

Re: Most Desirable
@Tom- Yes, as they say about politics, all management is local. If your boss stinks, it doesn't matter how great the company is.

That said, it is my experience some companies attract more annoying bosses than others. And that they go looking for and reward that trait. So while culture is never spread evenly, it can help.

Re: Most Desirable
Keep in mind it's hard to generalize about how a given person will feel at any company. Some people end up with bad bosses or coworkers. I know unhappy people at Amazon, despite its reputation. And people leave these companies all the time for greener pastures.

@dave Interesting list - thanks

I wonder what the list would have looked like 20 years ago? 40 years ago? (doubt there was a list like this then)

Probably just the Fortune 500? Including IBM and GE -- still on the list now. Maybe also  AT&T and..Kodak?
