Fortune Magazine recently published their list of 100 Best Companies to Work For in 2014 and Detroit's Quicken Loans came in at an honorable number 5.
(That's 8 points higher than last year, apparently, when we were ranked number 13.)
Fortune lauds Quicken Loans' number of new jobs and well-rounded compensation packages, among other things.
Here's their write-up—
What makes it so great? The mortgage lender is intent on reversing brain drain from Michigan. A recent job fair in downtown Detroit attracted 2,500 applicants for 500 jobs. It also partnered with area businesses to offer incentives to employees willing to move to the city, including $20,000 in forgivable home loans.
Well done, Quicken Loans.
