The geotechnical and engineering company based in the Bay Area is 100% employee-owned. This gives staff a personal stake in ENGEO's success and makes its leaders answerable to them. The company holds "Noonies," weekly all-staff meetings on a range of both professional and personal topics. There's also a big commitment to company-wide fun, with activities like chili cook-offs, go-kart racing and sushi demo days.
It's not just the big corporations with great perks and work environments. These medium-sized companies with 250-999 employees go to great lengths to keep their workers happy, too.
