A recent survey of where MBAs wish they worked show only three financial firms made the top 10, and none are in the top three. Bain Capital placed fourth, ahead of number seven, Goldman Sachs and 10th placed J.P. Morgan. CNN Money highlights the top 15 places new MBAs say they want to work. It’s a nifty story giving the percent of MBAs employed at each outfit, hiring outlooks and what it takes to get an offer. A few quirky tidbits:
- Google is conducting some interviews via Google Hangouts.
- McKinsey is noted as a great place for working moms.
- There is a new push to hire MBAs at the post-Jobs Apple.
- Millennials reportedly tend to stay longer than planned at Boston Consulting because the work is so stimulating.
- MBA interns at Amazon get face-time with top execs through brown bags.
- Facebook’s COO Sheryl Sandberg mentors women in tech.
