Back when I was doing research for my interview with SoftLayer, one of the things I looked for was financial data. Since SoftLayer isn’t a public company, I couldn’t get financial statements. However, I did find some nice round numbers in a press releases that said they did about $110 million in annual revenue. I thought, hey that’s not bad… Then I kept reading and when I saw that there were 170 employees I became impressed. For those without a calculator handy, at these numbers SoftLayer does about $647,000 in revenue a year per employee.
Because people loves lists, I looked up a few other company’s revenue / employee. These are in no particular industry and have nothing specific in common other than that they were the first to come to my mind.
|CompanyRevenue Per Employee||Exxon||$3,235,638|
|New York Times||$314,416|
Does anyone else think gas prices could be lower?
Note: The data for revenue and number of employees was either pulled for public press releases or by looking at the Company Profile (# employees) and Key Statistics (Revenue) on Yahoo! Finance.
