No. 1 Large Company: Hitachi Consulting
It’s difficult to create a happy, fun, exciting office environment when your employees spend most of their week on the road. But the Portland office of Hitachi Consulting has figured out the perfect formula. First comes the tangible benefits: health, dental, vision, mental health, fitness and alternative care plans; 30 days of paid time off; flex schedules and telecommuting; volunteering paid time off; sick time for dependents; paternity and maternity leave. Then there are the intangibles: pro bono work, lots of parties and events, training opportunities and career and mentoring programs. Not only does this company teach other businesses how to succeed, they’ve learned how to apply those best practices to themselves. "For the first time in my career," says an employee, "I see myself staying with my employer for the rest of my work life."

No. 2 Large Company: Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants
In the grand debate over employee health-care costs and benefits it’s easy to forget about the cherished four-footed members of one’s family. At Kimpton Hotel and Restaurants, employees also have the option to purchase discounted health insurance for their beloved pets. The company has a director of pet relations to make sure the paperwork goes smoothly. The company also provides education reimbursement for up to $1,000 in tuition and $500 for books. After all that working and studying a mini vacation could be in order. So all employees get free and discount hotel rooms nationwide.

No. 3 Large Company: Qualcomm
Employees at Qualcomm have a lot of good things to say about their culture. "Management consists of good humanists and this shows throughout the organization," says one. "They realize that happy people make good products." Employees enjoy extensive health benefits and 100% paid premiums for themselves and their families. The benefits coverage range from dental and vision to alternative health care. The company also matches one-for-one the amount an employee donates to a nonprofit. Health benefits and a dedication to giving back to the community are notable employee perks, but the company’s wireless device subsidy for employees is also a great reason to work here.
