A sculpture is seen on a terrace outside the offices of LinkedIn Thursday, Sept. 22, 2016, in San Francisco.

SALT LAKE CITY — Glassdoor just revealed the 100 best places to work for 2019 based on employee reviews and ratings.

What’s going on: Bain & Company topped the entire list with a 4.6 star rating out of five. Zoom Video Communications, In-N-Out Burger, Procore Technologies and the Boston Consulting group rounded out the top five.

LinkedIn (No. 6) finished ahead of Facebook (No. 7) and Google (No. 8) on the list this year.

Why it matters: Zoom was ranked as the top tech company to work for on the list, according to VentureBeat. The video conferencing product and services company dethroned Facebook as the top-ranked tech company.

Facebook ranked as the top tech company five out of 11 times, though, earning the top spot in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2017 and 2018.

Airbnb beat out Facebook in 2016, Google did the same in 2015 and Twitter won out in 2014.

Asian shares on defensive on mounting signs of a global slowdown – Reuters

TOKYO (Reuters) – Asian share markets started the week on a cautious footing on Monday after weak economic data from China and Europe added to evidence of cooling global growth and reinforced anxiety over the impact of international trade frictions on business and profits.

MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was little changed while Japan’s Nikkei was up 0.1 percent in early trade. U.S. stock futures were also almost flat.

On Wall Street on Friday, the S&P 500 lost 1.91 percent to 2,599.95, marking its lowest close since April 2.

The benchmark has dropped 11.3 percent from its Sept. 20 record close – the worst performance since it fell more than 14 percent between May 2015 and January 2016.

The biggest drag was Johnson & Johnson, which tumbled 10 percent for its biggest drop since 2002, after Reuters reported that the pharma major knew its baby powder was contaminated with cancer-causing asbestos.

The market’s retreat also reflected a worsening global economic outlook, with the latest evidence of slackening momentum coming from China and Europe.

IHS Markit’s Flash Composite Purchasing Managers’ Index slumped to 51.3, its weakest since November 2014, from a final November reading of 52.7. That was well below even the most pessimistic forecast in a Reuters poll where the median expectation was for a modest rise to 52.8.

The survey showed euro zone businesses ended the year in a gloomy mood, expanding their operations at the slowest pace in over four years as new orders growth all but dried up, hurt by trade tensions and violent protests in France.

The discouraging economic news came after China reported a batch of soft indicators, with retail sales growing at their weakest pace since 2003 and industrial output rising the least in nearly three years.

China’s economy has been losing momentum in recent quarters as a multi-year government campaign to curb shadow lending put increasing financial strains on companies in a blow to production and investment.

Investors are now looking to a major speech by President Xi Jinping on Tuesday to mark the 40th anniversary of China’s reform and opening up.

In the currency market, the dollar held firm after having touched a 19-month high against a basket of six other major rivals on Friday as the U.S. economy appeared to be in better shape than others.

U.S. retail sales excluding automobiles, gasoline, building materials and food services rose 0.9 percent last month after an upwardly revised 0.7 percent increase in October.

Against that backdrop, the U.S. Federal Reserve is seen as almost certain to raise interest rates at its two-day policy meeting starting on Tuesday, further enhancing the dollar’s yield attraction.

At the same time, many market players also expect the Fed to lower its projections for future interest rate hikes given increasing headwinds to the economy.

“You could argue that if the Fed lower estimates, that could be taken as a further sign of economic slowdown,” said Hirokazu Kabeya, chief global strategist at Daiwa Securities.

“But given the fragile market sentiment, I would think it would be more dangerous if the Fed sticks to the view that it would raise rates three times next year.”

The euro traded at $1.1307, having fallen to $1.1270 on Friday, its lowest level since Nov. 28.

Sterling hovered near its 20-month low touched last week, as concerns grew that Britain was headed for a chaotic exit from the European Union.

With just over 100 days until Britain leaves the bloc on March 29, Brexit remains up in the air with growing calls for a no-deal exit, a potentially disorderly divorce that business fears would be highly damaging, or for a second referendum.

The pound traded at $1.2580, about a cent above Wednesday’s low of $1.2477.

The yen was flat at 113.36 per dollar.

Oil prices licked wounds after Friday’s falls on concerns about the global economy.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures changed hands at $51.35 per barrel, up 0.3 percent, after a loss of 2.7 percent last week.

Time goes on a hiring spree under new ownership – CNN

New York (CNN)Time is beefing up its newsroom.

The company posted 25 job openings, including 20 for editorial roles, last week. A spokesperson said more will soon follow for roles in technology, sales and marketing.
The hiring spree comes after Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff and his wife Lynne announced in September that they were purchasing the magazine for $190 million from Meredith Corp.
Editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal told CNN’s Brian Stelter on “Reliable Sources” Sunday that the Benioffs were attracted to Time because of the magazine’s legacy and “huge progress” in transforming its business for the digital age.
He said the new owners are “excited to help us build on that foundation and believe in the potential of the brand.”
The magazine business has struggled in the internet age, and Time’s former parent company, Time Inc., endured rounds of layoffs as it lost subscribers and advertising dollars.
Meredith Corp bought Time magazine and the rest of Time Inc. last November, intending to break off and sell its major titles, including Fortune, Money, and Sports Illustrated. The Benioffs did not purchase those magazines.
Marc Benioff told CNN’s Laurie Segall in October that he bought Time because he “values storytellers” and pledged to stay out of editorial decisions.
Felsenthal’s appearance on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” Sunday came after Time made waves with its latest Person of the Year issue. Rather than selecting one subject, four unique covers will honor journalists who have been targeted for their work.
The editor-in-chief told Stelter that the Person of the Year cover intends to capture a “moment in time” — and “the common thread in so many of the major stories of 2018, from Russia to Riyadh to Silicon Valley, was the manipulation and abuse of truth.”
The covers, revealed last week, depict what Time calls “the Guardians” of truth.
One cover features Jamal Khashoggi, the Washington Post contributor who was killed at a Saudi Arabian consulate in October. It marks the first time a deceased person has appeared on a Person of the Year cover.
Another cover features Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, two Reuters journalists arrested in Myanmar while reporting on abuses against Rohingya people, a Muslim minority in the country. The journalists remain behind bars, and their wives were photographed for the cover.
Journalists at the Capital Gazette — the Annapolis, Maryland newspaper where five employees were murdered by a gunman last June — posed for another cover.
The fourth version shows Maria Ressa, chief executive of the Philippine news website Rappler. She was indicted last month on tax evasion charges, a case that free speech advocates say is part of a wider crackdown on dissent by the government.
“We chose to highlight these four journalists and newsrooms who have taken enormous risks, the ultimate sacrifice in some cases,” Felsenthal said, “to speak out and for free expression, which is the lifeblood of democracy, in this year where we saw democracy under such great threat.”
CNN Business’ Jill Disis contributed to this report.

Renault Urges Nissan to Call for Shareholder Meeting Following Nissan Indictment – The Wall Street Journal

NSANY -1.54%

to open a discussion into the balance of power atop the Japanese auto maker after prosecutors charged its former chairman, Carlos Ghosn, and the Japanese firm with financial misconduct.

Thierry Bolloré, deputy CEO of Renault, which owns 43.4% of Nissan, sent a letter dated Dec. 14 to Nissan CEO Hiroto Saikawa urging him to call a shareholder meeting “as promptly as practicable” that would allow a discussion of Renault’s representation on Nissan’s nine-member board and within the ranks of its top managers.

Nissan’s board, which meets Monday, has been without a chairman since Japanese prosecutors, acting on a tip from Nissan, arrested Mr. Ghosn on suspicion of financial misconduct. Nissan then ousted Mr. Ghosn as chairman.

Nissan’s “indictment creates significant risks to Renault, as Nissan’s largest shareholder, and to the stability of our industrial alliance,” Mr. Bolloré wrote in the letter. “We believe a shareholder forum would be the best manner of addressing these matters in an open and transparent fashion.”

Renault hasn’t received a response from Mr. Saikawa, according to a person familiar with the matter. Nissan didn’t respond to requests for comment.

The letter is a sign of how the arrest of Mr. Ghosn—once the glue that held the companies together—is testing the strength of the world’s largest auto-making alliance.

On Dec. 10, Tokyo prosecutors charged Nissan alongside Mr. Ghosn on allegations of reporting only about half of the executive’s compensation at the Japanese company during the five years ended in March 2015. Prosecutors said his true compensation added up to the equivalent of about $87 million over the period, but the company’s financial reports said it was $44 million.

Mr. Ghosn, who was arrested in Tokyo on Nov. 19 and remains in jail, has denied wrongdoing, according to Japanese public broadcaster NHK. The office of his lead Japanese lawyer, Motonari Otsuru, has declined a request for comment. Nissan has apologized for what it called “false disclosures” and said it would improve its governance.

Publicly, Renault and Nissan have said they want to continue the partnership, which allows the auto makers to share technology and platforms. Behind the scenes, however, employees at both companies say mistrust is growing.

Renault bailed out Nissan in the late 1990s, but since then Nissan has grown to become the larger of the two companies. That has led Nissan executives to privately grouse over Renault’s reliance on the Japanese auto maker to pad its bottom line.

A shareholder meeting would allow Renault to renew its push to appoint a successor to Mr. Ghosn on Nissan’s board.

In a November letter to Renault’s board, Nissan’s board said it wouldn’t allow Renault to name a successor because Mr. Ghosn remains one of Renault’s three directors and, in Nissan’s view, Renault isn’t entitled to any further representation on the Nissan board.

Mr. Bolloré pushed back in the letter dated Dec. 14, writing that a shareholder meeting “would allow for appropriate disclosure and discussion of governance and other matters, including the Renault appointees on the Nissan board and in senior management.”

In an earlier letter Mr. Bolloré sent to Mr. Saikawa on Dec. 13, the French executive asked Nissan to provide “full and prompt disclosure” of what it knows about the Japanese car maker’s indictment and called for an assessment of how it will affect its business and senior management. Nissan’s indictment, Mr. Bolloré wrote, “is deeply troubling to us, and it raises significant concerns with respect to issues of corporate integrity, governance and internal controls.”

Mr. Ghosn also remains chairman and CEO of Renault, though his management duties have been delegated to Mr. Bolloré while Mr. Ghosn remains in jail.

Under the rules that govern their alliance, Renault can urge Nissan’s board to call an “extraordinary” shareholder meeting, but must stop short of formally calling one itself. Mr. Saikawa can now put Renault’s suggestion to the Nissan board, or choose to ignore it. If Mr. Saikawa does relay the request, there is no certainty that it will pass.
