Choose one company from today’s Fortune 500 list. Research the employee satisfaction of this company by going to salary.com, indeed.com, glassdoor.com, etc to get real time employee feedback and ratings. You will decide if the success of this company is directed related to employee satisfaction levels; even if the salary you are offering is not considered high.

- How satisfied are the employees of the company of your choice? What kinds of things do they have to say about their employers? What do they have to say about their benefits?
- Do you see a relationship in the company of your choice between giving employees benefits and an increase in employee loyalty?
- Is the success of a company directly related to employees satisfaction?
