Scottrade
2009 Best Companies rank: 60

Because Scottrade is a privately held company with a conservative growth strategy, there's room for flexibility and a strong focus on the happiness -- and longevity -- of employees, he says. Lower profits have sometimes meant smaller bonuses some years, but associates have always received them despite the tough economy. According to one thankful employee: "Job security is priceless, not just for your pocketbook, but for your peace of mind."
