According to a recent survey, Microsoft is one of the world’s most attractive employers. In fact, Microsoft is so attractive, that more people would rather work for the Redmond giant instead of Apple. However, Google still beats out both companies.

According to the survey conducted by Universum, Microsoft ranked third among the world’s 50 most attractive companies for people seeking engineering careers. Google was at the top of that list coming in at number one while IBM was the second runner-up.

“This is the only global index of employer attractiveness and highlights the world’s most powerful employer brands, those companies that excel in talent attraction and retention. The World’s Most Attractive Employers Index is based on the employer preferences of students from Brazil, Canada,China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Russia, Spain, U.K., and U.S.,” Universum states.

As far as business careers go, Microsoft ranked sixth. Google, again, came in at number one. Apple, on the other hand, came in at number nine.

MBA students would rather work for Google, as the search engine giant came in at number 1 again. Apple came in third and Facebook came in seventh. Microsoft dropped down to eighteenth place.
