No. 1 Small Company: Rose City Mortgage Specialists
Rose City Mortgage has been a 100 Best winner three times and the collapse of its industry isn't going to change how the employees feel about working there. Over the past few months, they've had to give up their office and reduce their staff and now operate out of their CEOs home. But they understand their culture isn't imbedded in a great office space, it's inside them. The employees at this company brought their values with them: team work, sustainability, community and commitment. At the new home office, the deck is open for meditation and anyone can use the hot tub. Dogs and kids are welcome and the beverages are in the fridge. Flextime and telecommuting are SOP; the employees set their own schedules. "There's no hierarchy here," says one employee. "You feel like family the first day." "It almost seems too good to be true," says another. But it is.

Does the combination yield an equally bounteous office products sector? Not so much. Occupying the limited desk jockey space are Field Notes, a spinoff of Portland’s Draplin Design Company, and Schuttenworks, known for whittling Apple device stands. For a full complement of keyboard trays, docking stations and mouse pads, check out the GroveMade line, guaranteed to boost the cachet of even the lowliest cubicle drone.
