No. 2 Large Company: Perkins Coie LLP
This Portland law firm offers excellent pay and benefits, including sabbaticals, tuition reimbursement and a subsidy to help low earning staff pay for their children’s health and dental plan. Employees also praised the firm for its commitment to sustainability, strong IT department, and supportive management. “Management is one of the best I’ve seen in my career and keeps staff appraised with great communication,” says one employee. This firm also pays attention to the finer things in life, including stocking the kitchen with locally roasted espresso, Dave’s Killer Bread and six different kinds of nut butter. That’s a lot of nut butter. An activities committee coordinates fun events once a quarter, while a Happiness committee is dedicated to giving employees, quote, “gifts specially designed to make you smile.” With all those perks and benefits, it’s not surprising that not many suggestions came in for ways to make this company an even better place to work. Says one employee: “Even though there are things I’m not 100% satisfied with, I don’t think anyone else does it better.”
This firm is a six-time winner of our 100 Best award.
