David Weekley Homes is a great place for millennials to work, according to the latest Fortune magazine survey.

The nation’s largest privately-held builder ranks No. 14 on the latest list — the second annual compilation of the 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials. It's based on a survey of more than 88,000 millennials at more than 600 companies that have been certified as a Great Place to Work in the Fortune annual survey.

Digital marketing company Elite SEM topped the list, while Quicken Loans appears at No. 2 and design firm Kimley-Horn is No. 3.

Millennials make up 27 percent of the David Weekley workforce, which totals 1,336 employees. According to the survey, one David Weekley millennial worker said:

“We meet one on one with supervisors every two weeks. It give great opportunity to express concerns and keep up with expectations. Market Place Ministries stop by once a week for voluntary spiritual counseling. Opportunities for quarterly profit sharing are attainable and regular. The president and founder make fun videos that keep management personable and relatable. Every time the president visits our office he makes it a point to go around to shake the hand of every employee."

David Weekley also ranks No. 2 for Baby Boomers, No. 7 for Gen X’ers, and No. 17th on the “100 Best Companies to Work For” list, appearing for the 10th time on the list in 2016.
