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.

Companies generally make the list when they demonstrate continued commitment to employee-oriented issues. Employees, in fact, complete questionnaires and the feedback is used to rank companies on the list.

The summary written up for Plante & Moran said, "This Michigan accounting firm has about half the turnover rate of the Big Five national firms. There are no partner rows at P&M offices; each staff member is assigned an office (with a door) and his or her own desk and computer."
