A recent report from Forbes had both the University of Arizona and Honeywell as one of the 500 best employers in the nation.
The study qualified companies with 2,500 or more employees only.
Arizona ranked 83rd on the list and 11 other education companies finished higher. Honeywell came in at No. 440.
Google, Costco, Marathon, The Container Store and L.L. Bean took the top five spots on the list.
Honeywell lists on LinkedIn that it has more than 10,000 employees in its Phoenix-based aerospace division.
Arizona has a similar number of employees spread from Tucson to Phoenix.
