You Will Want to Work at These Millennial-Friendly Companies

new survey on the 100 best workplaces for millennials found that this sought-after generation of workers is looking to do something meaningful. In fact, research from Great Place to Work, who surveyed more than 398,000 young adults found that when employees found "special meaning" in their jobs they were six times more likely to stay.

At Ultimate Software in Weston, Fla., number one on the list, managers cater birthday lunches and give "frequent recognition for our work."

At number two, Cary, North Carolina's SAS Institute Inc., there is a "very unique sense of community."

And at Quicken Loans, number three, employees rave that "what we do for the city of Detroit is incredible."

Millennials are more likely to stay with an employer that builds a “high-trust culture,” according to the research, and those who reported a positive workplace experience are 20 times more likely than their peers who don’t report the same experience to stay with the company. This was higher than Gen Xers (15 times) and Boomers (nine times).

According to the Great Place to Work's rankings, here are seven more companies who are nailing millennials' priorities:

4. Salesforce (information technology, San Francisco)
5. Encompass Home Health and Hospice (health care, Dallas)
6. Point B Inc. (professional services, Seattle)
7. Navy Federal Credit Union (financial services & insurance, Vienna, Virginia)
8. Kimley-Horn (professional services, Raleigh, North Carolina)
9. Veterans United Home Loans (financial services & insurance, Columbia, Missouri)
10. Zillow Group (information technology, Seattle)
