The Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal is out with its list of the best places to work.
According to a news release, here’s the criteria:
To be eligible for consideration as a Business Journal Best Place to Work, companies had to have an office in the Twin Cities 11-county metro area with 10 or more employees, or be Minnesota-based companies with at least 1,000 employees in the state. They also had to have a certain number of employees, depending on company size, complete the online survey.
The online survey part of it is a little questionable. One can imagine the benevolent boss begging the employees to click the survey.
Here’s the list:
C.H. Robinson Worldwide Inc.
Capella Education Co.
Certes Financial Professionals Corp.
Clockwork Active Media Systems
Colliers Turley Martin Tucker
First Financial USA Ltd.
Fredrikson & Byron

If you work at one of those places, what’s so great about it. If you work at another place not listed, why do you think it shold — or shouldn’t — be on the list.
