Plante Moran Makes Fortune's Top 10 Best Company List

Plante & Moran, one of several second-tier accounting firms, not only made Fortune magazine's Top 100 Best Companies to Work For, but came in Number 10 on the list.

Other accounting firms to make this year's list include Deloitte & Touche (#32), Arthur Andersen (#67) and Ernst & Young (#98). Coming in at number one was The Container Store.
