The ten best German firms to work for

Published: 07 Apr 2014 09:02 CET

Universum Global take on the task of digging up the world's most attractive employers each year. They have rounded up the top 100 business in Germany which include big corporate names, from pharma giant Bayer to frozen food kings Dr Oetker.

Knowing that those of you reading Job Talk are a discerning group, we've listed Universum's top 10 – although it's actually 11, as two came in tied.

The employer branding company asked nearly 5,000 professionals how they perceived organisations as employers.

Car companies like BMW, Mercedes and Porsche placed well in the rankings, and between them pay the wages of hundreds of thousands of employees worldwide. One auto maker topped the list, but it was none of the aforementioned.
