Each year, Fortune Magazine compiles a list of the 100 best companies to work for and to watch. Which of those companies are in the finance, investment, accounting or insurance sector? For those with a career in the financial industry, and for recent graduates or candidates looking to start fresh in these industries, there are numerous opportunities to work at high ranking companies with branches across the United States.
Rankings of the top US companies to work for are determined primarily through an employee evaluation survey, and include a wide number of factors and variables.
Within the top fifty, nine companies categorized under “Financial Services & Insurance” made the list – including 3 in the top 10 of all companies in America. These include the following:
#3 Acuity, Wisconsin
#5 Robert W Baird, Wisconsin
#6 Edward Jones, Missouri
#12 Quicken Loans, Michigan
#33 USAA, Texas
#37 Credit Acceptance, Michigan
#48 FactSet Research Systems, Connecticut
#49 Aflac Incorporated, Georgia
#50 Goldman Sachs Group, New York
In addition to the top nine, an additional five financial service, investment and insurance companies were listed between numbers 50 and 100: American Express, Allianz Life Insurance, Navy Federal Credit Union, Capital One Financial, and Nationwide Mutual Insurance.
Graduates looking to start their financial or insurance investment careers this year can look to Goldman Sachs Group, Capital One Financial, and Edward Jones as contenders as they are in the top ten ranking in terms of seeking out and hiring recent graduates out of college.
If you are a job seeker new to or already established within the financial and insurance sectors, both Capital One Financial and Edward Jones have continual job opportunities as they expand their field representative force, as evidenced by a consistently large amount of job openings.
