Caterpillar doesn’t make Fortune’s Best 100 Companies to Work For

Here’s the list at CNN money. Of course being based in Peoria puts the company in 300th place to begin with (only native Peorians can dis our hometown in such fashion; it’s fightin’ words if anybody else tries it).

Lists such as this are of course barely worth the pixels they paint on your screen but they are always great generators of buzz/readership, which is why magazines like them and blogs can’t resist linking to them.

I couldn’t help noticing Cisco Systems, the network switch/router company, is No. 6. I live about two blocks from Cisco’s world HQ; if only I knew squat about making bits flow over the Internet. I could walk to work and everything.

    Not 100% sure but I don’t think I noticed any hard-core manufacturing companies on the list (heavy equipment, auto, aerospace, ship-building, ag-equipment, etc.). Service, technology, communications, finance, consulting, medical companies seem to be our “favorites” now.
