Surveys like this are always interesting, especially in light of what you hear on the field. I was talking to someone the other night who actually declined a job offer from Google on the basis that the company pretty much stiffled creative freedom, and while offering large cash incentives, was more "the equivalent of working for a big investment bank these days" than working for an innovative tech company, according to my dinner companion. There is no doubt about it, Google is a pedigree brand and corporation - but it's certainly a very different place from ten years ago.

I wonder, then: where would "working for yourself" come on this list of "best companies to work for 2007"? With rising private investment, slowing negative growth in GDP, ascending capital markets and increased liquidity, it can't be discounted now as a viable challenge.
