A mighty fine place to work

Santa Clara University has once again garnered a top spot in the “Best Places to Work in the Bay Area 2008” survey, conducted by the San Francisco Business Times, the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal, and the East Bay Business Times.

The University ranked No. 10 in the “big companies” category, for businesses with 501 to 1,500 employees. Other top Bay Area employers in this category are Webcor Builders, HOPE Services, and Brocade Communications. Santa Clara is the only higher education institution in the top 10.

As part of the confidential survey, nearly 200,000 Bay Area employees evaluated their satisfaction with their workplace, assessing management practices and policies, satisfaction with benefit offerings, work climate and culture.
