Very rich benes, shoes-optional dress code, and the opportunity to potentially get rich on an IPO scam. What’s not to love?

These top companies are relatively new, tech-focused, employ lots of very bright people, and pay very well. You won’t see many union employees despite the voting patterns of the employees. These companies are burdened with relatively few regulations compared with, for example, oil, chemical, or manufacturing companies. I would guess the employees are relatively young and not too concerned about high taxes, yet. The companies are often around Boston or Silicon Valley. If you are a MIT or Stanford grad, these companies probably seem a lot like your college.
