Diversity Inc. magazine has come out with its annual list of top 10 companies for Asian American workers, based on the percent Asian composition of boards of directors, its general work force, new hires, management, along with pay, rates of promotion and retention, and finally, work/life benefits and employee-resource groups. Their top 10 are:
- Ernst & Young
- Pricewaterhouse Coopers
- Coca Cola
- Merrill Lynch
- Bank of America
- Proctor & Gamble
- Wells Fargo
My expertise is not with business management or the corporate world, so I guess I’ll have to take their word for it. One observation did pop out at me though — most of these companies are in the accounting and financial services industry, which only accounts for a small portion of all Asian workers. I bring this up because there are a significant proportion of Asian and Asian American workers in technical, science, and research-related industries, but no companies from that sector are in this top 10 list. Hmmm . . .
How about my readers out there — does anybody have any personal experience with any of these companies and how they treat their Asian/Asian American workers?
