 No. 1 Medium Company: Slalom Consulting

 Consulting can be savagely competitive, but this Portland firm manages to retain top talent, even as it rapidly grows headcount. “We have recruited the best people in our industry and tackle the most challenging problems of our clients,” says an employee. “And after we succeed, we celebrate.” This includes a Guy Fawkes party at the GM’s house, poker nights, family picnics and  “Partiamo,” a weekend retreat at a resort with team activities like rafting and a giant party. Says one employee, “I know their spouses’ names, kids’ names, and pets’ names and they know mine.” The firm is family friendly, even providing $4.000 adoption assistance. Employees praise its delivery on mission, transparency and receptiveness. A voluntary employee board helps shape local strategy. The firm invests heavily in staff development and incentives, providing $2,000 a year for off-site training, 8-12% annual bonuses, milestone bonuses of $2,000 -$50,000 and spot bonuses of $1,000-$10,000, as well as a four-week paid sabbatical every three years. Loyalty is rewarded after four years tenure with even more bonus, extra time off and a special retreat. Sponsored teams at Hood To Coast and Wild Canyon Games, as well as an annual fat loss contest boost fitness and camaraderie. One employee sums it up as “a great place to get a broad set of experiences in a short amount of time.”

This is its fifth consecutive year in the 100 Best, and second year in a row as number one.

Ruby does NOT pay their employees well. I don't know what your source is, but that place is like a happiness sweatshop.
