Technology companies have made a strong showing in BRW's 50 best places to work list, performing just as well as they did last year.
Google lost its first-place pedestal to Microsoft consultancy OBS, and the search giant was also pipped to second place by NetApp Australia, which won in 2010.
BRW's best workplace list started in 2009, when Google took out the crown.
Google came third this year, with e-Web Marketing, Altis Consulting, Salesforce.com and business and technology consulting firm Cordelta following.
The highest-placing company that's unrelated to technology, the Physio Co, took eighth place.
However, the technology companies kept coming, with Atlassian ranked the ninth best place to work and McAfee taking out 11th place.
Other technology companies that are featured in the top 50 list include Juniper, ThoughtWorks, Kiandra IT, Amgen Australia, Check Point, Hitachi Data Systems and SAS Australia. BRW identified 20 technology and biotechnology companies in the top 50.
