"Google's stock climbed past $1,000 in 2013, a boon for Googlers, all of whom are stockholders," Fortune said adding that "Google tops the list once again, marking its eighth appearance and fifth time as No. 1."

The tech giant's well-documented employee benefits helped land it the top spot on this list, the magazine said and added that its perks go beyond the office.

So much so that three winners of Google's annual talent show opened for Bruno Mars at his Las Vegas show in April at the Global Sales Conference.

Others in the top ten companies include, financial services firm Edward Jones ranked fourth in the list, mortgage lender Quicken Loans, biotech giant Genentech, leader in cloud computing salesforce.com, software firm intuit, financial services company Robert W Baird & Co and DPR Construction.

Among other noted names, Qualcomm was ranked 32 in the list, Goldman Sachs Group (45), CISCO (55), Marriott International (57), Deloitte (61), PricewaterhouseCoopers (65), American Express (67), Novo Nordisk (72), Ernst & Young (78), Discovery Communications (79), KPMG (80), Intel (84), Microsoft (86), Accenture (90) and Hyatt Hotels (95).

To pick the 100 Best Companies to Work For, Fortune partnered with the Great Place to Work Institute. More than 252,000 employees at those companies were surveyed by the institute.

Any company that is at least five years old and has more than 1,000 US employees is eligible.
