  1. The table seems to be incorrect. Ranking in the first table is directly correlated to the company-rating but in the worst companies table, it is inversely correlated.

    How can Dell with a company rating of 2.8 be worse than Xilinx with a company rating of 2.3?

    1. lowest seems to be Xilinx only. “Lowest-Rated Tech Companies” table is from lowest to highest.
      whereas “Highest-Rated Tech Companies for 2009” table is sorted from highest to lowest

  2. Umm, re-read it again Sriranjan.

    Dell is better then Xilinx. Xilinx is the worst, it’s the “number 1 for lowest-rated tech companies” – That means it’s the lowest-rated tech company…

  3. I’d question something in the results.
    according to Glassdoor, F5 Networks has a 4.2 rating, and john McAdam has a 90% approval rating. That far exceeds any on those listed here.

    Here’s the F5 page on glassdoor


      1. Where are the approval ratings listed? I only see the 1-5 scale and the CEO approval ratings?

        Or is that a typo? Did you mean 50 approval ratings? F5 only has 20 ratings so far.

  4. HP’s position on the lowest ranked company list is worthy of some quiet reflection. At one time it was a legend in the industry, a place every engineer aspired to join.

    The natural entropic state of a corporate culture is bureaucratic miasma. It requires constant infusions of energy to stave it off a while longer.

  5. Most of these can’t be real technology companies. TC never writes about them, Scoble doesn’t know what they do, and their CEO’s don’t Twitter.

  6. It’s funny how sometimes the companies choose a motto that is the exact contrary of what they actually are.

    Take HP’s “Invent” for instance.
    What did HP invent in the last 20 years? The TouchSmart PC, which is just a combination of existing components and a “nice” interface.

    I can tell you, HP is all but agile.
    When you want to DO something at HP, to invent, to produce, to be innovative and see your innovation actually being developed, sold and used, well, you have to have so many approvals that the day it is finally released (if ever), the market accuracy of your invention is usually far behind.

    HP is definitely not one of the best companies to work for.
