7. Stryker
The Stryker Corp. was founded by orthopedic surgeon Dr. Homer Stryker in 1941. The inspiration for the company came to Stryker during his years working at his Kalamazoo, Mich., practice, where he made the observation that many of the medical products widely in use at that time were not adequately serving his patients' needs.

Today the company's 15,000 employees develop products and services that serve customers in 120 countries worldwide. Some of the company's products include devices for endoscopy, surgical navigation software, artificial joints and surgical instruments.

The company was listed on Forbes magazine's 2011 list of "100 Best Companies to Work For." The company came in 68th overall and ninth in the field of telecommuting. The listings are largely based on the Great Place to Work Institute's Trust Index Survey, which allows employees to rank their companies on the basis of credibility, job satisfaction and camaraderie.

Employee Review: "Great gadgets and technology to do design work on, it's very rewarding to build and improve surgical products that are used to improve people's lives. Stryker is a very honest company to work for and they take care of their employees very well, even in times of recession...."*

10. Aflac
The company was founded in 1955 by brothers John, Paul and Bill Amos. In 1964 the company pioneered the concept of "cluster-selling" insurance, in which sales agents would go to corporate offices to give groups of workers insurance presentations, as opposed to presenting each person individually.

In 1990 Daniel Amos was named CEO of the company, and in 2000 he made history when he introduced the world to the Aflac Duck. The world-famous fowl now has his own place on the Madison Avenue Walk of Fame and is a universally recognized icon of American popular culture.
As many know, the company lost its long-time spokesperson when they fired the voice of their duck, Gilbert Gottfried, for jokes he made about the Japanese earthquake and tsunami. The company decided to turn the loss into an opportunity, by holding an open online casting via YouTube video auditions. After considering hundreds of applicants, Aflac has decided to hire Dan McKeague, a 36-year-old father of three from Hugo, Wis.

Employee Review: "Great product that provides piece of mind. This is an easy sell if you point out why there is such a need for it. Nice incentives, but the bar is set high."
