Degree in Electrical Engineering and Ph.D. in the same courses at the University of California, Berkeley in 1989.

He later led the retail broker-dealer team, became the CEO of Northwestern Mutual’s subsidiary company, and later achieved the career climax by being CEO and Chairman of the business in 2010. The company is basically structured in its professional undertakings, which pretty much explains how Northwestern Mutual treats its workers.

Jim Turley, just like anyone else in this list, has worked with the company for as long as anyone could remember. He started small back in 1977 and has never left Ernst & Young ever since, making him the current Chairman and CEO. He would be retiring in June 2013, reaching his 36 years in the business. So what made Jim stay so long? First of all, it is a place where learning is at its best, all thanks to a conducive environment that’s teeming with good-natured people. The salary also pays well, and the benefits would perfectly compensate for the tasks being done on longer working hours. The workforce is generally motivated, making you also just as motivated and energized.

Before Dominic Barton worked at McKinsey, he started his career as a currency analyst in the British multinational investment banking company, N M Rothschild & Sons Limited. But in as early as 1986, he entered McKinsey & Company, and did not have an easy time becoming a partner for the company. Due to being rejected over three times, it has been his pledge to raise the bar for his own, even beyond what McKinsey would demand of its employees. Due to his efforts of making it to the top, even being called as Worldwide Managing Director, he made sure that every employee working here would feel their worth with life-work balance that’s kept at a standard level, and that they are respected for their work and their opinion.

SAP is known to be one of the greatest competitors against Oracle for being a developer of software solutions for businesses, enterprises, and companies. Due to its drive of being the best, SAP also sees to it that their employees feel working in the best company there is in the industry. What’s a free lunch, motivating trainers, and compensation packages that would drive you to bring out your best? They are just inclusions of the thing that matters most, which is constant learning and career development. The environment is actually family-friendly, and people from different departments are bred with great in-business culture that cannot be found anywhere else. Technology is also at its peak, especially since there are technologies are only used within. Just as Bill McDermott & Jim Hagemann Snabe are, SAP is a place where people are valuable and are placed in the highest priority.

Mark Zuckerberg’s mentality about working in Facebook is strongly associated with its objective, which is to make the world more open and connected. This aspiration can not only be seen as it is in front of the computer screens, but it is also apparent with the working relationship of all employees, regardless of position and function. Mark Zuckerberg is a kind of boss that thinks almost the same as his workers. What he looks for in people is their ability to find huge problems and fixing them just as fast. Personal preference does not matter much, but what matters is their capability to do things. He looks at mistakes as an opportunity for growth, and he encourages people, whether big or small, to speak up their minds, be bold, and learn how to take risks. But more importantly, he teaches his people to be open through interaction and understanding. Who would not like to work in a company that has such amazing ethics and outlook?
