This list is not primarily based on compensation benefits but on the pride you’ll have working for the companies. It is also taking into account the graduate-friendly environment these companies have. This is basically a highlight on the best companies to grow in.

The list – in no particular ranking of entities  – has been inspired by Jeff Bezos, Amazon CEO’s view of what a brand is;

“Your brand is what people say about you when you’re not in the room,” he once said. It is based on the public’s perception of the companies; the image they hold in the society.
