Best companies rank: 7

The 120-year-old maker of consumer products like Windex, Ziploc and Pledge is owned by the Johnson family. Five generations have been at the helm. Founded and still headquartered in Racine, Wisconsin, the company now has more sales - and employees - outside the U.S. than inside.

Pay and benefits are exemplary at S.C. Johnson. In addition to its 401k plan, profit sharing regularly pays out 13 to 15 percent of pay. There is a deferred profit sharing plan that is funded annually with 2 percent of pay, and a defined contribution pension plan on top of that. Other benefits and perks include on-site child care and an on-site fitness center with a pool. Employees who live more than 25 miles away from work can check into a hotel four times a month, paying just $20 a night; Johnson picks up the rest.
