By December 14, 2015April 19th, 2021Orange County, Work Life Balance

People may not think of Orange County when it comes to cool new start-ups or Wall Street finance gurus, but regardless, top companies choose to set up camp in our sunny region. If you peruse a list of “Best Companies to Work for in Orange County,” you may be surprised at the well-known companies — small and large — you’ll find. And, honestly, who wouldn’t want to work near the beach or in a city where the sun shines almost all year long? It seems everyone is flocking here, and the reasons are as clear as our cloudless skies.

We sifted through two such lists — the Orange County Register’s people-voted “top companies” list and the OC Business Journal’s list of best companies — and found companies listed on both. Although there are many more recognizable companies in the area (e.g. Microsoft, Disney, Boeing), these ones have been selected as the top places to work for as of 2014. So turn in your applications, and if you’re planning on moving, pack your bags. The OC is calling.
