What tech company holds the key to your dream IT job? Here, eWEEK ranks the 20 best technology companies to work for, according to Glassdoor.com's "50 Best Places to Work" study. The Glassdoor list is based on data collected from real employees. In addition, while companies such as Google, Apple, Saleforce.com and Intel made the cut, many of the other firms are ones that fly under the radar. While the majority of companies on the list are tech, several others include design, traditional engineering, bio-technology, health care and consulting companies with major research and development, IT strategy and technical practices. For purposes of this presentation, the number associated with each company is where companies rank on the Glassdoor list and includes an overall company rating from 0 to 5, with 5 being the highest. Also included are CEOs and their overall approval rating as a percentage from employee reviews. "Glassdoor's Employees' Choice Awards recognize stand-out companies that have retained the support and commitment of their employees despite the tough economic climate," Glassdoor CEO Robert Hohman wrote in a statement. "For companies on the list, we typically get positive feedback on the company culture, benefits and open communication practices while we also tend to see high opinions of the chief executive."
