San Francisco Business Times

What s really going on in the Bay Area? Most people look to SFGate.com or the Chronicle. In this day and age of instant information, most doubt how much information is available in a weekly local publication. Hands down, this newspaper has the pulse on the business environment of the Bay Area, with a heavy emphasis to San Francisco. Subscribing for over fifteen years, my workplace is a loyal customer to this great information source. Whether reading about what new businesses or projects are in the area to finding out what homes are selling for in the various Bay Area counties, SF Business Times keeps you on top of the area news.
Whether you are in marketing, real estate, finance, or just nosy about what s going on, there s always some information that makes you say, Gee, that s interesting!
Also, full props to their customer service staff in sending me missing issues (still not sure if it s my mailman or my coworkers) – likely suspects!). Unlike the other paper, I don t need to run to a newsstand and pay for another copy. Check this periodical out!

Was this review ?

Their customer service is deplorable. You cannot speak with a human being, basically ever. I called customer service one morning. No one answered after 9am. And no one ever called me back. Any time I have needed to talk to them it was because they screwed up one of our office s subscriptions. Wish they weren t the only game in town. Uggggh!

Was this review ?

As a big fan of information, Knowledge is Power, I was very impressed with the Read to Succeed Seminar I attended at this publication s office. I know the title smacks of a literacy program, but it was actually an informative meeting on how to read the weekly publication to expand on networking and marketing.

In these uncertain economic times, newspapers and jobs are falling by the wayside. Judd Walsh opened my eyes on ways to utilize many of the great sections to find sales leads, build market intelligence, and prospecting. He gave great tips and suggestions.

Some of the most valuable info in the SFBT is in the form of The Lists published weekly and then at the end of the year in a large compendium. These Listings cover topics such as Best Places to Work in the Bay Area to The Top Wineries. Event announcements and articles on the different industries are excellent resources.

I am now going to subscribe to the newspaper. Thanks to Veronica and also the gentleman that gave me a copy of 2009 Zagat Guide.

Definition of Stock Market – The Economic Times #financing #a #new #business

Definition of ‘Stock Market’

Definition: It is a place where shares of pubic listed companies are traded. The primary market is where companies float shares to the general public in an initial public offering (IPO) to raise capital.

Description: Once new securities have been sold in the primary market, they are traded in the secondary market—where one investor buys shares from another investor at the prevailing market price or at whatever price both the buyer and seller agree upon. The secondary market or the stock exchanges are regulated by the regulatory authority. In India, the secondary and primary markets are governed by the Security and Exchange Board of India (SEBI).

A stock exchange facilitates stock brokers to trade company stocks and other securities. A stock may be bought or sold only if it is listed on an exchange. Thus, it is the meeting place of the stock buyers and sellers. India’s premier stock exchanges are the Bombay Stock Exchange and the National Stock Exchange.

Pure Storage Recognized as Top Workplace by San Francisco Business Times for Third Consecutive Year

All-Flash Enterprise Storage Company Ranks #2 Among Bay Area Companies with 101-500 Employees on Annual Best Places to Work List

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – April 25, 2014 — Pure Storage, the all-flash enterprise storage company, today announced that it has been named to the San Francisco Business Times’ annual list of Best Places to Work in the Bay Area for a third consecutive year. The company ranked #2 in the medium-sized company category (101-500 employees), and received high marks for its meritocratic work environment, diverse and talented workforce, and thriving company culture.

The 11th annual Best Places to Work in the Bay Area awards were presented by the San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley Business Journal at a ceremony on April 17, 2014. Each year, the publications compile the annual list based on employee surveys that measure worker satisfaction across several areas, including personal growth, workplace environment and managerial effectiveness.

“Spontaneous fun” tops the list of employees’ favorite things about office life at Pure Storage. From impromptu Nerf Bazooka fights, to company-wide in-office bungee races, the “Puritans” enjoy a truly ‘work-hard, play-hard’ culture. The company’s smart, dedicated team and hands-on, “in the trenches” executive leadership were also highlighted by employees as being key to what makes working at Pure Storage special.

“It is an honor to again be recognized as one of the Bay Area’s top workplaces by the SF Business Times, and we are immensely grateful to our employees for their enthusiasm and support,” said Scott Dietzen, CEO of Pure Storage. “Ultimately, it’s the people and culture at Pure Storage that make our company great. We’re proud to offer a work environment where trailblazers, innovators and disruptors thrive. We look forward to adding more exceptional people to our ranks in 2014—in the Bay Area, and beyond—as we continue to aggressively scale our operations around the globe.”

Pure Storage was founded in 2009, with a vision to transform the enterprise storage industry. Since emerging from stealth in 2011, it has achieved unprecedented growth, expanding rapidly to meet global demand for its next generation, all-flash enterprise storage array. Even as it scales to support massive global growth, the company remains committed to preserving the culture, ethics and values it was founded on.

The Sunday Times Best 100 Companies

Welcome to The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For. This is the 16th annual survey and ranking of the cream of Britain’s employers, and its appearance each year is a high-profile event in the nation’s business calendar.

The data-gathering and analysis used across all sectors are extensive. It’s the staff themselves who fill in the anonymous surveys from which the scores are compiled — a total of 241,361 people filled out questionnaires for this year’s lists — so we’re getting opinions about their bosses, their working conditions and their employer’s values direct from the people whose hard work builds the success of their business, whether they’re lawyers, mechanics or shop assistants.

And once a company is on the list, they have to work to stay there. In all 925, firms registered to take part in this year’s surveys and there are 79 new entries, displacing those who didn’t make the grade this time.

Our lists honour:

■ The 100 Best Companies to Work For in the mid-size category, (250-3,000 employees).

■ The 25 Best Big Companies to Work For (3,000-plus).

■ SMEs (50-250 staff) are assessed in The Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to Work For.

■ Public-sector bodies, charities and housing associations are recognised in 100 Best Not-for-Profit Organisations to Work For.

All these lists can be found any time online at thesundaytimes.co.uk/best100companies

Congratulations to all the organisations on this year’s lists.
