The magazine’s survey rated the company second on the list, citing its sensitivity to each individuals’ personal needs, coupled with big-business discipline and tools. The Milwaukee Magazine partnered with MRA: The Management Association Inc., which is a 100-year-old employer association with 2,200 members with firms in Wisconsin and northern Illinois. Together they designed a survey to question companies about their management practices and procedures, including pay and benefits, opportunity for advancement, workplace culture, work-life balance and more.
From the initial responses, high-scoring companies were asked to supply random employee lists where 10 employees were selected from each company for a follow-up telephone survey. Companies were selected on the basis of large companies with 500-plus employees, or mid-sized companies with 101-499 employees.
