The Austin-based company supports homegrown talent by having monthly "Cirrus Logic Rocks!" concert events on the company's outdoor terrace featuring local musicians. Support for local artists also continues through the company's support of an organization that provides health-care services to struggling musicians. There are also incentives for staff to actively recruit talent, and when an employee referral gets hired, the referrer gets cash and an iPad as a reward.
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.
