What caught my eyes was the U.S. engineering students picking Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as its number 13 preference. That's pretty cool. But over all, energy companies seem to be doing well. Of course, another interesting thing, for me, was that each country's index reflected which companies are most attractive to local engineering students, revealing the popularity of local companies on the local level.

Multinational companies are typically well established and tightly organized. In addition, it is well funded. It is not a surprise to me that Google are among the top in most countries since innovative and fun place to work have always been a part of the Google culture. I wonder how much of the results reflect the culture of a country. I am always glad to see how much young engineers appreciate and the companies of their own country. Japan has top 10 employers falling into Japanese corporations. I am really interested in learning the changes among all these countries in the next few years. Thanks Junko for the information.

One wonders how much this list is JUST a reflection of the combination of multinational brand advertizing and negative PR, such as the impact on the Apple brand of tales of alleged working conditions in China. One thing is for sure. These are all very large companies. In general smaller companies are often considered better and more humane places to work. But of course the hundreds of small well-regarded companies in individual countries and known to a few don't compete in the table against the multinationals.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
