Re: Who Would/Wouldn't Work For?

Seems like we're just picking companies out of a hat. Does anybody want to provide reasons?

I work in healthcare, so I guess I'd say I wouldn't want to work for Tenet (They're a financial mess right now, not to mention controversial). Otherwise, just about any healthcare system would be good.

Re: Who Would/Wouldn't Work For?

Reason is simple, what companies have you formed a negative or positive about? I suppose people can elaborate if they wish.

MS, EA, and Amazon work you to death. Your soul will die within these companies' hallways.

Disney IT pays awfully well and I have never see any other company with the kind of benefits they offer. Google allows you work on your stuff one day a week. Red Hat, because I like the idea of hacking the Linux Kernel.

I love the Red Green show. I didn't think anybody else watched that but me.

I had big problems with Progressive so I did a job search on them. EVERYONE hates to work for them. Go to jobvent.com, that is a great site!
