"If at first you don't succeed, you're running about average." - M.H. Alderson
I think that being #1 is somewhat overrated. After all, if you are in the top "anything" that is pretty good.
When prepping for today's post, I was trying to think of something where I came in first during my life and the only thing I could come up with was first in line in grade school (and that was only because we stood in "size order" and I was the shortest (somewhat sad).
But seriously, the companies listed in the Best Companies to work for are all amazing places to work (no matter ranked first or number 100.
