Been counters get it. Rocket scientists don't.

According to BusinessWeek magazine's "The best places to launch a career" this week, Ernst & Young is the number 1 employer with the "Right Stuff." Google is number 7 and Nasa is number 16.

Their ranking is based on three surveys: Employer survery (filled out by employers and lists salaries and benefits) Campus Career services survey, and Student survey. The surveys are weighted in this proportion: Employer survey 50%, Student survey 25%, Career services survey 25%.

I respect BW for their smarts, but I think their weightage is completely off the mark. According to student surveys alone, Google is number 1.
