I had an odd conversation last week with a friend. It went (roughly) like this:
Mike: You know, this place is a big company.
Me: Yes. Duh.
Mike: Like, really big.
Me: Uh, I think I said “duh” already.
Mike: So you design web apps for one of the biggest companies around.
Me: Oh. Yeah, I guess that’s true.
State Farm fluctuates from year to year with its position in the Fortune 500, but almost always it is in the top 25. I think it was at 21 last year.
So basically I design web applications for a Fortune 25 company. When I look at it this way, it’s pretty cool.
