Google again tops Fortune's list of best places to work

Four companies representing different parts of the construction industry were named to Fortune's list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For. Rounding out the top three local employers is Veterans United Home Loans, based in Columbia, Maryland, at No. 27 on this year's list. David Weekley Homes also slid in the ranking this year from its No. 17 spot last year, and has been ranked for 11 years.

NuStar was one of only two energy companies to be named to this year's list. Recently, the company revised its parental policies after it found working mothers were leaving Google at a higher rate than other employees.

"The best know they can't rest on their workplace laurels".

Camden has made the Fortune list 10 times and previous year ranked No. 9. The family-owned chain with 90 stores throughout the Northeast offers a tuition reimbursement plan for college-aged employees, a free cake on workers' birthdays and other perks, including hot chocolate breaks for staff required to work outdoors during the winter.

The top ranked Texas company is Houston-based Camden Property Trust at No. 22.

Five companies managed to muscle their way onto the list for the first time this year: Pinnacle Financial Partners, SAP America, Delta Air Lines, Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare, and AT&T.

And at spot No. The Boston Consulting Group, where employees say the opportunities for growth are "unmatched", benefits like $5 co-pays are "off the hook" and hard work is balanced by an emphasis on self-care (think sabbaticals, fitness centers and telecommuting), Fortune says. People anonymously assess their workplace, including the quality of their leaders, support for their personal and professional lives and their relationships with colleagues.
