Opportunity and inclusion
It's a great list I would be curious to see if these companies suffer from the same issues around diversity and inclusion that we've seen in so many tech companies . Hopefully their culture makes them open to all types of employees . It's a great place to work for only a certain type of employee then the opportunities are limited for all .

Re: Opportunity and inclusion
@ impact now. I agree. Also, there are different factors and trade off to take into consideration when joining a new company.  For example, Amazon is a world renowned IT company, but an article on the New York times indicated that they do not treat their employees very well.  Sure, the pay and experience is great, but forget about family life balance.  I will add another factor such as mentorship opportunities. Even if you are from a diverse background, if you aren't guided properly to prosper and grow within a company, it will difficult for such individuals to move them into management

Re: Opportunity and inclusion
Pedro very true there are many things that make a great company but many of them are also subjective . While some things are fundamental other things maybe important to certain employees . The key is understanding how to motivate each employee and meet their needs .

Trickle down
I hope we start to see measures that make these companies great placed to work trickle down to more industries and lower paying jobs too. That said, they need to be pragmatic changes. 

As much as the infinite holidays and long maternity leaves are great in some respects, with some firms it's led to a climate of people not wanting to use much of them since it's more their choice than company mandated time.

Very interesting.

Re: Opportunity and inclusion
I agree with you. Culture has become an important aspect in any organization. I think most of the IT companies promote a flexible culture to its employees.

Don't you think it's all about creating a learning culture. It will help employees to enhance their skills and knowledge.

Re: Trickle down
Right, Whoopty, what's unlimited vacation time do you if you are peer pressured into not wanting to ever use any --- or to working and sleeping in the office 20 hours a day? I suppose people who want a life should avoid companies whose culture attracts people for whom work is life.

Re: Trickle down
Yep - and the "work as life" has always been the rule more than the exception at most of the companies I've ever worked for. I'd love to see a job in NYC where this isn't the case.

Re: Opportunity and inclusion
IT companies and companies in general anymore. I interviewed a company where a friend works ten years ago and they were hesitant to give me an offer because I would have needed to work remote. Now I know that 50% of that company's staff are remote employees (thankfully I turned their offer down, I didn't want to be on the beginning of that learning curve for them).
