How do I look up publicly available information about a company?

I need to look up the number of employees, number of computers in use at workstations, what type of operating system is used at the workstations, et cetera of a company for a school project. Specifically, I want to calculate the costs/benefits of switching from the presumably Windows OS a company uses to Ubuntu.
My teacher has said that all of this type of information (or at least the number of employees) is public information for publicly traded companies. However, I can't seem to find it anywhere. The company can be any company, but I'd prefer it to be a place where a lot of white collar work is done because I feel like it would be easiest to tout the advantages of Ubuntu (we're supposed to be advocating some kind of technical idea, product, or service for a company). Anyway, can anyone help me out on this?
