Haha North Allegheny is #5...

Is the business climate that bad that a school district is in the Top 5 businesses in the area?

I believe they send out a bunch of surveys to workers in these employers.

Yeah if you're surprised by that, then you have never been anywhere near NA School District. If I could get a teaching job there, I'd move back to Pittsburgh and work a position that I want nothing to do with, because it would be amazing to work for NA.

We made the small companies list. The award is basically if you submit information and pay to go to the event, you're a winner.

Somewhat surprised our company didn't make the list. We have about 650 people and the majority of people seem to like it here.

Yeah it explicitly states a lot of the larger corporations didn't participate. I don't know why they wouldn't? Are they that worried their workers will give them bad press?

Is it really that expensive. I would think it's a good recruiting tool.

We pay gazillons to gallup every year to do an extensive surveying...i could understand why the bank wouldn't care to be noted in this PG survey.

companies dont become successful by frivolously spending on PPG popularity contests. if they are the best places to work (large corporations) then the word is already out. i think this would be much better for the smaller companies.
