FORTUNE announced Thursday that Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM) has been ranked 33rd on the 14th annual “100 Best Companies to Work For” list. The full list and related stories appear in the February 7 issue of FORTUNE, available now at

“It is our honor to be recognized by FORTUNE magazine for the 13th consecutive year,” said Dan Sullivan, executive vice president of human resources at Qualcomm. “Many things have changed in the 25 years since Qualcomm began as a small high-tech start up with a big vision to change the world of wireless communications. One thing that hasn’t changed is our belief that the success of our company is entirely based on the hard work, innovative thinking and dedication found in our employees.”

To pick the 100 Best Companies to Work For, FORTUNE partners with the Great Place to Work Institute to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America. Two-thirds of a company’s score is based on the results of the Institute’s Trust Index survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. The survey asks questions related to their attitudes about management's credibility, job satisfaction and camaraderie. The other third of the scoring is based on the company's responses to the Institute's Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, internal communications, training, recognition programs and diversity efforts.
