Big Cities, Big Bucks: Biggest Employers in America's Top Ten Cities


1. New York City

New York, New York – it’s a city so famous for finance and business, it may come as something of a surprise to learn that, like most big cities in America, the number one employer is healthcare. While Wall Street’s presence is felt here, for instance in the name of one of the biggest hospitals, Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital, the city is also known for being a world class medical research and treatment center.

On the Best Hospital winners list, you’ll find New York Presbyterian. In the Nobel department, who can even count the number of Nobel Prizes in medicine awarded to NY recipients? One institution alone – Columbia University Medical Center has more than 16 to its credit – and there are more in this worldly metropolis.

No one needs to tell you that there are opportunities abound here – but where to begin? This list of top employers should help:
