If you were looking for a new job - what is the top company you'd want to work for?

What's your current "Dream" company? Obviously there are a ton of things to take into consideration (role, compensation, account base, etc.), but assuming those things are equal what would your top pick be? Would you want to work for a behemoth like AWS or GCP? Would you want to find the next Snowflake or just work there now post-IPO? Would prefer something steadier with potentially lower growth expectations? My background is in tech, but this doesn't have to be exclusive to that area.


It might also be interesting if anyone with experience at these companies could provide insight on the answers that people give. The grass obviously isn't always greener.

I almost interviewed there once but it was outside sales which I don't know how I feel about that. I enjoy my cushiony inside sales gig. Also - does his 70k for everyone mean sales folks get screwed out of commission? I hope not!

No, my comment was in full sarcasm. The dude's a piece of shit who had a lawsuit brought against him BY HIS BROTHER because he didn't pay his employees enough and then acts like he's the shit because he paid them more. Not to mention the allegations against him from his ex are horrifying, to say the least. Waterboarding????? What the fuck man - guy's a scab.

I want to work as a buyer for a coffee roaster. Traveling all over the world discovering new beans and farms. If you say Salesforce then you're a real sucker for linear growth via minute title-only promotions.

I'd love to work for Microsoft, Google or Nike. Not sure any are my dream company but they're places I'm familiar with enough to know they would pay me well and give a fair amount of perks/flexibility.

I also want something with travel though.
