CNN Money included criteria for how companies treat their LGBT employees in their rating system for the best companies to work for list. They included two categories that are important to LGBT employees, an LGBT inclusive non-discrimination policy and domestic partner benefits.

Offering both of those policies helped companies rank higher on the list.

If you are searching for a job, good luck. Most of the companies on this list have a very low turn over rate.

Well ... I'll just say that I =used= to work for a company that is high on those lists. But it seems that as soon as a tranny leaves the protection of whatever executive found their plight worthy of protection they find themselves a victim of the next round of layoffs to come down the road.

In my case it took a couple of Senior Vice Presidents leaving before anyone was able to put me on a list to RIF.

What's needed is a "Queer people's list of the 100 best companies" that doesn't include check-box items. How about one that includes "All the trannies you know there either still work there or left voluntarily"?

Well, it's a positive change and a good sign of increasing awareness.

Too bad the specific questions aren't readily available: I've come to have some skepticism about LGBT inclusions often leaving out the last letter...

The link you provided to CNN Money did not include any criteria on how companies treat their LGBT employees. Where can I find this information?

We have much more then luck, we have spirit!

Click through to the company you are interested in and scroll down to the diversity section. It only lists the two criteria I mentioned so it is a small win, but it is a win.
