Best and Worst Places To Work In 2009

by Jason Wilk on December 30, 2008


  • Glassdoor, a site that surveys employees about workplace conditions has issued lists of the 50 best and worst companies of 2009 as rated by the 11,000 employees in its database. While that number is relatively small, the results seem about as accurate as Fortune’s annual 100 Best Companies To Work For issue. General Mills took the top spot overall, and tech companies were not surprisingly mixed in both the good and the bad lists. Google got into the top 10 but eBay and IAC rounded out the bottom 50. I wonder if seriously struggling stock price has anything to do with those working conditions? Thanks to TechCrunch for bolding the tech companies down the list.
