Quicken Ranked #2 in Fortune Magazine's Best Places to Work

Rankings are stupid. In my world though, rankings are only stupid when they say that Michiganders are fat, that businesses don't feel welcome in the state, that foreign cars are ranked better than American cars, and that Detroit is at the top of the most dangerous cities lists. Rankings are not stupid when they say that Quicken Loans, presently of Livonia and in a few years of Detroit, is the second best company to work for in the United States. Yea, thats right, I only like rankings when they serve my own purposes. Quicken's number two ranking according to Fortune Magazine is great for perceptions regarding working in Michigan. I know some things about Dan Gilbert, but to tell you the truth, I know little about Quicken Loans. I do know that Gilbert plans to move the headquarters to the city of Detroit, that it is a fast growing and well known company, and that it seems to consistently be ranked highly in desirable categories. Quicken has become our darling.

Moreover, the company that Fortune Magazine ranked as the best company to work for in the country is Google. While Google does not have a "main" office in Michigan, it does have an office and large presence in Ann Arbor. Therefore, by my calculations, the two best companies to work for in the country are located in the State of Michigan. Michigan is a great place to work. There is no need to look elsewhere after college. Take that Charlotte...
