The best companies for Gen Y are all technology companies, according to PayScale’s “Gen Y on the Job” report. The top five – ranked on Gen Y pay, percentage of Gen Y employees, Gen Y job satisfaction, Gen Y job stress, meaningfulness of work for Gen Y workers, Gen Y work schedule flexibility and green score – are (1) Qualcomm, (2) Google, (3) Medtronic, (4) Intel, and (5) Microsoft. All of them, except for Medtronic, were on this year’s Fortune Magazine “Best Companies to Work For” list. Last year, Medtronic was listed at number 23 for the “100 Best Places to Work in IT” by Computerworld. Clearly, all five of these companies have already received recognition for their efforts.
