For Google at least, it seems not much has changed since 2010, when it topped the list of more desirable employers, followed by the Big Four accounting firms KPMG, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst & Young, and Deloitte. The rest of the Top 10 experienced a shakeup, however, Bloomberg Businessweek notes.
"Apple leaped from No. 18 in 2010 to No. 9 in 2011, while Coca-Cola dropped from 8 to 12." Also of note, Google rival Microsoft raked No. 6. "In 2011, business students gave an edge not only to Google but also to other technology companies, while banks and traditional business employers continued to descend in popularity," Bloomberg Businessweek adds.
