Fortune Magazine Ranks The "Q" as Top 20 Company to Work For

Cleveland, OH - Quicken Loans, the nation's largest online retail lender, has been ranked in the "Top 20" on FORTUNE Magazine's list of the "100 Best Companies to Work For" list for the fourth consecutive year.   Quicken Loans, which employs 175 people at its Cleveland Internet Home Lending Center, is ranked #9 on the list of medium-sized companies, #17 overall, and also was cited on a list of companies with the "most unusual perks."

Of the 1,500 companies that requested to be considered, 446 companies were invited to participate in the process this year.  "The 100 Best Companies to Work For" list is compiled for FORTUNE by Robert Levering and Milton Moskowitz of the Great Place to Work Institute in San Francisco, based on two criteria: an evaluation of the policies and culture of each company, and the opinions of the company's employees.

Two-thirds of the total score comes from employee responses to a 57-question survey which goes to a minimum of 400 randomly selected employees.  The survey asks about attitudes towards management, job satisfaction, and camaraderie within the organization. The remainder of the score is based on an evaluation of each company's demographic makeup, pay and benefits programs, and culture.
