    A few suggestions, if you ever run this survey again. First, it would be great to see how many each company employs in the state of Utah. It is always easier to satisfy a group of, say 50 for example, versus a group of 2000. It is also very frustrating when data is incomplete. For example, average wages was available for some, but not others.

    Also, count me as one of those that are totally unimpressed with the slide show. give us a chart, which allows a reasonable means to view more data at the same time, and see a side by side comparison. I get so bored with these slide shows. For me, towards the end, I am just giving each slide a cursory glance, anxious to see the last slide and be done.

    The most surprising thing to me was how few of these places I'd ever even heard of.

    I wonder why the CEO approval rating for the LDS Church was only 98%. Seems like a few employees there need to go.

    Deseret News, nice topic. But I'm not interested in strolling through a list of 50 short blurbs. How about writing a real article with true journalism instead of using so many lists?

    How did Adobe get left off this list? It's on all the national places to work.

    Most of the average salaries of these companies is so low. How does anyone afford a home? The housing costs in Utah, especially in Salt lake are outrageous compared to salaries.

    My husband works for Moxtek in Orem and we think they are a wonderful company.

    I'm with MikeW - these aren't lists, these are slide shows. I just want a simple list to read!!

    I was surprised to not see Fidelity Investments in the list. Spent many great years working for the firm.

    I worked for Vision Solutions a few years back and thought they were a great company to work for. I was always treated well and they offered incentives all the time for a job well done. Before most of the office went to work from home, they even used to bring in Einstein bagels for breakfast every Friday. They also have excellent products which made sales and customer service much more enjoyable.

    What about Maverik? Hot Dogs, butterscotch bacon rolls, what more could one ask for?

    Please stop with these lists that I have to click thru 20, 40 or in this case 50 screens to see the results - just post the list in it's entirety.

    Take note of KLAS. The most influential company in healthcare you've never heard of.

    From one ah-ha alum to another, good to see Travis so successful!

    inContact would be on the list, too. Very successful and fun place to work - especially engineering. But it seems that the criteria was inconsistent as the header says privately held companies, but some public companies like Workday were included.

    I was also expecting to see Henry Schein listed. Stable company, sane people all around.

    Hello, I expected to see MarketStar in the list, actually in the top 10. I loved working there. It is a very friendly environment and it has great professionals. The best company I've ever worked for.

    I don't know about what all these companies offer but I think they would be hard pressed to beat the way that Mountain Country Foods treats their employees. Mountain Country Foods is a great place to work. And is truly a world class company!

    I thought eBay would make the list. Was also expecting Zions Bancorp.
