Best places for Baby Boomers to work in Chicago

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

They were named the best jobs for millennials by Crain's Chicago Business.

The are vibrant with ping pong tables, exciting office dogs and unpredictable with unexplainable fascinations with Patrick Swayze.

What more could you want?

Well, we asked – and you answered.

After FOX 32's story aired Wednesday, we received a powerful question on the FOX 32 Facebook page: "Any for Baby Boomers? We need work too!"

Well, ask and you shall receive.

Crain's also compiled a list of the best places in Chicago to work – period.

So if you care less about ping pong tables and more about profit sharing, less about media rooms and more about maternity leave, if you're looking at the millennial generation in the rearview mirror, these jobs are for you:

First up, Centro LLC., a software and service provider of advertising services that has been named the number one place in Chicago to work for four years running.

There are more than enough perks to justify starting a career there.

Not far down the list of best places in Chicago to work, at number two, is a little company you may have heard of - Microsoft.

Providing paid maternity and paternity leave, spending accounts for child care and up to $800 a year for gym membership, the tech behemoth knows how to treat its employees.

FOX 32 is told Microsoft's success as an employer comes down to three things.

Alright, so maybe you don't need a ping pong table or a Patrick Swayze room but instead, life insurance and paid leave.

There are dream jobs out there for you too – trust me, I asked.
