AMERICAN Cast Iron Pipe Company was recently named by Forbes as one of America’s Best Midsize Employers, those employing 1,000 to 5,000 employees.
Rankings were based on anonymous surveys conducted of 30,000 U.S. employees. More weight was given to the question of whether an employee would recommend his/her own company to others. The survey also asked employees to rate such things as pay, diversity and opportunity for advancement, although these were not weighted in a company’s overall score.
Other Alabama-based midsize companies on the list are Dothan-based AAA Cooper Transportation, and Mobile-based Austal USA. UAB ranked among America’s Best Large Employers.
