"What's better than working for a tech company? Working for a happy tech company!" So says CareerBliss.com, which has come out with this top 10 list of technology businesses in America with the most contented employees. Across the board, organizations that made the cut are praised for their compensation, benefits and overall culture. Employee satisfaction ratings were also driven by factors such as career advancement and the quality of innovation-focused opportunities, as well as how the company fares in terms of competitive advantage. To find out why having a happy workforce matters, check out recent research from Gallup: Departments that fall within the top half of their organization in terms of employee engagement nearly double their odds of success. Those in the top quarter of engagement experience 37 percent less absenteeism, 25 percent less turnover and 21 percent higher productivity than their counterparts in the lowest quarter. CareerBliss also includes average-salary information, along with each organization's overall "BlissScore" (on a scale of 1 to 5), both compiled from user reviews. CareerBliss is an online job posting/company review/professional advice site.
