I was kinda expecting Apple to be one of the top considering the stupidly large cash reserve it sat on (and never gave away even a single cent until after Steve Jobs passed away).

It's 5x less than an average dividend, but it's available now when before they gave zero.

You left out the #2 firm on the list, also a tech firm, SAS.

[citation][nom]makafri[/nom]I think valve should be a great place to work....[/citation]


It's been recognized as the best gaming company to work for. Maybe it's just too small of a company to make the list.

I'm surprised Valve wasn't in the list. Usually Valve is the best place to work.

Well, Steve Jobs did fire entire project teams because he didn't like what they created, and routinely dropped the F-bomb when someone proposed an idea he didn't like...

im thinking more the reports of having your cellphone taken and searched.
they give you the iphone so its technically the companies, and they are allowed to.
or also the reports of lockdowns till the searches are over.

I wonder if the report only looks at a single location, after all Apple (and to an extent Google) have hardware built in China under atrocious conditions.
