Fortune has revealed its list of the top companies to work for in America and Google is number one, again. And for the first time ever the annual ranking also includes the list of the top 10 best companies for women to work at.This is the 6th time Google has cinched first place. No surprise with the chance to work on cool products and the famous employee perks. Among them, 12-weeks paid paternity leave for both men and women, and a free cafeteria. Google will even have someone do your laundry for you.

Other companies have cool benefits too. At Marriott International (No. 53), you get free hotel rooms for life, even after you leave the company. At Cisco Systems (No. 70), 95 percent of the employees get to work home two days a week. Game company Activision Blizzard (No. 96) gives cash bonuses to employees and their families for daily steps tracked on Fitbits.


But you can't get on the list just by throwing a few foosball tables around the office. Factors like a sense of mission and trust were also considered.

Here's the top overall:
