Dream Companies Outside of Finance?

If you didn't work on Wall Street, or in any finance related careers, what would be your dream companie(s)? 

Mine would probably be Google, Netflix, maybe SpaceX, NASA. Not sure what role though.

Also, before some hardo says in a nerdy voice: "your dream should be to be your own boss" well, no shit. But that's not what this topic is about.

SpaceX sounds cool.

Not exactly a company, but I'd love to serve on the federal bench -- a federal appeals court, or the Supreme Court. Even clerking would be cool

Why would you want to work at Netflix?

It is known to be one of the 2/3 highest paying tech companies in the world. People in Product Design, Marketing can pull over $750k without even being in the C-Suite there working industry hours.. Which is nuts since that is highly uncommon elsewhere. 

Downside is getting a job at Netflix has got to be just as competitive as breaking into coveted buyside roles considering everyone from current FAANG employees to people elsewhere already making half a mil apply there

+ generally interesting work

Some sort of emergency manager for nat geo. I had a friend who I served with go do it. He mans the radios and manages the logistics/emergency protocols when nat geo goes and does a shoot etc in a remote location. Not for the feint of heart by any means.

There is nothing else of interest to me besides high finance.
