I thought this was interesting: Starbucks is now ranked 73rd on the Fortune Magazine list of the best 100 companies to work for.  Here’s the article: Top 100 Companies to Work For 2012.  It seems as though Starbucks has bounced around quite a bit on the list, and was ranked in the 90s in very recent years past, such as 2011 and 2010.  I found the Top 100 Companies to Work For list from 2000, and Starbucks was #88 back then.

Just thought I would pass along this little piece of news for those who are interested!  I’m glad to see the number improving for Starbucks.  The success of Starbucks depends on the partner experience just as much as anything else. I wonder what’s causing the improving trend?  (Or is that a significant jump from about 93 to 73?)
