What To Look When You’re Looking For A Good Company To Work?

If you are seeking for a job, what are the characteristics of a company that you want to work with and spend many years of your life, possibly up to retirement?

If you are presently employed, how would you know if the company you are working for is a good one?
In “A Great Place To Work: What Makes Some Employers Do Good (And Most So Bad)” Robert Levering gives five hints or indicators about a good company to work with, or the five things make for a good company. These are as follows:
1. A friendly place. Few of the companies had separate executive dining rooms, executive parking spaces and other perks that set ranks apart in a social hierarchy. People enjoyed each other company.
2. A minimum of politics. Management did not encourage politics by such acts as demoting or dismissing for what employees may perceive as personality conflicts rather than performance deficiencies.
3. You get a fair shake. Employees are treated fairly and not taken advantage of. Complaints are heard impartially and fully.
4. More than a job. Employees believe their work has meaning, and that they have responsibility and control over it. They feel free to criticize the actions of others without fear of retribution.
5. Like family. A caring, nurturing environment in which one’s personal concerns are important to others in the organization, engenders a lifelong career commitment by employees. Exuding a “We’re all in it together” spirit, god workplaces are often more productive and profitable than their competitors.
Does your company have the foregoing characteristics? Why or why not?
