FORTUNE Announces That Juniper Networks Is Included On The 2009 '100 Best Companies To Work For' List
SUNNYVALE, Calif., January 23, 2009 - FORTUNE announced Thursday that Juniper Networks, the leader in high-performance networking, has been ranked 84 on the 12th annual "100 Best Companies to Work For" list. The full list and related stories appear in the February 2 issue of FORTUNE, available on newsstands on Monday, January 26, and now at FORTUNE.com/bestcompanies.
In his FORTUNE.com blog, Managing Editor Andy Serwer writes, "No matter what happens with the economy, the demand for talent will remain. Great companies know that super-motivated, happy, world-class employees are an incredible competitive advantage."
To pick the "100 Best Companies to Work For," FORTUNE works with Robert Levering and Milton Moskowitz of the Great Place to Work® Institute - a global research and consulting firm with offices in 30 countries - to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America.
"People are the driving force at Juniper," said Kevin Johnson, Juniper Networks Chief Executive Officer. "Our employees are relentless in their commitment to solving customer problems and advancing the industry. They have created an environment where innovation thrives and a sense of community prevails. That's what makes Juniper such a great place to work."
More than 81,000 employees from 353 companies responded to the 57-question survey created by the Institute. Two-thirds of a company's score is based on the survey, which is sent to a minimum of 400 randomly selected employees. The remaining third is based on a company's responses to the Culture Audit questionnaire, which asks detailed questions about demographics, pay and benefits, and open-ended questions on philosophy, communication and more.
Any company that is at least seven years old with more the 1,000 U.S. employees is eligible to be included on the list. The deadline for applying for next year's list is March 31, 2009. For an online nomination form, go to greatplacetowork-100best.com.
