Pittman & Brooks // No. 1 Small Company

Work hard, play hard. That sums up this small Portland CPA firm, where the current record is 103.1 hours worked in one week. Employees have 100% flextime during most of the year. But when tax season comes, it’s 50 hours a week in the office, minimum. For those three grueling months, the company provides massages, catered meals and dry cleaning, and leaves gifts on workers’ desks with a card: “This too shall pass.” There’s the “End of Tax Season Party” to look forward to, when employees and their families get together for rock climbing, basketball, dinner and the Tax Season Oscars.

Employees rave about the on-site daycare being open on Saturdays during tax season, and the new wellness program. Fitness, cooking and yoga classes are offered in the evenings and walking contests challenge employees to get fit. (The trough of junk food that usually fuels employees through April 15 may have to be rethought.)

“We understand how valuable our employees are. If they’re not here and happy and productive, nothing works,” says co-founder Randa Brooks. “Our goal is to make it as fun, friendly, happy, accommodating, flexible to work as possible so they can perform at their best. And that’s what they do.”
