25 Best Global Companies to Work For

Want to work for a multinational corporation with great perks and opportunities around the world? Here are the 25 best.

Every year, Fortune publishes its list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For (here's the 2011 list), which features the top U.S. companies to work for based on things like benefits, perks, diversity, and pay. Now Fortune's data partner for that list, Great Place to Work, is launching its own list of the best global companies to work for based on many of the same metrics.

Click through to find out the top 25 companies in its inaugural list, "The World's Best Multinational Workplaces," along with some highlights about what makes them so great.

Who qualifies? Companies must have appeared on at least five national Great Place to Work lists, have at least 5,000 employees worldwide, and at least 40% of their global workforce must work outside of the company's home country.
