No. 1 Large Company: U.S. Cellular

Concern for both clients and employees has helped make this wireless network company a 9 time 100 Best winner. “Being part of an organization that values the opinion of their customers and associates makes me feel very proud and very lucky,” says one employee. “We are allowed, as associates of the company, to ask questions, push back on ideas/initiatives and given the freedom to act in the best interest of our company at all times.” People who work here also praise the pay and benefits structure for both part and full time workers, the collegial atmosphere and opportunities for advancement. Says one employee: “Laughter and easy going efficiency are the rule of the day around here, and I’m a perfect example of promoting from within.” Says another: “I look forward to waking up and coming into work everyday.” An employer can’t ask for much more than that.

This company has been the number one best large company four times.

Consumer Cellular said our phone would work with there svc and it did not and they would not admit there mistake and cost us a lot of money in charges to go back to Verizon. We cancelled our service within 45 days and were still charged.

Storyteller in Chief: Power Player

BY LINDA WESTON

In 1996, after a 17-year career in the destination marketing industry, where I gained national standing as the CEO of the Convention & Visitors Association of Lane County, I was recruited by the founders of a new professional basketball league for women. The American Basketball League (ABL) hoped to leverage the success of the 1996 USA women’s national team at the Atlanta Olympics — much like USA Soccer is now leveraging the U.S. Women’s National Team’s victory in the World Cup. The ABL wanted a team in Portland, and they wanted me to be its general manager.

In 2010 Vanessa Keitges and several investors purchased Portland-based Columbia Green Technologies, a green-roof company. The 13-person firm has a 200% annual growth rate, exports 30% of its product to Canada and received its first infusion of venture capital in 2014 from Yaletown Venture Partners. CEO Keitges, 40, a Southern Oregon native who serves on President Obama’s Export Council, talks about market innovation, scaling small business and why Oregon is falling behind in green-roof construction.

BY JACOB PALMER

Most of the food Americans consume is trucked in from hundreds of miles away. Eric Wilson, co-founder and CEO of Gro-volution, wants to change that. So this past spring, the Air Force veteran and former greenhouse manager started work on an alternative farming system he claims is more efficient than conventional agriculture, and also shortens the distance between the consumer and the farm.
