Hitachi Consulting // No. 2 Large Company
Pay and benefits at this Portland-based IT and business consulting company are "fair," in the understated words of Vice President Mike Broberg. Employees are entitled to 30 days of paid time off, paternity and maternity leave, comprehensive dental and health including alternative care, and so on. But the things that make Hitachi Consulting a great place to work are harder to quantify.
Camaraderie, for one. Hitachi's 30 employees overwhelmingly cite "the fun people," "the wonderful people," and "the smartest, [most] hard-working, talented people in Portland" as the reason they love their jobs. Employees eat lunch together in the conference room every day. They also have dinner together, hit happy hour together and compete against each other during Funquest, a citywide scavenger hunt — all archived in a mosaic of photos tacked to the hallway wall.
Empowerment, for another. Junior employees get 300 hours of training a year on average. A group of employees from the lowest to the top levels decides how to spend the generous community philanthropy budget. "We enable and encourage those in the office to be involved and define what that looks like and own it," Broberg says. "As a result they're more happy with it."
