Two longtime winners of Fortune magazine’s 100 Best Companies list have once again landed among the top 15.
Both are based in the Triangle and were the only North Carolina companies to make the list.
Raleigh-based Kimley-Horn ranked No. 11. The infrastructure consulting and design firm have been on the list for 10 years; last year, it ranked seventh. The company employs 2,840 companywide; 216 in the Triangle. According to Fortune, the firm reported $628.8 million in 2016 revenue. “Young employees at this design consultancy say the opportunities for growth and support for newbies are ‘awesome’ and senior staff doesn't feel like ‘bosses’ but ‘peers and friends,’” says Fortune.
Coming in at No. 15 is Cary-based analytics giant SAS – last year, it ranked eighth. This is the 20th year SAS has appeared on the list. The company is among the largest employers in the Triangle with 6,845; 14,6063 companywide. SAS reported $3.2 billion in revenue for 2016. According to Fortune, SAS employees enjoy on-site amenities, such as child care and dry cleaning, as well as flexible work schedules.
Both companies are hiring. Fortune reports SAS had 121 openings as of February; Kimley-Horn 279.
How I Get Your Home SOLD!Once You place your home on the market,
"Two years ago I had Natasha's help to find a local rental in Lehigh as I uprooted my life and moved from the Cape to Lehigh. Two years fast forward, she assisted my growing family in buying our first home! We just closed last week after a stressful 3 months with my daughter being born and rooming at my in-laws during this process. Natasha was there every step of the way, on top of the ball game and helped us work on our credit and pointed us in the right directions for lending, home owners insurance, home inspection people and even set us up on a view-able timeline system to keep us in the loop on everything we did and had to do. Without her help, I don't know if I could've done this. Buying a house is a stressful situation on its own, without the added worries of where your family will sleep.. Natasha helped me understand every step we had to do and because of her hard work, we closed on our first home 5 days ago. Best feeling ever! She works around the clock to help her clients, even at 10:30pm just to get papers signed,or answer my silly questions. She's the best! I'll never use another realtor again."
