To pick the 100 Best Companies,
FORTUNE partners with the Great Place to Work Institute to
conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America.
Two-thirds of a company's score is based on the results of the
Institute's Trust Index survey, which is sent to a random sample of
employees from each company. The survey asks questions related to
the employees' attitudes about management credibility, job
satisfaction, and camaraderie. The other third of the score is
based on the company's responses to the Institute's Culture Audit,
which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs
and a series of open-ended questions about hiring, communication,
