Depends What You Mean by “Best”

Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For” list just came out and there aren’t too many surprises except for in their little descriptions of what is so awesome about working at each place. Sure, Starbucks gives part-time employees health insurance, but did you know about the amazing rewards at CarMax? If your lot does particularly well the CEO comes and makes you a steak dinner. At Southern Ohio Medical Center, housekeepers are allowed to ask patients how they are doing! And, at PricewaterhouseCoopers, they have a “reverse mentoring program” where youngs — on top of doing their actual jobs — get to (have to?) tell olds how great being young is, or something. Did you give notice yet?

We apologize, but due to the holiday, Mean-Spirited Wednesday was pushed to Thursday this week.
