At Pinnacle, fellow employees will be there when you're up against a wall. Literally. New-hire orientation ends with a team-building exercise where associates have to help each other scale a 12-foot wall. Individual and team performances are rewarded with cash incentives and stock options grants. The firm also offers personal enrichment activities for employees ranging from book clubs to health and fitness programs.
It's not just the big corporations with great perks and work environments. These small companies with 25-249 employees go to great lengths to keep their workers happy, too.
