The 10 Companies Young People Want To Work For Most: Universum

The Huffington Post     First Posted: 03/22/11 04:07 PM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 07:40 PM ET

The employer branding firm, Universum, recently asked young professionals for their thoughts on America's employers including which they'd most like to work for. Some of the workplaces -- the Central Intelligence Agency, for one -- certainly aren't for everyone.

Universum says that the results could be a reaction to a poor economy. Several companies on the list, including Teach For America (#10), may reflect young Americans' desire for a reliable and accommodating professional life.

The 10,306 people surveyed, who had an average age 27, said that a balance between personal life and work as well as job security are the two highest priorities when it came to choosing an employer. In addition, respondents said that a good reputation opposed to financial strength or ethics was the most important factor concerning a company's image.

Which companies topped the list? Check out the top 10 below and visit Universum for more information:
