It’s based on the actions of LinkedIn’s more than 546 million professionals and looks at four main pillars: interest in the company, engagement with the company’s employees, job demand and employee retention. The top 10 list includes: Amazon, Alphabet, Facebook, Salesforce, Tesla, Apple, Comcast/NBC Universal, The Walt Disney Company, Oracle, and Netflix.

Here’s what LinkedIn has to say about Apple: “Every launch provides new opportunities for fans and competitors to question whether the world’s most valuable brand can keep up the magic. Last year’s $1,000 iPhone X won accolades for its TrueDepth camera but also prompted questions about its price. To better compete with rivals, Apple has been expanding its engineering and IT headcount, which are up 8% and 4% in 2017, respectively, according to LinkedIn data.”
