They landed in the top three spots on Forbes list of Best Employers in New Jersey.
Apple took the top spot, followed by Wegmans and Selective Insurance.
The list was based on feedback from company employees. Forbes surveyed 70,000 employees at companies with a payroll of at least 500 in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Workers were asked about working conditions, diversity, compensation packages, and potential for development, but they were also asked if they would recommend their employer to others.
Based on that criteria, Forbes came up with a list of the 15 best employers in New Jersey.
Only two of New Jersey's largest employers made the list. Englewood Cliffs based Unilver (12) and New Brunswick based Johnson & Johnson (7).
Only eight of the companies that made the list are based in New Jersey.
Rutgers and Princeton Universities were the only higher education establishments to make the list.
Perhaps a surprise entry on the list of Best Employers was New Jersey Transit at number 5.
Train engineers have been embroiled in a nasty contract dispute with NJT and the union recently launched a strike authorization vote among members.
The engineers union is the last bargaining unit to have an outstanding contract. NJT has settled on new agreements with 14 other unions representing the majority of its workforce. Engineers want a larger pay increases than what the other unions received.
