(1) Love the comment abouve about public schools!

(2) Wegmans is WONDERFUL! I have emailed them several times begging them to come to the Jersey City / Hoboken / Edgewater area, but I guess the area is too dense with competition from regular supermarkets plus Trader Joes and Whole Foods.

What I love about Wegmans is that they offer fantastic produce and meat and fish and their own lines of products, all at great prices, but they don't have that oh-so-precious-i-must-eat- organic-all-the-time vibe that you get at Whole Foods. If I know I'll be over in the Edison area, I always make it a point to do my week's grocery shopping at the Wegmans there. Staff are always pleasant and helpful, so it doesn't surprise me that they are, yet again, on the fave places to work list.

Keep up the great work, Wegmans, and please, reconsider and open in Jersey City. If you open near a PATH station, like Target did, I'm sure you'll get folks from NYC coming over to shop too.

Why isn't public school teacher on the list? According to some people they are highly paid with great benefits, short hours and summers off.

worked at several (finance/consulting). 80% "feeding the beast" -- simply sustaining the structure of the corporate body rather than performing its function.

the soul of the companies dwell in the corporate culture themselves rather than the services they perform...

appreciated the benefits, the charity initiatives, and the genuine push to dilute the pot of white men with as much diversity as possible.

That said, I know wegman's is on the list and it is genuinely one of the most soulful companies I've come across. imagine your local market's produce manager driving out to local farms to help them improve their crop quality, so that he can buy them.
