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.

Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
